Aziz Ansari: Right Now

Aziz Ansari: Right Now ★★★★½

The talented Aziz is very funny here, as per usual. He also gives a good faith take on "progressives", making criticisms while simultaneously being good-spirited about it, which I really respected. It's nice to hear someone point out some of the pros and cons of "progressives" without sounding like a weird, aggressive cult member.

I enjoyed this as much as I expected to, but it was definitely NOT predictable - there are some very interesting twists and observances, things that I did not expect at all.

As for the direction of Spike Jonze, one wouldn't expect him to put too much of a personal imprint on a stand-up comedy video, and yet he does, creating a refreshingly intimate visual that goes hand-in-glove with Ansari's warm, personable act.

So, yep, very interesting and very funny; I totally recommend you watch this on Netflix if you're able to.
