Aziz Ansari Announces First Official Show In NYC Following Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Aziz Ansari is set to return to the stage in New York City. It was on Tuesday that Ansari took to social media to reveal that he would be taking part in a “small last minute gig.” While the exact time and location have not been revealed, fans are able to sign up for a chance to buy tickets to the show.
It will mark Ansari’s first show in the city, just over a year after the original publication of an article in which a photographer alleged that Ansari assaulted her on a date by ignoring her cues to end their sexual encounter. Ansari would respond by stating that it, “by all indications was completely consensual.”
Back in November, Ansari announced a 28-date Road To Nowhere tour that will take him across various cities in the United States and Europe this year. So far, most of the dates have sold out, including four of the five back-to-back shows that Ansari has lined up at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre this month, He’ll also be hitting up Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis, Dublin, and London among other cities for a treak that will end in June in Paris.
So far, Ansari’s allegations have remained at the same stage, with no legal or civil action being taken since the story was published.
