Aziz Ansari's Modern Romance Tour in San Francisco This Week

Known to many as Tom Haverford - the character he's played for the past five years on television's Parks and Recreation - prolific actor/comedian Aziz Ansari has a lot going on in addition to his hilarious role in that popular NBC sitcom, between acting gigs, writing a book, and of course his active stand-up career. He's landed acting roles in numerous other TV shows and movies including the recently released film Date and Switch. Meanwhile his busy stand up shows have yielded releases including last year's Dangerously Delicious CD (see clip above from this 2010/11 tour of the same name) and 2010's Intimate Moments For A Sensual album- both released by Comedy Central. And likely his current stand up tour, entitled Modern Romance: A New Comedy Tour, will be released as an album and DVD too.

The Modern Romance tour which stops at such large theater scale venues as Seattle's Moore Theater tonight (March 31st) and at San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall, where he will do five shows this week: April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, includes lots of bits on relationships  in this Digital age. Hence Ansari tackles topics such as texting, Twitter, and Instagram and their role in the dating game - namely the less than dignified ways people relate to one another these days. Coincidentally these same subjects are tackled in that book he's working on. On one recent show stop of this tour the 31 year old comedian called today's dating age group part of the "rudest, flakiest generation ever" and went on to hilariously cite numerous incidents of where, despite more communication tools at our disposal, that this current generation is far from adept at communicating. Buy tickets here for this week's Davies Symphony Hall shows: Tuesday at 7pm, Weds at 7pm & 10pm, and Thurs at 7pm & 10pm.
