Review of Aziz Ansari: Right Now

as the a.v. club put it, "ansari seems content to hold up a mirror to everyone but himself" i feel mixed about this special. some of ansari's jokes and observations about culture and society in 2019 are dead on and quite funny. however, more often than not the material feels overly rehearsed and lacks depth or any real introspection. his apology at the start feels so practiced and forced it's almost as if the bodies illuminated at the backstage door behind him (deliberately odd framing?) are executives feeding him the lines he must deliver in order to legitimise his stage time. this feeling is only reinforced when a lot of the subsequent material mocks any and everyone who buys into any kind of progressive change. a lot of "i'm sorry you feel that way" that as i said, sometimes hits and other times just feels tired and glaringly hypocritical. ansari spends a significant amount of time talking about how a lot of media does not age well in the face of such a rapidly shifting cultural climate - and he's not wrong. a lot of what's on show here feels like it's already dated or rapidly approaching irrelevance.
