Comedian Aziz Ansari has revealed that he will release his new stand-up comedy special, Buried Alive, through Netflix on November 1.
Announced via a new interview with the New York Times, Ansari is the latest of a growing number of comedians to partner with Netflix. The release will be Ansari’s second hour of comedy in two years, following his self-released 2012 special, Dangerously Delicious, (which is currently available on Netflix).
Netflix CEO Reed Hasting’s spoke about the decision to expand its comedy specials and documentaries by saying the service has “become a big destination for fans of these much loved and often underdistributed genres.”
In the interview, Aziz spoke about the accessibility of Netflix and how the online video service “seems like it’s the closest delivery service of media we have that actually matches up to our preferences and expectations.”
