Buried Alive

Aziz Ansari’s first two stand-up specials—Intimate Moments For A Sensual Evening and Dangerously Delicious—offered carefully constructed hours of seemingly casual jokes, including already-classic bits about R. Kelly and an alter-ego (Raaaaaaaandy) that nearly became a star in his own right. For his third major touring cycle, titled Buried Alive, Ansari got the slightest bit more serious, tackling a lot of material about finding love in the age of texting. (He gave us an incredible interview about love and relationships earlier this year, and and he’s also working on a book about it.) The upcoming Buried Alive special will debut exclusively on Netflix on November 1—apparently the network (?) is living up to its promise to deliver more original comedy. Ansari and Seth Rogen star in this new promo spot for the special, which posits possible sponsors for Buried Alive before settling on the friendly red envelope.
