It’s that time of the year again, guys! Vir Das‘ much awaited Weirdass Pajama Festival is back and all set to give you the best weekend of the year. As a Pajama Fest loyalist, the upcoming weekend is one of my favourites and there’s no reason you should miss it! The Festival starts on the 23rd of January (Friday) and spans 3 cities, 120 shows and 100 artists!

But why take my word for it? We got Vir Das himself, to give you 10 great reasons why you have to be at the fest AND he did all this in 60 seconds – like a boss!

Check it out!

Here’s what he said:

1. Indians Are Cheap!

Indians are cheap! So if you buy a pajama ticket, you get a boxer ticket free! So you buy a ticket to watch Vir Das and you get to watch 15 other comics in a day for free!

So basically, with every show ticket you book for over Rs 1750, you get a free ticket that gives you access to more shows. Amazing, right?

2. It’s Everywhere!

After History of India and Battle of Da Sexes, Vir Das debuts his brand new show Unbelievablish at the Fest. He’s going to be talking about banging Buffy the Vamire slayer, talking with the President about lesbians and losing 4 million dollars in a drunk night. I can’t wait for this one!
