An­sari’s new spe­cial to de­but on web­site

The Washington Times Daily - - Television -

Aziz An­sari is bring­ing his new stand-up spe­cial straight to his fans. The “Parks and Re­cre­ation” star is by­pass­ing cable net­works to re­lease his lat­est com­edy spe­cial on his web­site.

The co­me­dian said his “Dan­ger­ously De­li­cious” stand-up spe­cial would be avail­able on­line world­wide for $5 be­gin­ning Tues­day. Fans can down­load or stream the 60minute show with­out com­mer­cials or re­stric­tions.

Mr. An­sari said he was in­spired by the pop­u­lar­ity of his com­edy clips on Youtube and by the suc­cess of fel­low comic Louis C.K., who sold his “Live at the Bea­con The­ater” on­line in De­cem­ber and brought in more than $1 mil­lion.

Mr. An­sari has pro­moted his ap­pear­ances to his 1.7 mil­lion fol­low­ers on Twit­ter and planned to use the site to spread the word about his new spe­cial.
