American show for Vir!


Mumbai, March 25 -- Vir Das has been making waves internationally. First, he was signed by the agency that also handles Priyanka Chopra's international assignments.

Then, he did a three-city US tour last year, which received a phenomenal response. Owing to its success, he was invited to the US again this year.

And now, the stand-up comic-actor has been signed for an American TV show. A source close to Vir says, "Observing the kind of response he has been getting in the US, a popular comedy management company, which has worked with celebrities like Jamie Foxx, Jeff Dunham, Trevor Noah, Daniel Tosh, Tracy Morgan, Amy Schumer and Gabriel Iglesias, has signed him. He has also been offered the lead role in an American comedy TV show."

When contacted, Vir's spokesperson confirmed the news, and said, "We believe that the production house of the show approached him because of the response his acts have been receiving in the US. He has started shooting for the pilot of the comedy show. The rest of the schedule is yet to be decided."
