Aziz Ansari's comedy career is growing faster than the sinkhole that swallowed him in 'This Is the End'
On the evening of May 5, Aziz Ansari sits in a tiny dressing room backstage at Boston's Wilbur Theatre, about to perform his new stand-up show, Modern Romance, before a sold-out house of 1,200. "This is the 10th show here at the same venue, and it's cool but it gets a little repetitive," says the 31-year-old Ansari, who's wearing a burgundy velvet jacket and black everything else. "It's kind of nice to travel and do different venues. Each theater has a different vibe, like you wouldn't think, 'Oh, Springfield, Mass.!' But it was a beautiful, really nice 3,000-seat theater.
