Previously, Ansari was known for his role on MTV's hit sketch-comedy series Human Giant. The series is based on 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. Last year, Ansari had a very memorable guest-starring role on HBO's The Flight of the Conchords, in which he portrayed a racist fruit vendor. This year, he was seen in a multi-episode arc on Scrubs.
Ansari recently completed his Glow in the Dark stand-up comedy tour, for which he crisscrossed the country, performing his buzzed-about stand-up act. He continues to do shows in L.A. and New York whenever he has time, often introducing to his audiences the character Randy, which is based upon his profane character in Funny People. In 2005, Rolling Stone named him its choice for Hot Stand-Up on their annual Hot List, and he was also awarded the Jury Award for Best Stand-Up at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in 2006. In addition, the Los Angeles Times recently listed him as one of the top-25 people to follow on Twitter.
Ansari currently resides in Los Angeles.
