Yes! This will certainly hold us over while Parks & Recreation is on its mini-hiatus!
Anziz Ansari has literally dropped a brand new comedy special, called Aziz Ansari: Dangerously Delicious, out of the blue by making it instantly available for a $5 purchase via his website!
But don't worry!
You can ch-ch-check out a preview of the hour-long stand-up routine, which was filmed by Jason Woliner last year at The Warner Theatre in Washington DC (above)!
Come on! That price is definitely a steal!
And we don't want him to get bummed out! Ha!

It’s always refreshing when celebrities use their talent and influence to promote a good cause, and that’s exactly what comedian and Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari is currently doing.
After reading this truly harrowing article in Rolling Stone about one Mississippi town’s extreme high rate of teen suicides - a majority of which had to do with sexual orientation - Aziz was moved to action.
Ansari put on a sold-out, impromptu show to benefit Justin’s Gift, an LGBT organization set up by the mother of Justin Aaborg who was one of the Mississippi teens who committed suicide.
The response was so positive, Ansari decided to do another, but this time on a larger scale with a more impressive line up.
The second benefit will be held tomorrow night at Largo, Los Angeles and features Hannibal Buress, Nick Kroll, and Chelsea Peretti, among others.
This is truly inspirational. Aziz - you set the bar for the rest of 'em!

New York Giants owner Steve Tisch sure knows how to treat his players!
To celebrate his team's huge Super Bowl victory this past Sunday, the NFL owner partnered with Tequila Avion to throw a
big GIANT party in NYC's Meatpacking district.
First the champions were treated to a decadent dinner at Abe & Arthur's, where Swizz Beatz spun some sounds, then partied it up at the 1 OAK night club with lots of celebrity guests, including a special performance by Nas.
Kellan Lutz, Nicky Hilton, Holly Madison, Wilmer Valderamma, Chris Rock and Aziz Ansari joined MVP Eli Manning and running back Brandon Jacobs to drink and dance the night away.
Like any good party, there was cake too. The impressively designed dessert featured a Giant helmet and Lombardi Trophy. Not sure if they were edible, but either way, that cake looked damn delicious!
Check out more pics from the biggest NFL party of the year below!

Naughty, naughty Drake!
As Sundance continues rock on in Park City, a blizzard Saturday almost kept the hip hop star from making it to his performance!
Drake arrived three hours late, much to the chagrin of his warm-up act, Aziz Ansari.

We love comedy and we love curing cancer! Who better to remind us to give a
sh*t spit about cancer than two of the funniest guys on TV?
Chris Pratt and Aziz Ansari from Parks and Recreation are spreading the word for anyone over 18 to give a spit about cancer on behalf of DoSomething.Org.
The campaign is calling for possible donors to join the Be The Match registry and potentially save the life of a blood cancer patient. To participate, simply swab a few cheek cells from inside your mouth and mail it back to the registry to see if you're a match!
To find out more information about how to get involved or hold your own "Give a Spit" drive on your college campus, click here!

Justin Bieber was NOT scheduled to appear at last night's MTV Movie Awards, but when his movie Never Say Never won the award for Best Jaw Dropping Moment, he was there to claim the prize.
Here's what Justin had to say about his win:
"It feels great. I'm so blessed. I'm so glad to be back here and to have so many great fans. It's a great night."
And here's what Aziz Ansari, dressed up as Jaden Smith, had to say about Biebs' absence (before he showed up):
"He's not here! He's not here! He's too busy burning a huge pile of cash in a private jet while he's Skyping with Jaden Smith and Selena Gomez!"
Ha! And here's what Justin had to say about why he chose to show up at the Awards:
"I couldn't let down my fans."
Thanks for making it to the show, Justin! We're sure all the true Bieblievers out there sincerely appreciated it!
Were U happy to see The Biebs at the MTV Movie Awards? Do U think his movie deserved the Best Jaw Dropping Moment award?
