Vir Das' lockdown special Inside Out to premiere on Netflix on December 16
Intended to collect funds for charity, the 50-minute showreel is pieced together from 30 virtual live-shows the comedian did during the lockdown
Vir Das’ lockdown special, Inside Out is all set for release on Netflix worldwide on December 16. Intended to collect funds for charity, the 50-minute showreel is pieced together from 30 virtual live-shows he did during the lockdown.
Having released Inside Out independently on his website for charity back in August, Vir Das is now debuting the show on his home turf.
Talking to us, he said, "I never planned to put another comedy special out this year. But since when does 2020 care about our plans? We started 2020 together on Netflix, let's end this crazy year together too. The charity special was conceived and executed as an experiment. The response was humbling and overwhelming. The proceeds we raised were a testament to the fact that there's enough kindness in the world for survival. With the show now releasing worldwide, I hope that more and more people take in the learnings of this lockdown."
This is Vir’s first Netflix special in 11 months since For India. On his newest collaboration with the streamer, the comedian added, “I am so happy that Netflix will be reaching this show to people in more than 200 countries. I am a Netflix guy and they loved the content, which is so reassuring for me as a content creator. Their support has always been there and that has truly given me the confidence to go out there and do better work.”
