Bio

Aziz Ansari is an American stand-up comedian and actor best known for his starring role as Tom Haverford, the self-serving colleague of Leslie Knope (series star Amy Poehler), in the comedy series Parks and Recreation.

He was also one of three stars of the MTV sketch-comedy show Human Giant, from 2007-2008, based around comedy sketches performed by Ansari, along with Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer.

Many of their sketches have become Internet sensations and have popularized the trio with young people all across the U.S.

In 2009 Ansari appeared in Judd Apatow's comedy Funny People, opposite Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill, and also had roles in I Love You, Man with Paul Rudd, and opposite Rogen and Anna Faris in Observe and Report.

In 2008, Ansari also had a memorable guest-starring role on Flight of the Conchords, in which he portrayed a racist fruit vendor. He can also be seen in a multi-episode arc on Scrubs.

His Dark Comedy Standup Tour saw him criss-cross America performing his buzzed about standup act. In 2005, Rolling Stone named him their choice for Hot Standup on their annual Hot List, and he was also awarded the Jury Award for Best Standup at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in 2006.

Ansari currently resides in Los Angeles.
