New Delhi: Comedian Vir Das made his American TV debut on Late Night With Conan O'Brien and absolutely killed it. Vir, who was invited to Conan because of his new Netflix show Abroad Understanding, had the crowd ROFL in his five-minute segment in which he skewered his own accent (with a reference to The Simpsons' character Apu Nahaseemapetilon - more about that below), the colour of his skin, arranged marriages, and, but of course, POTUS. "You guys are complaining too much. 'I didn't vote for this guy and now I've got to live with him.' To you Americans, that's a president. To most Indian's that's a marriage. Donald Trump is your arranged marriage," he joked. The video of Vir Das' Conan appearance has been doing the rounds of social media and has been watched over one lakh times.
