The Last Parsi

In this stand-up act, Danesh Irani will caricature an archetypal Parsi ‘bawa’, and the attitudes that define him—he is a true blue blood, the grandson of the queen of England, sent over to Mumbai to blend with the crowd. Irani talks about the issues Parsis face with language, climate, and how a day in the life of a Parsi is.
