Aziz Ansari Girlfriend, Wife, Parents, Brother, Height, Net Worth, Wiki

Aziz Ansari is one of those guys you would regard as a comedic genius because of his unrelenting efforts to form a marriage between social activism and comedy. He doesn’t make his audience laugh because he is a comedian and expected to evoke laughter. For him, the chance to get people laugh their heads off must come with efforts to promote the welfare of humanity and advocate for social change.

He once expressed that being a comedian has given him the audacity to talk about anything. According to him, all he’s been doing is to make funny remarks about controversial issues like immigration and feminism. With that, he gets to inspire people to give the issues second and more serious thoughts.

Beyond being a comedian, Ansari has established himself as an actor and a filmmaker. As an actor, he is definitely best known for playing Tom Haverford on NBC’s political satire series – Park and Recreation which ran from 2009 to 2015. Aziz was loved for his sarcastic role. He was undeniably one of the funniest characters in the sitcom created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur. Immediately the curtain fell on Park and Recreation after seven seasons spanning 125 episodes, the comedian had his shot at being a filmmaker. He partnered with Alan Yang to create Netflix’s comedy series, Master of None wherein he plays the Dev Shah lead role.

The critically acclaimed comedy-drama series which has been streaming on Netflix since November 2015 has earned the comedian a handful of prestigious awards. Already, history has documented Aziz Ansari as the first Asian-American to win a Golden Globe for acting in television. In 2017, the series earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. He also received the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing that same year. Aziz won the same ward the previous year (2016). That’s not all, the comedian can brag about receiving the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series and a Peabody Award.

Aziz Ansari Bio – Early Days and Rise to Fame

Born as Aziz Ismail Ansari to a Muslim family from Tamil Nadu, India on the 23rd day of February 1983, Aziz spent the earliest days of his life in Bennettsville, South Carolina; his place of birth was Columbia.

According to records, Aziz attended Marlboro Academy and South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics. He later acquired advanced education from the New York University Stern School of Business

He once disclosed he never gave making a career out of comedy a serious thought until when he was 18 and his friends urged him to try stand-up. He did, loved it and that marked the beginning of his career in the entertainment industry.

Although the man was raised a Muslim by his parents, he has long declared that he is not religious. Aziz wouldn’t disagree with you if you assert he is obsessed with food, he likes to eat a lot.

There was a time the comedian told the world that he was a product of an arranged marriage, many thought he was only making a joke until he gave an interview in 2013, restating that his parents were picked out by their respective families to become life partners.

His parents, Shoukath (father) and Fatima (mother) both built a career in Medicine. While we learnt that his father trained to become a physician focused on the management of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver, it is known that his mom was a worker in a medical establishment.

Aziz’s brother, Aniz Adam Ansari has been often described as a visual artist, a writer and an editor. It is said he’s one of the Netflix’s Master of None writers. Aziz’s parents appeared on the  1st and 2nd seasons of the Netflix comedy series.

Aziz’s Net Worth

The comedian has gathered an enviable amount of wealth for himself from his activities in the world of entertainment. In 2015, Forbes named his as #7 on its list of world’s highest-paid comedians, stating that he earned $9.5 million. At the time of this report, the value of his wealth was estimated at $18 million.

Wife or Girlfriend, Is Aziz Ansari Married? 

The comedian isn’t married. He was once in a relationship with a pastry chef, Courtney Mcbroom. From what we gathered, Aziz started dating the Chef in August 2013 and, it was food that made them lovers.

Sadly, the affair lasted for only two years. It collapsed shortly after the comedian co-authored a book about having a successful relationship – while it was speculated that the duo is set to buy a home together.

It is believed that the Aziz-Courtney romantic relationship didn’t lead to marriage because of the comedian’s busy schedule. While Aziz has not been strongly linked to anyone since he parted with the pastry chef, he was in January 2018, accused of sexual misconduct by a lady he went on a date with. You will find the full story here. The comedian has maintained that the encounter was consensual.
