Aziz Ansari: Right Now

Critics Consensus

Aziz Ansari balances sharp social commentary with just enough earnest introspection to craft a special that, while not without its baggage, shows how far the comedian has come - and how far he may still have to go.

  • In Right Now, Ansari is a fitting ambassador for a certain bourgeois ambivalence.

  • The jokes here are by turns extremely earnest and extremely cynical, and there is insight buzzing in the messy mergers of the two.

  • By framing the new special around his personal story, and also trimming and refining some weak spots, his act now coheres, taking on a new force and clarity, one that represents his finest, boldest and probably most polarizing work.

  • [T]his is still the work of a comedy veteran who channels righteous fed-up-ness and critiques obliviousness with relatable flair.

  • Complaining about "wokeness" could easily come off as out of touch and cranky, but Ansari largely avoids that trap by cracking slyly scathing jokes.

  • Aziz Ansari feels guilty, grateful, angry, ashamed, bewildered and chastened. He's quite funny about some of these emotions. Not so funny about others.
