Vir Das, the actor-comedian who became the first Indian to have his own Netflix special show — Abroad Understanding was present as a guest on the talk show Conan, hosted by veteran American host and comedian, Conan O'Brien. He also debuted on the same late-night American TV show earlier this year.
Talking about going places Das explained his understanding of the world to America. Das spoke about India's ever-growing population, its successful space outings, American president Donald Trump, the status of natural resources in Africa, how there are more problems worldwide and not only in America and how everything in Canada is perfect.
"Its annoying," quipped Das to O'Brien's disappointment at Canada's state. In a seven-minute monologue, the actor comedian split down the news of the world into segments with hilarious results.
Speaking about the growing threat of a world war between the United States allies and the rest of the world, Das said the United States might just be a 'billion people short'. "Do you know who has a billion people?" asked Das pointing to himself before adding, "Now would be a good time to apologise for Apu!"
O'Brien was the writer on the team of The Simpsons, and often wrote situations for the characters, including the Indian character called Apu in the series.
The video has garnered nearly 250k views since it was uploaded last night and is now going viral. This was the actor's second appearance on the television chat show, after his earlier appearance in April.
