Vir Das talks about The Most Epic Max Show 

Stand up comedian and actor Vir Das had quite a productive time in the lockdown. Apart from doing some online comedy shows and filming a Hollywood project, Vir also filmed for an original Indian Creator Show for Snapchat’s mobile first audience. His segment 'The Most Epic Max Show' features him taking on some new quirky challenges.

Explaining the format of the show, Vir says, "The theme of the show is that you don’t have to do big things to feel epic about yourself. You can do really small stuff and feel epic about yourself as well. If you look at social media, people are like, whoa, I climbed Kilimanjaro or I went to this amazing waterfall, etc. But to me making the perfect noodles or using just vanilla ice cream to make a dessert, or creating the perfect apology that works for your wife or for any woman, I think that’s more epic, because it’s more real. I was not on Snapchat, the demographic is Gen Z. So it’s a very different audience. It sounded like a really cool challenge to try and do epic things, but within the confines of my own house."

Vir Das also did his part in raising money for the pandemic affected people by doing charity shows. He says, "I’m thankful to people who bought tickets, because we were able to raise a lot of money for charities. The lockdown gave me time to pause and concentrate on a little bit of writing and development. The next two projects that I’m going to be acting in, I managed to write during the pandemic. And I have a new stand-up show that I’ve written, so it gave me time to just sit back and write new jokes as well. So it’s been all around very healthy."
