Aziz Ansari sees M.I.A. | M.I.A. doesn’t see Aziz
The M.I.A. show was apparently packed with celebrities last night. In addition to David Byrne (who was deciding if M.I.A. should perform or not), NYC comedian Aziz Ansari was also in the house.
"At one point in the show, I go to use the bathroom. During this part of the show, M.I.A. tells her DJ to stop the current track mid-song. Bewildered, the DJ does. M.I.A. takes the mic and says, "Is comedian Aziz Ansari here tonight?" Someone in the crowd yells, "Who is that?" M.I.A. responds, "I'm talking about Aziz Ansari, the guy that hosts Crash Test, the new weekly standup show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Mondays at 11.""
Aziz also likes Nine Inch Nails and Beck.
