Plan to treat yo self, Dallas. Tom Haverford Aziz Ansari announced via Twitter this morning that he'll be bringing his swag to the American Airlines Center September 13. All year, he's been taking his cheesy smile and well-pressed suits to cities across the U.S. on his "Modern Romance" tour and tickets sell out quickly, so take a minute to set a calendar alert in your phone. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday

Ansari's early days as a comic were spent crafting his own brand of nerdy comedy that poked fun at pretentious hipster culture. A natural goofball, his affable dorkiness as Parks and Recreation's sarcastic entrepreneur, Tom Haverford, earned him a loyal following. There's even TomHaverfoods.com, a web site fully devoted to a single bit on the show, during which Tom is a culinary wordsmith. In his stand-up shows, don't expect wholesome Tom, but do expect a suit. Ansari is his own charming, swaggerific character, with an inappropriate sense of humor and an unhealthy obsession with pop culture.

Keep an eye on tour.azizansari.com for tickets.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
