Aziz Ansari Bio

Aziz Ansari

Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari has acted in many comedic films and television shows. He is most famous for his role in NBC comedy Parks and Recreation as government employee Tom Haverford.

As a student a New York University, Ansari began performing standup comedy. He first got his start when he starred in and helped create comedy sketch show Human Giant (2007-2008). After two seasons on MTV, Ansari and his co-creators quit the show to pursue other career goals.  

In the realm of film, Ansari has acted in Get Him to the Greek (starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill), I Love You, Man (starring Paul Rudd), Observe and Report, 30 Minutes or Less, and Funny People. Funny People Director Judd Apatow commissioned Ansari and Human Giant co-creator Jason Woliner to develop online short films about Ansari's character in Funny People in order to promote the films. These shorts were internet hits and are being used as inspiration for future Apatow films. Within this short amount of time, Ansari has become one of the hottest new comedians in Hollywood.

Ansari has embarked on three comedy tours, showcasing fresh material in each one. In 2010, he released the comedy CD titled Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening. He subsequently performed his Dangerously Delicious Tour, and, thereafter, his latest tour titled Buried Alive. He has also made appearances in various comedy shows, such as Scrubs and Flight of the Concords. If his rapid success in the past few years is any indication, Ansari is destined to be one of the leading comedians in the entertainment world.

Through some grace of God, I was gifted with a free ticket to see Aziz Ansari at DAR Constitution Hall. I had seen Aziz briefly in the past during his 2011 performance at University of Maryland, College Park. I remember him nearly reducing a newly married couple to tears after they mistakenly revealed that they had gotten married in their early twenties. Intrigued, I looked forward to Aziz's most recent comedy tour. It did not disappoint. Aziz covered a variety of topics ranging from his commitment fears to the wide prevalence of "dick pics". I am pretty sure my rapt face resembled one of those creepy nodding bobblehead dolls. He took us on a journey through some of the vague horrors of life, such as the marriage proposal's insidious undertones: "I want to watch you die!", to more specific fears, such as his survey of audience women who had received unwanted photographs of male genitalia. While these jokes may seem juvenile upon a cursory glance, they were elevated, updated. Think: upscale bathroom humor for the professional twenty-something. Think: the little man from Parks and Recs that you wish would just live in your pocket and provide insightful comments about the mundanity of your daily life. Seeing him at DAR was the next best thing.
