Aziz Ansari announced a 2019 North American comedy tour.

This will be his first outing since a sexual misconduct allegation against the comedian surfaced earlier this year. In an anonymous post on Babe.net, a woman who used the pseudonym "Grace" detailed her encounter with the Master of None star in his apartment where he disregarded her signals and allegedly forced himself on her. At the time, Ansari released this statement in response to the January story: “It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.”

Now, Ansari is making his return with new Return to Nowhere Tour dates, announced via Instagram. The North American shows will kick off in Boston on Feb. 6 and wrap up in New York City in May. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon ET on Ansari's official website.
