Aziz Ansari‘s fans aren’t going anywhere.
The comedian, 35, who was accused of sexual misconduct in January, made a surprise appearance at the Comedy Cellar on Tuesday night.
“They lost it when he came out,” an audience member told Page Six, noting that Ansari came prepared with a notebook full of fresh material.
“It was pretty awesome, he was hilarious,” we’re told. The comedian’s set at the Greenwich Village club lasted a half-hour.
The “Master of None” star didn’t address the accusations made by an anonymous woman on Babe.net that he ignored “non-verbal cues” that she “wasn’t interested” in getting physical during a date gone wrong.
While this isn’t his first time on stage at the Comedy Cellar since the controversy, a rep from the iconic venue said that the crowd’s excitement is a sign that support for the comedian hasn’t wavered when reached for comment on Wednesday.
Ansari has also received support from his “Parks and Recreation” co-star Retta and fellow comedian Amy Schumer.
