World renown Stand-up comedian, Aziz Ansari’s performance is right around the corner! The star of “Parks and Recreation,” is making a stop at CSUSB for his “Buried Alive” Tour on Saturday, November 3rd at 8 p.m. in the Coussoulis Arena.
The critically acclaimed Ansari has been featured in many box office films such as, “30 Minutes or Less,” “Get Him to the Greek,” and even co-starred in “Funny People,” with Adam Sandler.
Ansari was born in Columbia, South Carolina into a Muslim family from India. He started his comedic career performing shows at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre where he was recognized by Rolling Stone. Soon after, Ansari became a hot commodity for his original comical style and down-right silly humor.
The comedian’s material mainly focuses on personal experiences and real life issues. In his recent interview with Pitchfork, Ansari confesses the underlying inspiration of the tour. “On my new tour, I talk about three things: babies, marriage, and how hard it is to find someone. I could talk about those topics forever– the easiest writing happens when you have a genuine passion for the material, or it evokes an emotion: anger, fear, whatever. This tour is driven mostly by fear: I’m 29 now, am I really ready to get married and have a kid? I don’t think so,” Said Ansari.
Ansari has been making people laugh since 2007 and he’s not afraid to admit that he’s changed since then. But what Ansari is sure to stand by is that there is always room to master his craft.
Later on in the interview Ansari expressed how much his career means to him. “With stand-up it’s like: That’s all me. That’s something that I thought was funny, that I developed myself. No one can really tell me anything about it,” said Ansari.
Since his stamp was imprinted on the laughing world Ansari has made appearances on TV, award shows, movies and comedy tours. Ansari’s jokes are also being told through cyberspace on his Twitter and Tumblr pages.
We cannot wait for the 3rd to get here! As soon as Ansari hits the stage laughs are sure to make their way.
