It’s the year of stand-up in Fresno, with more than a few high-profile comedians stopping through town (sometimes for multiple nights).

Included on that list is Aziz Ansari, who performs Friday night at the Warnors Theatre on his Road to Nowhere tour.

The actor/comedian was a standout on the NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation” before becoming a critical darling, writing and staring in his own Netflix series “Master of None.” He was also in the news in 2018 following a very public sexual assault allegation.

Details: 8 p.m. Friday. Warnors Theatre, 1400 Fulton St. $20. 559-264-2848, www.warnors.org
