Comedian-actor Vir Das is set to perform at the iconic Apollo Theatre in London on 16th December.

The Apollo Theatre is a venue steeped in musical history having witnessed performances from iconic acts like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Iron Maiden, and contemporary music royalties such as Selena Gomez and Kylie Minogue.

Excited to perform at the Apollo Theatre as part of his Mind Fool tour, Vir Das said, “Stepping onto the Apollo Theatre stage is not just a personal triumph; it’s a momentous occasion for Indian comedy. The energy of this historic venue, which has hosted musical legends and comedy icons alike, is both exhilarating and humbling. As I stand before a live audience of almost 5000 people, I am driven by a desire to connect, to bring joy, and to be a bridge between cultures. The Mind Fool tour is my way of spreading laughter across borders, and I can’t wait to share this experience with audiences around the world.”

Vir Das is currently basking in an International Emmy win. Last month, Vir Das won the prestigious International Emmy Award for Comedy for his standup special ‘Vir Das: Landing’
