One of the fastest-rising comics in the world, you will know Aziz Ansari as the breakout star of the hit NBC show Parks And Recreation where he co-stars opposite SNL's Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones. Ansari plays 'Tom Haverford,' the sarcastic and occasionally sleazy government employee who is trying to weasel his way to the top of the local Parks And Recreation department in Pawnee, Indiana.

On Tuesday, January 19th Aziz will release his first ever comedy CD and accompanying DVD titled Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening. The cd and special were recorded in the fall of 2009 during Ansari's wildly successful Glow In The Dark Comedy Tour. The special will air on Comedy Central on Sunday, January 17th and showcases his fast wit and hilarious takes on pop culture.

You also know Aziz from a number of feature films. He appears in Judd Apatow's comedy Funny People opposite Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, and Jonah Hill. In the film, Ansari plays a vulgar, sex-obsessed stand-up comedian named 'Raaaaaaaandy.' The popularity of the character has led Judd Apatow to commission a series of mockumentaries based on 'Raaaaaaaandy' which have been released on FunnyOrDie.com.

Ansari also recently wrapped production on another Judd Apatow film Get Him to the Greek, which he will star in alongside Jonah Hill and Sean 'Diddy' Combs. Ansari also had roles in the hit comedies I Love You, Man with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, and opposite Seth Rogen and Anna Faris in Observe and Report.

Ansari came to attention on MTV's hit sketch comedy series, Human Giant, had a very memorable guest starring role on HBO's Flight of the Conchords, and Entertainment Weekly named him one of the top 12 future stars of comedy with LA Weekly putting him on the cover of their annual People Issue. Ansari began performing standup in 2001 while attending NYU. 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 US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in 2006.
