Aziz Ansari is dipping his toe back into the public eye.
The “Master of None” star performed a series of standup routines over the weekend in Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin. He also recently performed in New York and Philadelphia.

These shows mark the first time Ansari has stepped into the spotlight following a brief appearance in May. All of this comes in the aftermath of the sexual misconduct accusations made against him in a story from Babe.net. The story has since largely been dismissed by the public as a “bad date”, not sexual assault.
Vulture reporter Ryan Glasspiegel was in attendance for Ansari’s Milwaukee show and gave his take on the atmosphere on the stage and in the crowd. “If you didn’t know about the controversy, you wouldn’t have realized that this was the beginning stage of Ansari’s re-emergence from it,” Glasspiegel wrote.

“My sense during the show was that the crowd was aware of the saga but not judgmental about it. A woman sitting in front of me told me she saw it as ‘very low on the scale of “bad date” to “Harvey Weinstein”.'”
Netflix has recently expressed interest in producing another season of “Master of None” should Ansari approach online network.
