Ticket alert: Aziz Ansari at Hard Rock

Comedian Aziz Ansari will bring his Road to Nowhere tour to the Hard Rock Event Center at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood on April 20.

Reserved-seat tickets will cost $127.50, $92.50, $72.50 and $52.50 and go on sale at noon Friday, Nov. 30, at MyHRL.com (with its 360-degree virtual seat map) and all Ticketmaster outlets, including Ticketmaster.com and by calling 800-745-3000. A Ticketmaster Verified Fan presale will be held 10 a.m.-noon Friday.

Best known as the star, writer and co-creator of the Emmy-winning Netflix comedy “Master of None,” which followed his breakout role on “Parks and Recreation,” Ansari will be making a comeback of sorts with this tour.

The 35-year-old performer has been out of the spotlight since January, when a woman accused Ansari of ignoring her cues, verbal and nonverbal, that she was uncomfortable with his physical advances after a dinner date. Ansari has said he believed the activity “by all indications was completely consensual.”

In a statement made through his publicist, Ansari said the woman’s account left him “surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. … I continue to support the [Time’s Up] movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

Ansari, of course, is the author, with sociologist Eric Klinenberg, of the 2015 bestseller “Modern Romance,” an examination of the contemporary realities and frustrations of dating.

In October, Ansari performed a last-minute, three-night stand at the Palm Beach Improv.
