Aziz and Friends
With an increasing number of stand-up specials made especially for its roster (over 200 can be found on-site already), it makes sense that streaming heavyweight Netflix is taking its golden comedy formula to the stage. Finally taking place from April 28 to May 8, the first-ever Netflix Is A Joke Fest is set to leave LA in stitches, featuring the biggest and brightest established comics, as well as up-and-coming performers that are just itching to be discovered by new fans. May 1 at the Orpheum Theater sees Parks and Rec and Master of None star Aziz Ansari take to the stage, with a host of comedy pals.
Whilst it might have been as the materialistic with-a-heart-of-gold Tom Haverford that Ansari gained notice, it was his show for Netflix; Master of None that really set him up as one to watch. Following a period out of the public eye, he'll be back on our screens with newest Netflix special - Nightclub Comedian.
