Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Gets The Exclusive For The Next Aziz Ansari Stand-Up Special

Posted Aug 30, 2013

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has gained the exclusive rights for Aziz Ansari’s next stand-up special called “Buried Alive.”  The special will be debuting on November 1st.

This is not the first stand-up special exclusive that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has gotten their hands on.  Last week, they gained the rights to carry Mike Birbiglia’s stand-up.

Eventually, Ansari will make his stand-up special available for download at a cost of $5.  Until then, I am sure that Netflix is paying him a pretty penny to keep it to themselves.

Earlier this month, we reported that Ansari has signed a book deal about how technology affects him as a single man.  That deal includes a $3.5 million advance.
