Nightclub Comedian: Netflix

Netflix’s standup special features comedian Aziz Ansari where he talks about living with the pandemic in the last two years instead of taking potshots at the celebrities, that he usually does in his standup specials. Reviewing the show, Rohan Naahar wrote, “Intimate and lowkey, the surprise Netflix standup special continues the star comedian’s dramatic evolution.”
