Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari coming to Keith-Albee

Mar. 31, 2013 @ 03:02 PM

HUNTINGTON — Comedian Aziz Ansari, who has been called the funniest man under 30 by Rolling Stone and the “Funniest Dude in Prime Time” by People Magazine, will appear at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 3.

His “Buried Alive” tour appearance is being presented by Upfront, Inc., and Marshall University’s Campus Activity Board.

Ansari is perhaps best known of late for his co-starring role opposite of Amy Poehler in the Emmy-nominated NBC series, “Parks and Recreation,” which is currently in its fifth season. The series received its first Emmy nomination in 2011 for “Outstanding Comedy Series.” Ansari’s portrayal of government employee “Tom Haverford” has earned him much critical praise including Entertainment Weekly naming him one of its “Breakout TV Stars,” TV Guide naming him a “Scene Stealer” and Yahoo! TV placing him in the number one spot on its list of “TV MVPS: The Most Valuable Performers of the Fall Season.”
