Aziz Ansari

Aziz Ansari + VHX

Yesterday, Aziz Ansari launched a new website touting his latest comedy special, Dangerously Delicious. It costs $5 and the funds go straight to Aziz; no middleman distributor or additional hands in the pocket of the artist. You may recall Louis CK doing this first (and Jim Gaffigan planning it for April). It's a trend that's worth repeating. You can watch a preview of the special but if you like Aziz, it's a safe bet that it will be five bucks well spent.

So why is this important to me beyond the comedy special itself? Well, I designed the whole thing in collaboration with VHX and Aziz's people. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and couldn't be more excited to see the VHX Artists platform (an empowerment tool to sell video directly to fans) make its with someone so worthwhile. Read more about the whole thing right here.

Long story short, Aziz Ansari has a new special you should go buy. Not only because Aziz is great but because it will prove the undertaking by myself and VHX is something worth growing.

  • Bryan, I never met him. I doubt he even knows I exist. The guys at VHX hit me up to help them design the site and we worked together to create the site. All communication with Aziz was removed from my realm of being.. but that doesn't make me any less proud to have worked on it!

  • I was just checking this out yesterday & noticed that it had a certain sexiness to it... Nice work!

  • This is amazing on so many levels. Love VHX's approach for artists to give them all the tools to make this happen for the artist and their fans.

  • Aziz totally knows you exist. He's probably already seen this post.

  • I have tickets to his show here in Toronto this summer. Is it the same show on the download? If I download it will I just end up seeing the same show I saw in the theatre in a few months? This is what happened with the Louis CK show but I didn't mind since I'd already seen it live. I'd hate to watch the video first and THEN see it live.

  • @Della, the video and his current tour are 100% different material. You'll get two different shows!!

  • Sweet. I'm in! It'll be an appetizer for the big show this sumer. Thanks for sharing.
