Aziz Ansari Speaks On His Ill-Fated DJing Career, Hecklers and More w/ Nardwuar
Nardwuar unearths his chat with Aziz Ansari (from what must be an endlessly deep vault of journalistic follies) in another hilarious display of his primo R&D skills. All of the usual tactics are in place, the gift-giving (hitting the comedian with a copy of Donnie And Joe Emerson‘s Dreamin’ Wild) and the divulging of details to Ansari’s life he himself had long forgotten or simply never knew (i.e. the time his brother met Master P.) We even get a glimpse at the seldom-spoken college DJ career of the top-tier comedian, shouting out his admiration of DJ Q-Bert, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist.
The duo of quirky orators jump into how the comedian handles heckling (how Cuba Gooding Jr. came to his defense during an unruly set, opening up for Drake when the rapper was 5 hours late,) his Human Giant beginnings and that one time he was jacked by some coke-drinking hooligans. Another righteous display of hilarious and thorough journalism from the Human Serviette, which was apparently (at least partly) orchestrated by OKP favorite Hannibal Burress. Watch Aziz Ansari become the latest victim of Nardwuar’s antics below.
