Aziz Ansari is releasing his new stand-up special as a $5 download on his personal site, following in the mighty footsteps of Louis C.K. and  Jim Gaffigan. Now it's a trend! This is officially now the cool way to release your cool comedy specials if you are a cool, already famous comedian with a fan base that skews a little dorky/Internety. (Are you next, Patton Oswalt?) Aziz Ansari: Dangerously Delicious, which was filmed last April, is being released in its uncensored form, because that is the whole point of the Internet.
