Aziz stand up special drops in January
The official disc cover to Aziz Ansari's stand-up special, Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening. The special will both air on Comedy Central and be available in stores in mid-January.
Aziz Ansari’s stand-up special, Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening — which was filmed this summer in Los Angeles — will air on Comedy Central on January 17, 2010. The CD/DVD will then hit stores two days later.
In an interview, Aziz told Entertainment Weekly that “to have an hour special is really cool”:
It’s bigger than the time I filled up my Quiznos Q Rewards Card, but smaller than the time I filled up four Quiznos Q Rewards Cards.
On the whole, Aziz said filming went surprisingly well:
The crowd gave me a standing ovation after every single joke—there are 53 standing ovations. It’s a little distracting, and some people might say, “Wait a second, it looks like it was edited to look like there were 53 standing ovations,” but that’s not the case. Those were all genuine. I know people are thinking, “But there are so many great specials and that’s never happened before.” Well, I don’t know what to tell you. The material was that strong, and that’s the way those people felt they had to respond—by standing up in the exact same fashion for the exact amount of time, 53 times.
