Sharp, poignant and hilarious - Aziz is better than ever
9 July 2019 | by anthony_harvey88See all my reviews

This was simply brilliant by Ansari. I've watched a few of his older stand-up specials and although they were on some parts "laugh out loud funny" - I also found them quite uneven in the material and the overall construction of an hour set.

Following his unfortunate and quite unfairly involvement in the #metoo allegations this special comes naturally with a sense of "elephant in the room" feeling. Aziz spares no time addressing it and gives an honest and heartfelt view of the situation that in payback set's up a deeper connection with the audience and provides an environment where he can perform his material with no restrictions.

Considering he's the main star of his great Netflix show "Master of None", it becomes an obviously ironic truth that's he's in real life actually now a "Master of his Craft". His social criticism ares as sharp and up to date as few other comedians manages and the way he transitions between the jokes and the more personal insights are really...well admirable actually.

If you enjoy stand up comedy, then this is a must watch! 10/10
