Aziz Ansari is THE Man!

Last night I scored tickets to see a last minute Aziz Ansari show at the Hollywood Improv. One word: hilarious!

He is my favorite comedian right now...by far. You can't help but crack up as soon as he opens his mouth. He doesn't even have to tell a joke and you just want to smile and giggle!

If you don't know who Ansari is, he's from Parks and Rec. SO excited it comes back next week. I thought it had been pulled! I highly recommend you watch the show if you've never seen it. It comes on after The Office and is really funny. It started off slow but picked up during the second season.

Anyways, back to the show! Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take any pictures so I can't show you anything from that night. But if you are interested here is a video showing off his comedic genius. I'll be the first to say, I am lazy when people post videos. 75% of the time I don't watch them. But seriously, this is worth watching.




A few years back I had see him perform stand up while recording the movie "Funny People". Along with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen, Ansari was in character as Raaaaaaaandy, with eight a's, and he blew me away. In my opinion he stole the show, outperforming Sandlar and Rogen. Check out the article in the New York Post where I am interviewed about my experience seeing the iconic stars do stand up for the movie. Yes, only a few of my quotes made it in, but I was quoted in the New York Post and that's ah-mazing!

Glad you had fun! I am not a fan of his, but I here the Improv is great place to see some funny acts. I'll have to make my way there one night.

He is absolutely hysterical! Okay, I'm like you with video clips, but I DID watch this one, and I laughed so hard! (Coop kept giving me dirty looks because I laughed so hard I woke him up from his millionth nap of the day).
Seriously, you're so lucky, girl! I'm glad you got to go :) xox

I remember thinking, “who is this guy?” when he hosted the MTV Awards. I’m so glad you had a good time. I’ve never seen a live comedy show before, but it sounds like a blast.

I did watch the video (b/c you posted it of course ;) He’s pretty funny!

Um, how cool is that that you got quoted in the New York Post. It has your name and everything. Love it! I’ve never seen Funny People. The trailer kind of left me feeling meh about it. Maybe I’ll check it out.

haha ok...so I have no idea why I have that color scheme happening in the purse post, so not intentional!

Girlllllll, thanks for stopping by my blog! And so far, I'm really like the Petsmart training classes. They're small and intimate feeling, which I love, and we totally lucked out and go the head trainer (like, the guy who trains all the OTHER trainers), so I feel really confident in his ability to lead us. Yay!

Good luck with Coco!! :)
