  • Aziz Ansari is testing out new material, offering ‘Work In Progress’ lottery for tickets

    Aziz Ansari - Work in ProgressAziz Ansari is currently working on new material for his next hour of stand-up comedy and is looking for specific audiences to get the best material possible. The comedian says that reactions to his comedy vary among different groups of people. What might be a hit for single men from 18-25, might be offensive to single men over 35, or married people over 40. This is where Ansari got the idea to host small shows with specific audiences so he can test what appeals to one certain group at a time.

    Tickets to two shows he’s putting on this Tuesday (6/11) are $10 and will be lottery based. Ansari also alluded that there would be more shows/tickets available in the very near future so keep checking the site daily or stalk him on Twitter for updates. Also, there is no way to scalp or lie about your age to get in because everyone’s name will be put on a list and a valid ID needs to be presented at the door for admittance. Enter here for the ticket lottery for you and a guest in New York City on June 11 at 7pm. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 pm the night before and venue information will be e-mailed to all lottery winners.
