Aziz Ansari at South Beach Comedy Festival Discusses Real Thoughts on Marriage
Ansari's standup delves into the mundane and expected parts of everyday life. In particular, he talks about how much he hates marriage and just can't seem to understand why people would ruin their lives with the beauty of childbirth.
"Aziz, I'm having a baby," he explained that one of his friends told him in a phone call.
"Well, why the hell would you want to do that?"
Like any good comedian, Aziz taunted the audience members by demanding to know how couples met, how long they knew each other before getting married, and particularly whether they met through dating websites.
Why? Because as it turns out, a man looking for love doesn't need more requirements than "Jewish and in my zip code."
The only disappointing part of Saturday's show was the crowd. It turns out that Miamians are horrible hecklers. "I love you" and "Cocaine!" are not acceptable things to yell to a 28-year-old man at the peak of his career. "I have 12 hookers and a gallon of tequila at the W Hotel" might have been more appropriate.
The crowd: Young adult meatheads and hipsters. In fact, the entire cast of the Jersey Shore might have been there.
By the way: Aziz Ansari has successfully made me question my entire future. He's only slightly older than I am and probably sleeps on beds of cash of every night. If only I could be so lucky.
