Aziz Ansari: Right Now

Aziz Ansari: Right Now ★★★½

There’s something obligatory about the way Ansari addresses the 2018 sexual misconduct allegations against him at the top of this. But once he gets going and dives into new material, there are glimpses of a man genuinely reckoning with his former self. (And the way he interweaves this with the national reckoning we’re undergoing is pretty brilliant.) There are many reasons to take his performance with a grain of salt - including the perspective of the woman involved in that 2018 encounter - but as a work of potentially confessional performance art, this is worth considering.
