Carolina Kid

Aziz Ansari was born in Columbia, South Carolina, although his parents are originally from Tail Nadu in India. His father is a gastroenterologist and his mother works in a medical office - Aziz inherited his parents' academic talent and graduated from New York University with a degree in marketing, but comed is where he was destined to climb to the top.

Stand Up Star

While in New York Aziz began to perform stand up and hang out with the comedy community, by 2005 he made Rolling Stone magazine's Hot List for stand up, and by 2006 he was gaining recognition for his stand up set on HBO.

Parks and Rec to Epic

It was only a matter of time before Aziz landed a sitcom, and he fit in perfectly as Tom Haverford with the wacky but loveable crew running the parks department of the Indiana town of Pawnee in Parks in Recreation (which recently ended). Parks and Recreation isn't his only claim to fame, he's also appeared in movies like I Love You Man and 30 Seconds or Less, as well as voicing characters in the animated movies Ice Age: Continental Drift and most recently as Mub, a snail in Epic.
