[I]n watching "Right Now," Ansari appears to be recognizing the need for growth - not just his own, but the culture at large's as well.

It's not the Aziz of old - I mean how much mileage was really left in renaming foodstuffs and publicly bullying his cousin? - but the quieter, more contrite Ansari 2.0 still has plenty left to say.

In Right Now, Ansari is a fitting ambassador for a certain bourgeois ambivalence.

By framing the new special around his personal story, and also trimming and refining some weak spots, his act now coheres, taking on a new force and clarity, one that represents his finest, boldest and probably most polarizing work.

[T]his is still the work of a comedy veteran who channels righteous fed-up-ness and critiques obliviousness with relatable flair.
