I did a Q and A to promote my upcoming show a the Middle East in Cambridge, MA on Thursday. Tickets available here. Here’s an excerpt of the Q and A, click above for the full article:
Q. Your new NBC comedy with Amy Poehler has no title yet. Have you offered any ideas?
A. The title I’ve been tossing around is “That’s So Aziz.” I don’t know if it’ll catch on.
Q. That’s got a ring to it. Does it have an exclamation point?
A. No. But my other pitch is “Aziz in the House!” and that one does.
Q. Do you ever envision trying dramatic acting?
A. Not right now. I’m pretty happy doing what I’m doing. I just want to do it on a bigger scale.
Q. So we won’t see you 10 years from now accepting an Oscar for your work in a war film?
A. No. But I could see myself becoming a straight-up action star like Jason Statham. I just want to put that out there for whoever makes those movies: I’m down to take over the “Transporter” franchise.
I’m really looking forward to this! If I can get a picture taken with the great Aziz, it will be a good year..
“i love messing with these people. when i tell them that i don’t give a rats ass about the environment they either get angry or look crushed. then i get in my Escalade and drive around with the emergency brake on.”—steve’s comment from yelp regarding Greenpeace canvassers in Boston. Hilarious, because I’ve recently gotten fed up with the-people-with-the-clipboards, too.
