Aziz Ansari launches Glow in the Dark tour
If the name "Aziz Ansari" only faintly rings a bell, that's about to change. The Human Giant co-creater and star reprises his role in Flight of the Conchords with the second season, coming Jan. 2009 (he plays a racist fruit vendor who can't tell New Zealanders from Australians, for the uninitiated). He's soon joining the Judd Apatow comedy machine, appearing in Funny People, Observe and Report with Seth Rogen and I Love You, Man with Paul Rudd. He's starring in the upcoming sitcom from the writers of The Office with an SNL-departed Amy Poehler. And come this Fall/Winter, he's taking it on the road: his "Glow in the Dark" tour will pass through eight states before ending with a three-day stint at San Francisco's Punch Line Comedy Club.
Watch "Clell Tickle: Indie Marketing Guru," which (like much of Ansari's comedy) points at hilarious excesses in the music industry:
