    Summary- Comedians are a way in which one is able to entertain themselves and at the same time view one’s talent. There are several comedy shows that take place in many different theatres including at Madison Square Garden. On October 9, 2014 a comedian by the name of Aziz Ansari did a comedy show at Madison Square Garden.
