Vir Das' new Netflix comedy special Outside In to premiere on December 16
The special captures the mundaneness of being stuck at home, and heartwarming stories about everything that the lockdown put us through
Comedian-actor Vir Das' next Netflix comedy special, Outside In, is set to begin streaming from December 16. It is a first-of-its-kind homegrown comedy special taken from 30 virtual shows that he did during the lockdown. Though the show itself started off as a one-off gig in April, as the demand continued, he converted it into a continual series and all the proceedings went to charity.
The special captures the mundaneness of being stuck at home, and heartwarming stories about everything that the lockdown put us through. In a statement, Vir said, "There couldn't have been a better way to end the year and I say this beyond my personal reasons. The special is a showreel of everything that we've gone through this year and how, as human beings, we went through the same emotions at the same time. It was my most fulfilling piece of work because even if for an hour, I could make people smile when they needed it the most. And we raised money for charity while doing it. This special is dedicated to each of us who survived a horrific year and hopefully we carry forward the lessons to 2021."
Earlier this year, Vir released another comedy special on Netflix, Vir Das: For India. He also fronted Hasmukh, a thriller series on the streamer.
