Now that Parks and Recreation is a thing of the past, comedian Aziz Ansari is shifting his focus onto his new and upcoming projects. His second Netflix stand-up comedy special, Aziz Ansari: Live at Madison Square Garden premieres this Friday. And his upcoming book, Modern Romance due out June 16th, is an academic study of modern romance peppered with his brand of humor.
While most every other comedian including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is writing a memoir, Ansari decided he’d team up with a sociologist to conduct studies on love in the age of technology for his first title. Ansari did a lot of research for Modern Romance last summer, going as far as inviting certain ages/demos out to shows specifically to see how they responded to certain jokes about relationships. Anzari recently revealed his book cover which you can pre-order now.
