Aziz Ansari is having a great year. The stand-up comedian has officially become the first ever South Asian person to be nominated for a leading role at The Emmys. After finding out his nomination; Aziz talked with CNN to reflect on the moment and his show that got him there, Master Of None on Netflix.
CNN: Must be really cool to see there’s an appetite for these different faces and voices, too.
I think the show is a testament to the idea that when someone watches something, or sees a script from some of our stuff, they might go, “Eh, I don’t know if a mainstream audience could really relate to this,” which basically means, “I don’t know if white people will get this.” And this tells them, “You know what? That’s bull****.” We’ve all been watching stories about white people forever. Every minority has to sit there and watch this white guy go through stuff. People can relate to any problem, or story, as long as it’s well written. If it’s good characters, funny, interesting, it will work. I think that’s proven with the show.
