Tickets for Aziz Ansari's show go on sale March 2.

Fully recovered from that racist fruit vendor incident, and even 30 Minutes or Less, comedian Aziz Ansari brings his “Buried Alive” tour to the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts on July 19.

Before becoming a breakout star on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, Ansari won over hipsters on the MTV sketch show Human Giant and with his guest spot on Flight of the Conchords, as the vendor who wouldn’t sell an apple to a Kiwi. Since then, his standup gigs and film and TV roles have won him the cover of Rolling Stone’s comedy issue and Paste Magazine’s declaration of his place as one of the top 10 comedians of the decade.

Ansari got a rep for stealing scenes after playing “Raaaaaandy” in Judd Apatow’s Funny People, later appearing in Get Him to the Greek, I Love You, Man and Observe and Report. His first starring movie role, however, alongside Jesse Eisenberg in 30 Minutes or Less, didn’t go so well; the comedy flopped. But between comedy specials, new films in development, and hosting gigs like the MTV Movie Awards, he’s had plenty to fall back on. He’s also pretty much the funniest guy on Twitter—his extended in-flight fantasy about the whole plane rocking out to Jay-Z and Kanye was maybe the best thing ever parceled out 140 characters at a time.

Ansari also performs at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco on July 20. Tickets for both show are $39 and go on sale March 2 at 10am at Ticketmaster.
