Become a master of the celebrity interview by watching Nardwuar talk to Aziz Ansari

The comic opens up about his brother, a high school classmate, Canada and Cuba Gooding Jr.

Anyone looking to engage celebrities should take (some) tips from Nardwuar the Human Serviette, the eccentric Canadian interviewer and musician who recently impressed Aziz Ansari by granting him his "favorite interview ever." Nardwuar, famous for unearthing obscure relics from his interviewee's past and for asking oddball questions, got Ansari to open up about Master P, that time Cuba Gooding Jr. interrupted his set, a guy with crazy hair in Ansari's high school, and much, much more. It's the rare celeb interview where Ansari isn't the funny guy in the room, and unlike Zach Galifianakis' "Between Two Ferns" series, the awkwardness doesn't seem rehearsed.
