Aziz Ansari, Eric Wareheim Launch Their Own Cooking Show

Funny guys get serious on eating.

The comedy triumvirate of Aziz Ansari, Eric Wareheim (the hirsute half of Tim & Eric) and comedy writer Jason Woliner have taken cues from noted buddy David Chang and turned their shared love of eating into the most important food and culture show ever created: a new web series titled Food Club.

Don't be fooled by the magnificently obnoxious opening credits (which involve a super yacht, matching captain hats and reckless disposal of a lobster corpse) because all three hosts show a sincere appreciation for the experience of partaking in a bite - whether its in the form of a dirt cheap Banh Mi at Los Angeles institution Banh Mi My-Tho or high art culinary experimentation at exclusive 'supper club' Wolvesmouth - and provides some top local tips for travellers to boot.

Watch the first episode.
