Aziz Ansari is a funny dude I first discovered when he used to do a show called Crash Test at the UCB theater in New York. The guy had a “Shittiest Mix Tape Challenge” where he challenged his roommate to make the shittiest mix tape possible. The loser had to walk around New York with a boom box blasting the horribleness. Aziz lost and the video was hilarious.
Since then, Ansari has scored himself a part in NBC’s Parks & Recreation and a part in Judd Apatow’s Funny People, where he plays a comedian named Randy who performs by hopping around, spitting catch-phrases and using samples from a DJ.
Funny People has been virally promoting itself around the web (American readers can, and should, check out faux-sitcom Yo Teach! on Hulu), and Raaaaaaaandy made his web debut on LaughYourDickOff.com where you can see some of Randy’s stand up, play with a sound board and read about his jumping.
Funny Or Die has now uploaded the first part in a documentary about Randy in promotion of Funny People at the end of the month.
