Aziz named 10 best comedian of the decade!

Aziz Ansari secures a spot in Paste magazine’s best comedians of 2000-2009

Paste magazine published a top-ten list of the best comedians of the decade. At #10 is Aziz Ansari.

Here’s Aziz’s blurb:

With a cultishly popular MTV show (Human Giant), a flourishing stand-up career, a scene-stealing turn in Judd Apatow’s Funny People, and a blog he actually posts on regularly, it’s only fitting that twentysomething comic Aziz Ansari make our list. Whether he’s hanging with idol Kanye West or bloodying up Ted Leo as “Clell Tickle: Indie Marketing Guru,” Ansari stays connected to the music world while taking us all on the highway to the comedy zone. And watch out, entertainment journos; Ansari recently started writing articles for the likes of Interview. Besides, who else can lay claim to literally being the A to Z of comedy?

Congrats, Aziz!

The complete list:

1. Dave Chappelle
2. Zach Galifianakis
3. Patton Oswalt
4. Chris Rock
5. David Cross
6. Sarah Silverman
7. Ricky Gervais
8. Eugene Mirman
9. Mitch Hedberg
10. Aziz Ansari

*For the record Aziz, in my book you mop the floor with Dave Chappelle, Patton Oswalt, Eugene Mirman, and Mitch Hedberg. The rest you just dust with...
