Or you might know him as the erratic character "Raaaaandy!"—an alter ego of his that gained stardom through Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's website Funny Or Die and Judd Apatow's heartfelt comedy, Funny People. But if you go by full names, you know him as Aziz Ansari, the "funniest man under 30," according to Rolling Stone.
