Aziz Ansari Netflix Special ‘Buried Alive’ Gets Trailer (Which Features Seth Rogen)By: Chris Crum - September 24, 2013
Netflix has just released the trailer for the upcoming stand-up special from comedian Aziz Ansari, Buried Alive. As an added bonus, the trailer also features Seth Rogen, with whom Ansari discusses some interesting alternatives to a Netflix release.
Here’s the official description:
Filmed live at the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia, “Buried Alive” features “Parks and Recreation” star Ansari focusing his unique viewpoint on pending adulthood, babies, marriage, and love in the modern era. The show follows Ansari’s successful live tour of the same name, during which he performed in front of sold out crowds in over 75 cities all over the world at venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, London’s Hammersmith Apollo and the Sydney Opera House. It is a follow-up to his previous stand-up performances “Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening” and “Dangerously Delicious,” also available on Netflix.
The special, which is set to debut on November 1st, was announced last month. Netflix will reportedly give it the same type of promotion it usually reserves for its original shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.

Currently available specials include those from John Hodgman, Rob Schneider, Doug Stanhope, Mike Birbiglia, Kathleen Madigan, Moshe Kasher and Broken Lizard’s Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan.
Late last week, Netflix released the trailer for its upcoming Russell Peters special and docu-series (titled Notorious and Russell Peters Vs. The World, respectively).
Beyond stand-up specials, Netflix has offered a pretty wide variety of both exclusive and non-exclusive comedy offerings. Here’s comedian Reggie Watts talking about how Netflix has helped his show Comedy Bang Bang:
Buried Alive will become available for $5 download six months after the Netflix release.
