Star of American sitcom “Parks and Recreation” and Netflix’s “Master of None”, American comedian, writer, producer and Golden Globe Award winning actor AZIZ ANSARI is performing his internationally sold out show “AZIZ ANSARI: ROAD TO NOWHERE” - his first Australian stand up dates since 2012.
“These are excellent routines, as Ansari needles again and again at contemporary culture’s rawest nerves.” – The Guardian, USA
“… expectedly hilarious yet surprisingly perceptive show.” – Chicago Tribune, USA
Aziz stars in, writes, and directs MASTER OF NONE, a Netflix original comedy series that he co-created with Alan Yang (PARKS AND RECREATION). Now in its second season, Aziz won the 2016 and 2017 Emmy Award for “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series” and has received five additional nominations for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series” (2016 and 2017), “Outstanding Comedy Series” (2016 and 2017), and “Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series” (2016). He won the 2017 Golden Globe Award for “Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy” and the show was nominated in 2016 and 2017 for “Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy”.
In 2015, Aziz became one of the only headlining comedians ever to sell out Madison Square Garden in New York. His two sold-out performances at the legendary arena were filmed for his fourth comedy special, AZIZ ANSARI: LIVE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, which was released on Netflix in March 2015. On television, Aziz co-starred opposite Amy Poehler in the beloved NBC series PARKS AND RECREATION for the show’s entire seven season run. Aziz’s portrayal of government employee ‘Tom Haverford’ earned him critical praise as one of the show’s breakout stars and garnered him nominations for an American Comedy Award for “Best Comedy Supporting Actor – TV” and a NAACP Image Award for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” in 2014.
