Without any warning, Aziz Ansari has released his newest stand-up special Dangerously Delicious— independently, through his website and for only $5. Once you lay your money down, you have the option to download the special or simply stream it. In other words, he Louis C.K.’ed it.
At about 6:30 am EST, Asnari tweeted out, “Go to azizansari.com & download my new standup special before everyone wakes up for only $5!” Ansari is also offering a preview, which is intro’d with a message from the comedian, himself. You can check it out below.
At the end of last year, C.K. released Live at the Beacon the same way, quickly taking in more than 1$ million in profits. A few weeks ago, Jim Gaffigan, citing C.K.’s process, announced he’ll be doing the same. Gaffigan’s special Mr. Universe will be available April 11.
