Aziz Ansari has announced he is heading to New Zealand for his first-ever stand up show on our shores.

The US comedian-actor will perform at Auckland's SkyCity Theatre on Wednesday, June 5 - just two weeks from now.

The Auckland show is part of the final run of the Parks and Recreation and Master of None star's internationally sold-out Road to Nowhere tour, which has earned rave reviews around the world.

The Guardian called Ansari "excellent", saying he "needles again and again at contemporary culture's rawest nerves".
