Ansari’s career slowed after his sexual misconduct allegations arose. It seems that he is just now gaining momentum to pick up where he left off. If you saw the latest season of Master of None, you may have noticed that Ansari had a cameo in it. Lena Waithe’s storyline was the main focus. Prior to that, fans of Ansari hadn’t seen the comedian since his 2019 Netflix standup special. His upcoming special Aziz Ansari: Nightclub Comedian is said to be “an intimate surprise gig” in New York City. The decorated performer has two Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award to his name. He earned a Grammy nomination for his standup special Aziz Ansari: Right Now. The Parks and Recreation alum has acquired a strong fanbase has had a successful career. Hopefully, his upcoming Netflix standup special signifies seeing more of the comedian.
The comedian has never been one to hold back words, so fans may get an update on where and what he’s been up to. Aziz Ansari: Nightclub Comedian will be available on Netflix.
