1. Vir Das: For India on Netflix

Funny and insightful, Vir Das' For India takes an indulgent but honest look at things that are quintessentially Indian. 

2. Yours Sincerely, Kanan Gill on Netflix

Everyone's favourite desi 'movie reviewer', Kanan Gill delivers a stand-up special that perfectly combines humor with nostalgia. 

3. Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill on Netflix

For fans of Seinfeld's brand of cranky, humorous insights, this is a special treat. And for the rest of the audience, it still manages to be a hilarious, if not flawless, comedy special.
