TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT!
Comedian/actor, Aziz Ansari, comes to City Opera House for two nights - Tuesday, September 3rd and Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 at 7 pm. Most known for his role in the beloved Emmy-nominated NBC series Parks and Recreation which recently began production on its sixth season, Ansari co-stars opposite Amy Poehler. Ansari’s portrayal of government employee ‘Tom Haverford’ has earned critical praise including Entertainment Weekly naming him one of their “Breakout TV Stars,” TV Guide naming him a “Scene Stealer” and People Magazine naming him 2011’s “Funniest Dude in Prime Time.”
Aziz Ansari is one of the biggest stars in the comedy world. Rolling Stone put him on the cover of their special comedy issue labeling him “the funniest man under 30.” and The Hollywood Reporter said that he “has become one of the most prolific writers and performers on the comedy scene in recent years.”
Ansari has also kept busy in the film world. His voice was featured in the Twentieth Century Fox animated hit film Epic, and he appeared in This Is The End opposite Seth Rogen and James Franco. He was previously seen starring in the action comedy 30 Minutes or Less opposite Jesse Eisenberg and Danny McBride and Universal’s Funny People. Additional film credits include Get Him to the Greek, I Love You, Man, Observe and Report, and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Ansari's stand up work has been unparalleled over the past few years. His second hour-long stand-up special “Dangerously Delicious” was self-released online through AzizAnsari.com for $5. In 2010, he had an hour-long standup special on Comedy Central titled “Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening.” The special and subsequent DVD/CD were both extremely successful and both albums continue to be a mainstay on iTunes’ comedy best-seller list.
This Live at the Opera House performance is presented by City Opera House and KB Productions. Media support is generously provided by 106 KHQ AND TV 7&4. This is an all-ages show.
