One of India's earliest stand-up comedians, Das spends nearly half of his time working on movies. The other half he uses to do live gigs, organise comedy festivals and manage upcoming comics through his consultancy Weirdass Comedy. This year, Das returned with the second season of his live comedy tour, The Unbelievable Tour, while also appearing in a clutch of Hindi films, including Mastizaade, Shivaay, 31st October and Santa Banta Pvt Ltd. He is also set to become the first ever Indian comic to get his own Netflix original comedy special.
Fast Fact: The first season of The Unbelievable Tour reportedly had the highest ticket sales for any comedy tour in India.
