One user took to Twitter to share news of the surprise set. “I saw Aziz Ansari at the Comedy Cellar last night and if I told people this a year ago they’d be like ‘cool’ but now they’re like ‘oh,'” they wrote.

The controversial accusation against Ansari surfaced in January, when an anonymous 23-year-old woman wrote about her alleged unwanted sexual encounter on the website Babe.net.
Though it has not been confirmed whether or not Ansari discussed the allegations during his stand-up performances, Page Six reports he covered his usual topics of millennials, Starbucks, and racism.
