Why is Aziz Ansari looking for work, and doing so on video for the Producers Guild Awards?
Let's watch and find out:
Oh, it's a joke. I get it. Ansari doesn't actually need work, because while it's true that he'll be on hiatus from his current role on a network primetime sitcom in NBC's Parks and Recreation, and he'll be seen later this year in the film, 30 Minutes or Less, he has plenty of stuff on his plate. Several movie projects in development, in fact. All of it pretty much green-lighted with the help of Judd Apatow, the guy who also happened to host the PGAs this year.
If you do want to book Aziz Ansari for your next project, though, it's also true that he's represented by UTA — and 3Arts. For stand-up bookings, go through Mike Berkowitz at APA.
For all of the other stand-up comedians who truly do need work, just ask me. Maybe we can figure something out together.
