Aziz Ansari is one of the biggest stars in the comedy world. Rolling Stone
put him on the cover of their special comedy issue labeling him "the funniest man under 30."
He recently debuted his much anticipated third hour-long stand-up special "Buried Alive" on Netflix in November. The special was named one of the best standup specials of the year by The Onion AV Club and Paste
Ansari co-stars opposite Amy Poehler in the beloved Emmy-nominated NBC series "Parks and Recreation", which is now in its sixth season. Ansari's portrayal of government employee 'Tom Haverford' has earned him critical praise including Entertainment Weekly naming him one of their "Breakout TV Stars," TV Guide
naming him a "Scene Stealer" and People
Magazine naming him 2011's "Funniest Dude in Prime Time."
Ansari's stand up work has been unparalleled over the past few years. His second hour-long stand-up special "Dangerously Delicious" was self-relased online through AzizAnsari.com for $5. In 2010, he had an hour-long standup special on Comedy Central titled "Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening." The special and subsequent DVD/CD were both extremely successful and both albums continue to be a mainstay on iTunes' comedy best-seller list.
