Aziz Ansari 'Parks' it at Irvine

Comedian Aziz Ansari speaks at Irvine Auditorium at SPEC-TRUM’s Spring Event. The Parks and Recreation actor started out in stand up comedy. SPEC-TRUM (To Represent Undergraduate Minorities), co-sponsors events with minority groups on campus.

“The fact that Aziz has been through college makes him really relatable,” said SPEC-TRUM Co-Director and College senior Mulu Habtemariam. “And a lot of his comedy actually sheds light on things that he experienced throughout his life, from his upbringing in the South to college at NYU.”

Upcoming SPEC concerts will showcase rising artists

The Jazz and Grooves concert will feature Star Slinger, while SPEC-TRUM's concert will present Theophilus London, Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill.

“A lot of mainstream artists don’t necessarily have a lot of creative control … you get a different perspective [from concerts like these],” College senior and SPEC-TRUM director Mulu Habtemariam said.
