Attention stand-up enthusiasts and Parks and Recreation fans, funny guy Aziz Ansari will be headlining The Mahaffey Theater in downtown St. Pete on Sun., March 16.

Tickets are $38 for the special engagement went on sale last night at 8 p.m.

The comedian/actor — who offers an endless slew of bon mots and aphorisms known as Haverfordisms on Parks and Rec — has been doing his own brand of sociological research on relationships and is writing a book about it, a follow-up to his comedy special Buried Alive.

Ansari told The Daily Beast that his own misadventures in love inspired his book and "Modern Romance" stand-up tour.

“I wasn’t interested in just documenting my various foibles,” he told the publication. “I’m working with a lot of academics and really smart people to figure out how to study this stuff.”
