Program Council announced on its Facebook page Wednesday morning that Aziz Ansari, famous comedian and beloved character “Tom Haverford” of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, will be coming to Macky Auditorium on May 8.
Ansari strikes a delicate balance between sad-sack, self-depreciating humor and a can’t-help-but-love-him narcissism. Recently, Ansari was named “the funniest man under 30” by Rolling Stone Magazine and one of the “Top 10 Comedians of the Decade” according to Paste Magazine. Ansari recently released a two-hour comedy special, “Dangerously Delicious,” for only $5 on his website, following many other comedians in cutting out the middle man and putting his comedy directly in the hands of his fans.
The stop on campus is a part of his “Buried Alive” tour that begins in April. The show is scheduled for May 8. Tickets are on sale now, and you can get them here. Student tickets are going for $25, with public tickets at $35.
