CAA has signed actor, writer, and comedian Aziz Ansari, who co-stars in NBC’s Parks And Recreation. The actor, who had been at UTA, just opened his third Netflix hourlong stand-up special Buried Alive, and resumes touring next month. Anzari most recently voiced the Fox animated film Epic and made a short cameo until he fell into the pits of hell in This is The End. Before that he appeared in 30 Minutes Or Less and Funny People. Ansari separately is writing a book for Penguin Press about how modern dating has been complicated by the Internet and other technological innovations. The book comes out next year. Ansari continues to be repped by APA for books and comedy touring, managed by APA Dave Becky and David Miner of 3 Arts Entertainment, and lawyered by Jared Levine.
