However, if you enjoy Aziz's antics and hard-R comedy, this is the gig for you. There is nobody quite like Aziz in the world of stand up. Everything about him is unique- his appearance, his material, and his delivery. He's just a delightfully weird funny man, and it's easy to see why he has become an integral part of "Parks and Recreation".
Unfortunately, the set is seriously undermined by Ansari's decision to perform a 10-minute encore as his character "Randy" from the Judd Apatow film FUNNY PEOPLE. Randy is a standup comedian whose humour is exceedingly coarse, consisting only of sexual and scatological references. No doubt Ansari finds this character a way to unwind and do something different from his traditional standup style, but after nearly an hour of fine, imaginative comedy, the Randy character is just odious.
Though I enjoyed most of this, it's hard to recommend purchasing the DVD, even for established fans of Aziz Ansari, as the comedy is solid but in no way legendary.
Known for playing with characters for their witty humor, Ansari's comedic ties began while he was attending college at New York University where he performed stand up comedy in NYC especially at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. His comedy attracted a lot of people in the area and sure enough Rolling Stone Magazine added him on their hot list for "Hot Standup" and won the Jury Award for "Best Standup" for HBO's 2006 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. Ansari later toured with the Comedians of Comedy and the Flight of the Concords and in 2008, went on his own comedy tour titled "Glow in the Dark".
Now Ansari's special titled "Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening" is set for air on Comedy Central and his own Comedy Central DVD will be released and the first comedy DVD from the cable network to kick off 2010.
Ansari's comedy is quite different from other Comedy Central comedians in which we see the style of comedy shown from his characters are similar what you see on stage. What I mean by that is, Ansari is cool. He has this street like humor mixed in with this Gen Y style of comedy in which Ansari will joke about Craigslist, Facebook, gay rights, Cold Stone Creamery and his associate with friends such as Kanye West and R. Kelly.
Ansari talks about going on his young cousin Harris's Facebook page and messing around with comments and screwing with him on his message board, to interviewers who ask him questions about his feeling towards "Slumdog Millionaire", especially when he's born in South Carolina.Read more ›

I thought this was hilarious. I'm surprised by some of the lukewarm reviews. There is a slightly nerdy element to his humor, perhaps that is why, but he is hilarious, and it is... Read morePublished 10 months ago by philly
