Watch Aziz Ansari Buy Plan B in the Master of None Trailer

Given the heavy relationship content in his last standup special and the success of Modern Romance, it would seem that Aziz Ansari is positioning himself as a romantic sage of sorts. But the trailer for his upcoming Netflix series, Master of None, depicts him as just another awkward fool (named Dev) who’s clumsily… »10/23/15 11:10am10/23/15 11:10am

Check Out This Compilation of Tom Haverford's Craziest Business Ideas

I have mixed feelings about Parks & Recreation (mostly good, but I just got stuck halfway through Season 6 and can't bring myself to watch it), but my favorite part is probably any instance of Aziz Ansari's Tom Haverford pitching one of his ridiculous ideas, or just sharing one of those classic Haverfordisms.

50 Cent Responds to Aziz Ansari's Claim He's Never Heard of Grapefruit

Watch Aziz Ansari Lay Waste to the Lazy Racism of His Fellow Comedians

This is a few days old, but still worth a watch. Aziz Ansari was one of the many standups to perform at the Comedy Central Roast of James Fanco over the weekend. It's normal and usually acceptable for comedians at roasts to get nasty and personal when joking about the other people in attendance (and not just the… »9/05/13 6:00pm9/05/13 6:00pm

The Orphan Black Clones Will Get Busy With Park & Rec's Tom Haverford

Tatiana Maslany — who is beyond brilliant as clones trying to make it in a non-clone world on BBC America's Orphan Blackhas booked a two-episode arc on NBC's Parks & Recreation as Tom Haverford's love interest.
