The 25-year-old oddball comedian Aziz Ansari of Human Giant fame has come a long way since his days performing stand-up around town as an NYU student. He’s recently wrapped films Observe and Report with Seth Rogen and I Love You, Man with Paul Rudd, and he’ll be appearing this year in a new spin-off of The Office with Amy Poehler. Ansari, who now lives in L.A., returns to his roots of NYC stand-up with this two-night run of his Glow in the Dark Tour, in which he’s likely to riff on anything from growing up Indian-American to why he hates the ice cream “molesters” at Cold Stone Creamery.
