Matthew goes to Aziz’s standup show
I saw Aziz Ansari on November 13 at the Triple Door in Seattle. I’ve been a fan of his since seeing season one and two of “Human Giant,” a critically acclaimed sketch comedy show on MTV featuring Aziz, Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer.
I have also seen Aziz appear on “Flight of the Conchords” and “Worst Week.” When I heard that he would be appearing on the upcoming Amy Poehler project, it immediately became the show that I was looking forward to the most since I heard Steve Carell would be heading a certain new show called “The Office” …
Whether it was his retelling of his conversation with Kanye West, or his inappropriate way of supporting of gay rights, Aziz had the Seattle crowd laughing the entire time he was on stage.
Afterwards, Aziz hung out and signed DVDs and t-shirts. I asked him when shooting begins for “The Office” spinoff and he said February and that it should begin airing in April. I hope to see Aziz the next time he tours.
He’s the kind of guy that would have gone to the Convention in Scranton if he was a member of the cast. No big ego — even though he should have one. Genuinely thankful for people coming out to support him.
If you get a chance to see him on his current tour, please do. If you love “The Office” as much as I do, then I would personally offer a money back guarantee for his standup show.
