Nasim Pedrad is done with Saturday Night Live, but she’s still showing us her impressions.
The actress dropped by Conan to share never-before-seen rehearsal footage from the late night comedy show in which she delivers a spot-on impression of Aziz Ansari. Seriously, she nails it. Watch below.
"I was constantly on a mission to play Aziz Ansari," she said of her time on SNL. "He's a very handsome guy, but me as Aziz is a real boner eraser."
Pedrad rose to SNL stardom thanks in large part to her super nasally version of Kim Kardashian. Awkward alert! The funny lady revealed details about her run-in with the real Kardashian.
"She was really sweet!" Pedrad said. "She was in pristine -- airbrushed makeup, perfect hair -- and I, that day, looked like a person who woke up in a dumpster. I hadn't slept in two days, I was wearing an extra-large t-shirt with the logo of a medical facility from my home town. She was understandably mortified to find out that I played her on the show."
Then, launching in to her signature Kardashian voice, Pedrad added: "She did say at one point, 'Do we really sound like that?' Fair question. She wanted to know! I was like 'No…' And she just goes, 'Oh, good.'"
Pedrad is headed to primetime this fall in a new role on Fox's freshman sitcom Mulaney, while Ansari is currently filming the final season of NBC's Parks and Recreation.
