In 2012, when we interviewed Aziz Ansari for a cover story, he told us about some material he was developing at the time, and how it addressed dealing with your friends all growing up and having kids. "Why would anyone get married and have babies?" he explained. "That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard in my life. Or the scariest thing I've ever heard in my life." (Too true, man. Too true.)
But it proved to be good comic fodder: That material became the basis for Ansari's latest stand-up special, Buried Alive, which will be released on Netflix on November 1. You can check out a trailer for the special below; it stars Ansari and Seth Rogen, and they discuss the best way to promote his new material. (It involves snack foods and a "Pillsbury toaster tablet.")
