Aziz Ansari is doing 3 surprise shows at Zanies tonight

Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari is performing three surprise shows tonight at Zanies. Ansari's unexpected Thursday appearance, announced late Wednesday on Twitter and other social media platforms, definitely has the feel of a exclusive pop-up show. 

This last-minute booking is, most probably, Ansari's crafty way of working out new show material for the upcoming and highly anticipated Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, which starts its tour next week in Missouri with Ansari and Amy Schumer headlining. Big comedy stars choosing smaller venues to tighten material is not uncommon, and Zanies is a great venue for such. The legendary yet intimate comedy club is finely tuned for a big stars like Ansari to hone their craft.

Tonight's shows will be at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm and have already sold out.
