Aziz Ansari's Master of None Trailer: Netflix Comedy Skewers Instagram, Race, the Morning-After Pill

Aziz Ansari’s character may only see black when he tries to look into his future, but the trailer for the comic’s new Netflix comedy Master of None contains multiple shades of funny.

As Dev, a rudderless, 30-year-old actor, contemplates dating, parenthood and his career, he drops hilarious truth bombs. Take his assessment of a white actor with some distant Indian heritage playing “the Indian guy” in The Social Network: “If you go back far enough, we’re all one-sixteenth something! I’m probably one-sixteenth black: You think they’re gonna let me play Blade?”

But Master of None doesn’t look like the kind of comedy that reserves its punch lines solely for its star. Saturday Night Live vet Noël Wells scores some guffaws of her own as Dev’s love interest — while various kids, parents and grandparents get their share of one-liners, too.

Check out the trailer above (and key art below), then tell us if you’ll binge-watch Master of None when it begins streaming Nov. 6 on Netflix.

    From what I’ve seen of Ansari on P&R, in interviews on talk shows and in his stand up, I’ll watch a few episodes without even checking out the trailer. He’s clearly much smarter than Tom Haverford and I bet he could elevate the level of his stand-up by skipping the material about encounters with singers and rappers, though he might alienate some of his fan base if he did so.

    November 6th? That’s soon! I think the trailer looks great. Very excited to stream this and Jessica Jones. Saw the Pilot at Comic Con and it was amazing. Daredevil is good, but Jessica Jones is amazing.

    This looks good to me, much better than the network rom-coms of late – quirky, but not forced. I won’t binge, but I will watch 2 episodes together.

    Could be promising. Of course some of these comedies the trailer shows all the jokes from the 1st episode so if those are it, then it won’t grab me for more than 2-3 episodes.

    Looks better than Kimmy whatever that other thing was called.

    That looks amazing! Aziz’s book was one of my favourite reads this year and Tom was one of the best characters on Parks & Rec. Netflix is seriously kicking some arse with their originals.

    How many episodes? I am guessing 13 and probably a half hour content? that seems to be the format for Netflix. I love Aziz so I am down for this!
