Tuesday, April 10Aziz Ansari's Buried Alive Tour

7 p.m.

UCF Arena

4000 Central Florida Blvd.



Whether you know him from his small role as a xenophobe fruit vendor on the HBO series Flight of the Conchords or as the popular ladies man Tom Haverford on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, get ready, because as part of his Buried Alive Tour, stand-up comedian Aziz Ansari is making his way to the UCF Arena next Tuesday, April 10.

Ansari just released his latest standup special, Dangerously Delicious, through his website (and has been promoting it on his Twitter account @azizansari). It is available for $5 on his website.

(Check out a preview here.)

For Ansari's Orlando show next week, fans can expect the jokester to cover topics like pop culture, everyday life and share stories about his cousins Harris and Darwish, who have now become household names.

Maybe if Ansari is lucky, UCF President John C. Hitt will give him a key to the UCF Arena to go along with the one he received two days ago – a key to a lawnmower for helping out with Central Park Conservatory’s “first mow” of Sheep Meadow before it reopens to the public this weekend.
