Preview: Aziz Ansari: Buried Alive

Love, Marriage and Molestation on Aziz's Netflix Standup
Rolling Stone

Buried Alive (Netflix) - The Parks and Recreation star recently turned 30, and on his new special Buried Alive, he turns his comedic lens on deeper subjects, like love, relationships, marriage and parenting. Gone are the ho-hum observations on life; while continuing to deliver hour-plus sets full of punchlines, it feels more like social commentary rather than commentary on what it's like to be social.

But old Aziz fans shouldn't fret – he still manges to slip in jokes about his younger self being molested and the notion of Xzibit raising a busload of babies.
