India’s best loved comic, ‘Walking On Broken Das’ coming to Edinburgh fringe festival

A series of monologues, it takes audience on a cheeky romp

29th July 2011:
Dubbed as India’s best loved comic, ‘Walking On Broken Das’ is coming to the Edinburgh fringe festival.
It features ‘one of Delhi’s top ten dream men’ and is a hysterical take on Indian trends, morality.

A series of monologues takes the audience on a cheeky romp through a range of issues and a wild and various cast of impersonations.

So, get ready for a slice of Indian at the festival this year with the radiant, side-splitting and hyper new show, starring stand up comedian and actor Vir Das.

You can see it from the Monday 12 to Tuesday 20 August at City Edinburgh Nightclub.

After the successful theatre performances in the UK of Double Deal, Mad About Money, Funny Thing Called Love, Punch-a-Tantra etc, Ashvin Gidwani Productions (AGP) now makes its debut with stand-up comedy giving Indian comedy its very own platform at the festival.

It will also feature acts by leading young stand- up comedian Rohan Joshi.

It has already played to sell-out crowds around India and has successfully toured Asia.

You will find comedy in almost everything — Das brushing your teeth, combing your hair and longing to become a dirty old man.

His unending energy, and his keen observations on things you fail to notice, leaves you laughing in fits.
