Aziz Ansari’s new show Master of None is more thought provoking than funny. It provides insight into many difficult concepts while generally remaining light enough to infuse some comedy.
It isn’t a laugh-out-loud type of comedy show. Instead, it’s a realistic look at life. Unfortunately, life is frequently quite mundane which leaves Ansari nothing to do but reflect that, which sometimes appears dull and brings stiff performances.
It could use a more nuanced hand, but overall the show is enjoyable. Master of None is a Netflix original, you can find it streaming online.
