Comedian Aziz Ansari hosts two comedy shows

Actor-comedian Aziz Ansari is bringing his “Modern Romance” comedy tour to River Rock Show Theatre Saturday, March 29, for two sold-out shows.

The popular, young comic began performing stand-up in 2000. He later became known to TV audiences in 2007 when he created and starred on MTV’s sketch comedy series, Human Giant. He then went on to memorable guest-starring roles on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and NBC’s Scrubs.

His first stand-up special, Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening aired on Comedy Central in 2010 followed by Dangerously Delicious in 2012.

Today he can be seen starring as the self-serving Tom Haverford opposite Amy Poehler on NBC’s sitcom Parks and Recreation, which is now in its sixth season.

Ansari will be on stage at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
