Aziz Ansari made history last month when he became the first person of South Asian descent to host Saturday Night Live. The in-demand star has also been busy working on the second season of his hit show Master of None (which Netflix says will be released in late 2017), so fans will have to wait a little bit longer to get more of his witty banter on screen.
Until then, they always have the award-winning writer's social accounts to mine for comedic relief. As he's proven, Aziz is pretty adept at bringing his stand-up voice to the masses via Twitter.
Here are just some of the best things he's shared online.
If we could somehow harness the energy from my pointless internet browsing, there would never be an energy crisis.

For the first time in my entire life, I am "buying" Microsoft Word. And this is what happens. Stealing was much more user friendly.

Speaking to Time in 2015 about how his sense of humour has evolved over the years, he had this to say: "My first special came out when I was in my early 20s. I’m 32 years old now, so I’ve just grown up as a person. I have more life experience, I’m going through different things. The guy who’s 23 couldn’t have written [a] book... he just hadn’t lived that life yet."
