Video: See Aziz Ansari Host ‘Saturday Night Live’

posted by Oscar January 22, 2017

Aziz Ansari was last night’s host of Saturday Night Live, featuring Big Sean as the musical guest. Anzari’s opening monologue focused on the biggest news in the country: Trump’s swearing in to the highest position in the country.

Aziz joked about Trump being “basically the Chris Brown of politics,” while adding “and ‘Make America Great Again’ is his ‘These Hoes Ain’t Loyal’” because some supporters pick and choose what aspects of Trump they actually acknowledge to support. He also touched on how certain people should go back to hiding their racism, and finding redeeming factors to George W. Bush’s speech after 9/11.

Check that out above and hit the jump to find Ansari in skits about La La Land and riding an Uber. Continue Reading

Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim Made a Hilarious Video for Kanye West’s “Famous”

posted by Oscar April 13, 2016

Kanye West’s “Famous” was an instant fan=favorite and we were compelled to make it one of our Top 5 tracks on The Life Of Pablo.

Aziz Ansari and Master Of None costar Eric Wareheim have gotten ahead of Yeezy himself, and today they have unleashed a music video of their own that they scored with “Famous.” The whole thing is super goofy and extravagant, with the pair taking to the streets of Italy and cause a proper raucous. You’ll love every moment of this!

Aziz Ansari Book Tour 2015

Comedian Aziz Ansari’s latest project is his new book Modern Romance and earlier today he’s announced the dates for his book tour. The multi-city trek will see Ansari speak about the book in cities like New York, DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, and others. Ansari’s Facebook update on the tour simply states that attendees will get to hear him talk, but it’s safe to assume some stand-up bits may bleed into each appearance.

For a look at what you can expect from the book you can head over to Time to read the excerpt, “Everything You Thought You Knew About L-O-V-E Is Wrong.”

Video: Cast Of ‘Parks and Rec’ Bid Farewell w/Live Performance of “5000 Candles In The Wind”

posted by Oscar February 25, 2015

Last night saw the end of an era with the airing of the series finale of Parks and Recreation. To say farewell, the show’s entire main cast got together to appear on Late Night with Seth Meyers like one of those MTV reunion shows, except with a lot less teen moms.

As their appearance drew to a close, Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Adam Scott, Retta, and Jim O’Heir (the dreadful Jerry/Larry/Terry/Garry) said goodbye with a final performance of Mouse Rat’s Li’l Sebastian tribute song, “5000 Candles in the Wind.” Oh and keep your eyes open early on in this clip, because for the first time ever, you will wish you were Garry. See that above.

During the cast’s appearance on the panel, they talked about the filming of the finale and also revealed how Chris “Andy Dwyer” Pratt wanted the series to actually end. You can check that out below. Continue Reading


Video: Nardwuar vs. Aziz Ansari

posted by Oscar September 8, 2014

During the OddBall Comedy Fest’s stop in Auburn, Washington the Human Serviette caught up with comedian, Aziz Ansari for another one of his signature weird interviews. On this one we hear about Aziz’ brother meeting Master P, a school mate’s quest for a new book bag, advocating for more recognition of South Carolina greats, getting heckled by Cuba Gooding Jr. and other good stories about the funny man.

It’s a good interview in general terms but even better because it’s another perspective on Aziz, brought to us all by one of the best interviewers around, so it’s worthy of a view.
