I saw Aziz Ansari live last night, with Matteo Lane and Phil Hanley opening. All three were very good. Ansari's set focuses heavily on grappling with wokeness and how it can tilt over into virtue signaling. He also had a good bit about kind of the fake news trend. Out of respect for the art I won't go into detail, but I do appreciate his grappling with the fact there are no easy answers in balancing things. The material seems fresh and maleable, referencing the R. Kelly and Michael Jackson documentaries. He does contemplate his own moment in the #metoo movement in a more serious moment, which probably was necessary having done sections on other these other celebrity reckonings. I do feel like the combination of his faltering not being as horrible or systematic (more fraught interpersonal relationship moment than predator), and his more humbled response should lead to him being granted forgiveness and the opportunity to remain in the privileged position of public figure.
