Aziz Ansari Played The Part Of ‘The Genie’ In A Tap Dancing Recital As A Kid

Before Aziz Ansari talked about his new book, Modern Romance: An Investigation, on The Tonight Show last night, he relayed an anecdote about participating in tap dancing class as a kid with an accompanying group photo. He told Jimmy Fallon that, during the tap dancing class recital, while the rest of the class was dancing to “Electric Slide” or something like that, he had to come out as a genie, a part he said “may have been tailored to him.”

For what it’s worth, I’m sure Aziz made the most adorable genie ever.
