Rambunctious comic Aziz Ansari announced a series of "intimate" gigs, including one in NYC on July 31. The Parks and Rec star is prepping material for a new stand-up show, and wants to practice for certain demographics only. Huh? That means when you enter to win your cheapie tickets via lottery, you'll be asked to answer a few questions about yourself.

In addition to avoiding scalped tickets and long lines with the lottery system, Ansari is looking to have an interesting mix of people at this show—single and married, old and young—because of the different ways they react to his jokes. We're happy to participate in a funnyman focus group, especially since tickets are only $10. The venue hasn't been announced yet, but the show will go down on July 31. Go here to enter for tickets.
