Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

While he may be best known for his satirical appearances on "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996- ), Aasif Mandvi has also built a strong career as a film and stage actor. Attention first came his way thanks to a one-man show, "Sakina's Restaurant," which premiered off-Broadway in 1998, ultimately earning him an OBIE Award. When he began his stint as a guest correspondent on "The Daily Show," Mandvi showed off a wry comic delivery that has since become one of his trademarks on the program. Despite being an Indian-born Muslim, and therefore one of the least-frequently represented ethnic groups in Hollywood, Mandvi has carved out a place for himself as a versatile supporting player in both mainstream and independent projects.
