Aziz Ansari is bringing his Road to Nowhere tour to Dublin this year, it has been announced.

The Emmy Award winner will perform in Vicar Street on March 31.

The Master of None and Parks & Recreation star is touring for the first time when his career was stalled last January following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Ansari has three stand-up specials on Netflix, and has appeared in films such as I Love You, Man and Get Him To The Greek.

He came under fire after a young woman published her account of spending a night with him on Babe, and it was pretty unpleasant to read.

Ansari responded in a statement last year, saying:

“In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date."

"We went out to dinner and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.”

Vulture allege that the star’s set focused on relationships jokes but included no reference to the claims of misconduct.

Tickets for the stand-up comedy show are priced at €51 and go on sale on Friday 18 January at 10am on Ticketmaster.

Pete Davidson has performed his first stand-up comedy show since his troubling social media posts depicting suicidal thoughts.

He opened up about his relationship with pop singer Ariana Grande, his former fiancé. Since their much-publicised split, Pete has been relatively quiet about the singer, aside from his worrying Instagram posts.

The Saturday Night Live star performed a set in Boston on New Year's Eve, and you can bet the Thank, U Next star came up in conversation.

 

He first made a quip regarding their break-up a few weeks ago, Ari clapped back with; "For somebody who claims to hate relevancy you sure love clinging to it, huh. Thank u. next."

The topic of break-up songs was brought up by Davidson during his show, with the comedian commenting that;

"Here's the thing about the breakup song. Usually breakup songs you know who it's about but you don't really know. That G named all of us," he spoke to the crowd, blatantly referring to the number one song Thank U, Next.

"Bam. She named all of us. And then, tells us, yeah, he has a big dick." He continued. 

"So I start playing it. And we're all like, "Ehhh… it's ok." We're like "Okay, it's not that bad for you."

"It made me see how ugly people can get, and how cool people can be," he reportedly said, according to Us Weekly. 

The publication claims that Pete carried on with his Ariana conversation, saying that most artists don't actually name their exes in their songs.

He joked;

"Not this wonderful lady. This diabolical genius named all of us." He also said that the smash hit song premiered right before SNL, at which point he told his cast-mates and friends:

"We all have to listen to this song and you all have to look at me, it’s gonna be rough."

Yikes. He later described crying with his mother on the kitchen table after hearing the song.

Well, break-ups rarely end without at least one party feeling heartbroken.

At least Pete admitted that the song is catchy, he's trying to see the brighter side of 2019 by the sound of things…

The reigning queen of daytime talk TV, Ellen DeGeneres, has spoken about the future of her hugely popular show while out promoting her upcoming Netflix stand-up special, Relatable.

In an interview with The New York Times, the comedy star speaks about her desire to return to acting one day, and maybe even play an 'unappealing' role for once. SOB.

The infamous host evidently wants to explore more of her own personality, as opposed to continuing with her sixteen-year long programme, The Ellen Show.

One of the reasons why Ellen may need a bit of a breather from her show is most likely because of her ultra-nice reputation, which might refrain her from showing other parts of her emotional range;

“The talk show is me, but I’m also playing a character of a talk-show host. There’s a tiny, tiny bit of difference," she says.

She comments on how she can't do anything even slightly rude, no matter the circumstances, as everyone expects her to show her sunny side constantly, or else to break into dance…

She can't even beep a pedestrian who walks out in front of her car, even if it's just the Biebs prancing around in the snow:

Her show rarely has anything negative or serious, unless she's mentioning tragedies or natural disasters taking place in America or around the world for humanitarian efforts.

In fact, she almost didn't extend her contract until 2020- imagine, a world without her show? We just can't.

She discusses the different stances which her brother and wife Portia De Rossi take on the future of her talk show.

Vance believes that his sister needs to remain the beacon of light and hope until at least the current US President resigns (they need her, so badly), whereas Portia thinks her wife should explore other creative outlets;

“I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity. There are other things she could tackle.”

There must be a ridiculous amount of pressure on Ellen's shoulders, the world would potentially shut down if she even uttered a curse word.

We hope she doesn't leave our screens too soon, but Ellen would undoubtedly go on to even greater projects- she's clearly got talent in any role she takes on.

Her anticipated stand-up show Relatable which streams on Netflix on December 18.
