Aziz Ansari is hosting SNL this month and it will mark a first for his career and the South Asian community. We can only imagine what the celebrated comedian will bring to the table when he host SNL towards the end of January.
Comedian Aziz Ansari will host “Saturday Night Live” on Jan. 21, the NBC show announced Tuesday, and in doing so, he will make history as its first host of South Asian descent. The gig comes on the heels of a big year for Ansari. The standup comic and television star won his first Emmy (outstanding writing for a comedy series) after earning a total of four nominations for his Netflix series “Master of None.”
