For Immediate ReleaseTue, Nov 27, 2018
RENO, Nev. (Nov. 27, 2018) — Winner of the 2017 Golden Globe Award™ for “Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy” Aziz Ansari stars in, writes and directs “Master of None,” a Netflix original comedy series that he co-created with Alan Yang (“Parks and Recreation.”) In 2015, he became one of the only headlining comedians ever to sell out Madison Square Garden in New York and now will do the same in Reno at the Reno Ballroom on Friday, March 22. Presented by THE ROW.
Ansari’s accolades for “Master of None” spans beyond his Golden Globe Award™ to also include the 2016 and 2017 Emmy Awards™ for “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series” and five additional nominations including “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series,” “Outstanding Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.” The show was one of AFI’s “Top Television Programs of the Year” in 2015 and 2017 and won the 2015 Peabody Award™ and 2016 Critics’ Choice Award™ for “Best Comedy Series.”
On television, Ansari co-starred opposite Amy Poehler in the beloved NBC series “Parks and Recreation” for the show’s entire seven season run. His portrayal of government employee Tom Haverford earned him critical praise as one of the show’s breakout stars and garnered him nominations for an American Comedy Award™ and a NAACP Image Award™. In 2015, Ansari released “Modern Romance,” a book that focuses on modern dating and how the basic issues facing a single person – whom we meet, how we meet them and what happens next – have been radically altered by new technologies. The book debuted at #2 on the New York Times Best Seller List.
On the big screen, Ansari has appeared in “This is the End,” “Funny People” “30 Minutes or Less,” “Get Him to the Greek,” “I Love You, Man” and “Observe and Report.”
Tickets will go on sale Friday, Nov. 30 starting at $69.95 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 775-325-7401.
