Aziz Ansari on Harris Wittels [Link]

A wonderful eulogy by Aziz Ansari for his friend:

I was so excited for what was ahead for Harris. I knew he was going to really explode after this new project. The little bit of Wittels comedy out there was just the tip of the tip of the iceberg.

Say what you will about the Internet. Reading a friends eulogy about someone I never met or knew much about just made me a bit more human. There's an abundance of personal and meaningful stories if we are willing to look beyond cat pictures.

I barely knew who Harris Wittles was. Now, I know we're all a little worse off because of his death. I'm sorry for that.
