Aziz Ansari

Aziz Ansari

If you only know Aziz Ansari as the swagger-obsessed, would-be entrepreneur Tom Haverford on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, that’s OK. Ansari managed to turn television’s most shallow character into a somehow heartwarming dude who can still stick lines like “sometimes you gotta work a little, so you can ball a lot.” However, comedy nerds will tell you this is only the surface of Ansari’s appeal. A former cast member of MTV’s Human Giant sketch series, he’s toured as a stand-up prodigiously and released three specials: Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening, Dangerously Delicious and, most recently, Buried Alive, which you should definitely stream on Netflix now (seriously, right now, your boss will understand). Don’t worry, you won’t spoil anything. Ansari wrote on his Tumblr that the material he’ll feature on this tour will be all new. Sold out ($57-$650 at stubhub.com), 8pm Mon, The Majestic Theatre, (210) 226-3333, 224 E Houston, majesticempire.com. —Callie Enlow
