Vir Das, an Indian Comedian, will be performing at the Dubai Comedy Festival, which started on Thursday, 12 May. The festival will be going on for 11 days and will have a number of comedians performing gags around different popular venues in the city.
After two successful seasons that were totally sold out, the Dubai Comedy Festival is back for another thrilling 11-day long event this month. Some of the well renowned, internationally acclaimed comedians like Jo Koy and Russel Peters will be performing at stand up gigs around the city, along with a variety of shows and activations like Comedy Bizarre.
In an interview, Vir Das said while expressing his thoughts about his performance that, “I promise that I always want to send you back having known new things and sharing a little of my soul with you. I will make you uncomfortable, and I will also make you happy. There will be laughable moments, and if you are from India, I know you are not home, but I will be the guy who will make you feel like you are home.”
The comedian expressed delight over the opportunity to perform in Dubai and said, “I believe it is a great audience. It is cosmopolitan and diverse. They are from various parts of the world. They are told about other cultures and life stories and are ready to go on a journey with you to new places.”
“I am always delighted to come back to Dubai. In places like Dubai, individuals from everywhere come to the show,” he added.
The Laughter Factory will also be hosting excellent performances with worldwide-renowned comics like Ger Saunton, Aurie Styla and Ali Sultan. A host of funny sets will entertain visitors during this mega summer festival. The tickets for the event are available online.
