The comedian, who stopped in Phoenix during his Buried Alive tour in 2013, returns to the Valley of the Sun with two sets on Friday, January 9, at Celebrity Theatre.
That's just a handful of days before the première of Parks and Rec's final season on January 13; the app to the TV show's zert, if you will.
Tickets to Ansari's Phoenix shows at 7 and 9:30 p.m. on are $45 and available via azizansari.com/tour. In the immortal words of Tom Haverford, treat yo self.
