Aziz Ansari vs Kumail Nanjiani?

Who is better?

Kumail is probably more entrenched in geek and nerd culture.

Heads up Kumail is co-hosting the 2016 spirit awards with Kate McKinnon next Saturday.

I think Aziz is a little funnier, but Kumail is more likable. also I really like Silicon Valley.
I feel like I could hang out with him and have a good time, but hanging with Aziz would annoy the hell out of me.

Re: Aziz Ansari vs Kumail Nanjiani?

Do we really need a thread about which of two Indian-American comics is better? Especially when their comedy is not at all similar?

How about a Louis CK/Dane Cook thread? Good lord.

Yeah, these two guys aren't even remotely similar.

Re: Aziz Ansari vs Kumail Nanjiani?

Of course they're similar, they're both non-white.

I saw Aziz during the last Oddball Comedy Fesitval. He's okay, nothing exciting or side-splittingly funny. Seen very little of the other guy, so can't say much about him. I do like him in Silicon Valley, he's a funny side character.

So the answer is - sure.

Never heard of the second guy, but I've always found Ansari's comedy to be terrible.

Re: Aziz Ansari vs Kumail Nanjiani?

I take it we're going by their stand-up and not their tv or movie acting?

I found Mabuse too Victorian and literal.

I'm a fan of that sweater.

Anyway, I don't think I've ever heard this Kumail guy. Aziz can be funny, but he comes off like a really up-tight ultra PC kind of guy who would be a drag to hang with.

Kumail Nanjiani is hilarious every time he shows up on Portlandia.

Gabriel Iglesias.


Also, both the guys in the OP suck. Russell Peters is way funnier.
