Aziz Ansari announces UK and Ireland shows for 2019

He's heading back to London, Dublin and Manchester

Aziz Ansari has announced his first major UK and Ireland shows since facing sexual misconduct allegations last year.

The Master of None comedian will bring the ‘Road to Nowhere’ tour to the UK for three dates in April – including appearances at London’s iconic Eventim Apollo and Royal Albert Hall.

You can check the dates in full below and buy tickets here from 10am on Friday January 18.

31 – Dublin Vicar Street

1 — Manchester Apollo
3 — London, Hammersmith Apollo
4 – London, Royal Albert Hall

Although he made a secret return to the UK for intimate in-progress dates last year, the shows mark Ansari’s first full return to the UK since he was accused of sexual misconduct.

In a statement last year, Ansari responded: “In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.”

He then returned to the stage in New York last May, before making appearances in Madison, Wisconsin, and Milwaukee in August. According to Vulture, the star’s set focused on jokes about dating but included no reference to the claims made against him.
