Vir Das has aced the format of lockdown comedy. Last year the versatile comedian, did a series of lockdown shows and recorded even a Netflix special amid the lockdown, did stand up for causes and now with the brutal second wave hitting India like a tsunami, Vir Das is doing a series of shows again.
Intended to touch upon important topics amid the gloom and also aimed at contributing these shows for charity, the series titled TenOnTen in its latest episode touches sensitively on the ironic topic of Jokes for the Dead. By using humour, Vir Das touches upon the topic of death and the failure of a system of governance at large.
He also highlights the importance of human spirit and how common citizens and not authorities have come to the rescue of people and have helped each other during this time of grief. Using comedy to touch upon the reality of the situation in India, Vir paints a picture of reality of the COVID situation in India.
