This latest Aziz Ansari tour is being dubbed the ‘Modern Romance Tour.’ This likely means the famous comedian will be covering a plethora of tropes of modern dating, which is not unlike a large portion of his past material. One of his most famous bits from his 2012 Buried Alive special involved the fallacies of texting and how silly the whole thing is, especially in the context of landing a date.
A large portion of his material covers modern dating. Ansari is a self-proclaimed bachelor who loves to revel in this freedom and external view he takes on the whole of dating. He even touches on the absurdity of marriage to the benefit of everyone.
This latest tour is very similar to his recent 2012 and 2013 Buried Alive tour.
Is there plan for a physical release of Aziz Ansari’s 2014 tour?
Aziz Ansari released a stand-up special audio/video following all his major tours. His debut, Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening, followed his Glow in the Dark Tour from 2009. The release is a mix between a specific venue and show, as well as a majority of the content from the respective tour with some additional content thrown in exclusively for the release.
There is no official confirmation that the Modern Romance Tour will be envisioned in a later audio or video format.
How long is an Aziz Ansari set?
Aziz Ansari keeps things quite brisk. His stand-up specials average about an hour, minus about 15 minutes. This keeps shows roughly 65 minutes long. His shows are usually only standup, with no video footage or other elements to change the pace.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Aziz Ansari’s tour?
Fortunately for fans, two major sources for presale tickets are servicing Aziz Ansari’s big 2014 tour. American Express has presales available through their presale service. An American Express card is required for purchase as well as an active account with TicketMaster.

Where else can I follow Aziz Ansari?
Ansari is a lead, and arguably funniest character in NBC’s cult comedy Parks and Recreation. The show is wrapping up its sixth season and has just been renewed for a seventh in March 2014. Ansari plays conceited and deluded pseudo playboy Tom Haverford, which is not entirely unlike his charismatic standup personality. Ansari talks a lot about acting and show business in his onstage bits, for he is a bit famous for playing a lot of small bit roles in big budget films as well as his odd relationship with hip-hop and pop musician Kanye West.
The comedian is also playing a small role in the upcoming high profile comedy, Date and Switch, which also features fellow Parks and Recreation cast member Nick Offerman.
“Buried Alive is 90 minutes of what almost seems like Ansari trying to justify his decision to enjoy his bachelorhood. He mixes sometimes faux-scientific research, personal experiences and audience experiences with entertaining and thought-provoking results. While this could have the risk of becoming too preachy, he never does. Instead, it’s clear that he doesn’t take his views too seriously and offers them up to the audience in a take-it-or-leave-it-but-please-enjoy-it manner. After watching the show again seven months later, I still find myself appreciating what I saw.” – G.B. of Aerogum
“The irony of Aziz Ansari’s current stand-up comedy is that it’s a long-form routine about dating in the era of the short attention span. His show at Wealthy Theatre Thursday night – the first of two sold-out performances – was an amusing, if not always uproarious, long-term essay on the topic. A good chunk of it singled out text messaging as an ineffective, if not downright useless, means of communicating with a potential romantic partner.” – John Serba of Massachusetts Live
“Though not explicitly stated, the title would seem to sum up Ansari’s attitude toward the state of matrimony, which he describes as “the most insane thing you could ever ask anyone to do.” His terror of the institution, which seems quite sincere, informs most of the material in this show. Most of his bugaboos – “things that people do that scare me” – are directly connected to commitment.” – David Hiltbrand of Philly Live
