You Need To See This Aziz Ansari Impersonation

If you're bummed to see Nasim Pedrad leave Saturday Night Live after five seasons, you're not alone — especially now that we know she has a killer Aziz Ansari impersonation up her sleeve.
The Mulaney star shared the spot-on impression during an appearance on Conan this week. Perdad's no stranger to mimicking celebrities (hi, Kim Kardashian!), but her transformation into the bearded Parks and Recreation star simply takes the cake. (Although, a fake Jean-Ralphio would have been nice.)
"It’s kind of disturbing," Pedrad told Conan. "He’s like a very handsome guy, but me as Aziz is a real boner eraser."
Alas, SNL never aired the Ansari skit, which means we'll never really know just how good she was at nailing Tom Haverford's slang. Don't you just want to see "The Brown Gosling" kicking back at the Snake Hole Lounge. Or, better yet, embarking on a "Treat Yo' Self Day" with Donna? You'll have to settle for the short clip Conan found. It's just enough to make us know we want more. SNL, we were robbed.
