Will the Real Aziz Ansari Please Stand Up?
Anderson welcomed comedian Aziz Ansari to the show on Wednesday, but the funnyman decided to send his look-alike, Sumit, to the show instead.
As soon as Sumit sat down, Anderson put his glasses on and asked him, "Who the hell are you?" before the real Ansari stepped out from backstage. Ansari explained, "Anderson, sorry, I was running a little bit late, so I had my look-alike do the beginning of the interview, I hope he didn't say anything racist."
Ansari explained he used his look-alike to help promote his latest stand-up special, "Dangerously Delicious," on his website. "So I get to come up with weird stunts to try to get the word out, so one thing we did a few weeks ago was have Sumit go out on the street with a sign, and sell the special to people while looking exactly like me… and people were very confused."
