SNL’s Nasim Pedrad does a killer Aziz Ansari impression in this unaired sketch

Nasim Pedrad stood out among fellow Saturday Night Live players for her spot-on impressions, especially her recurring/accurate Kim Kardashian. In an interview with Conan O’Brien, where Pedrad stopped by to promote her new role on Mulaney, Pedrad revealed that there was always one impression she pushed: Aziz Ansari. She always brought it up, but it never got past dress rehearsal. O’Brien got his hands on the cut sketch, though, and aired it during his show. Pedrad referred to her impression as a “boner eraser,” but she perfectly captures Ansari’s jacket-enthused essence. The video is below, along with Pedrad’s story about meeting Kim Kardashain herself.
