Aziz Ansari has a new interview with India Daily News where he talks about how he’s an ‘indecisive commitment-phobe’.
He says the focus of his new ‘Buried Alive’ show is about the commitment to marriage, children, and family, saying, “"It's about being scared of hitting that point in life where you're settling down and the feeling is almost like being buried alive. I couldn't imagine having a baby ... or getting married now," he says. "But I love hearing about other peoples' lives, their relationship stories. That stuff is always super fascinating to me."
He also talks about his parents’ marriages, saying, “"My dad says they talked for 30 minutes and a week later got married. People hear that and it's like" -- he leans in and widens his eyes -- "'Oh my God! Are they OK?! Do they hate each other?!' But their marriage is great."
He adds that he’s also had a wonderful experience growing up, despite being the only ethnic kid in his school in the South. "People hear [how I grew up] and think: 'Oh my God! Are you OK?!' But it wasn't bad. There's plenty of ignorant, dumb people everywhere, and there's plenty of thoughtful, super-nice people everywhere."
