It was brown night on Comedy Central a couple of weekends ago after the Golden Globes. I had intended to watch Aziz Ansari’s special, but ended up watching the Golden Globes. Which was a mistake.
So in the process of trying to stay awake for the repeat at 1am, I ended up watching Russell Peters’ special Red, White and Brown. In the past I found his comedy about racial and ethnic stereotypes a bit over the top, but this particular special manages to find the right balance.
Of course, I fell asleep after that so I have yet to watch Ansari’s Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening. It’s at the top of my Netflix queue. With a long wait. Which is a good sign.
And if you’re not familiar with Ansari:
