Comedy Actor Roundtable: Aziz Ansari, Jeffrey Tambor, Tony Hale, & More!

Some of the best comedy actors of 2016 gather around and have a chat. 

Rob Lowe and Aziz Ansari shared screen time during the later seasons of ‘Parks and Recreation.’ Jeffrey Tambor and Tony Hale, worked together for several years on ‘Arrested Development.’ And Anthony Anderson tried to recruit Keegan-Michael Key to join him in a recurring role on ‘Black-ish.’ But never have all six, plus sitcom newcomer Jerrod Carmichael sat together

THR gathered them for a frank and often hilarious conversation about their comedic inspirations, their lowest points as performers (spoiler: Tambor once fouled himself) and the compulsion to weave more powerful themes — including instances of police brutality or the allegations against onetime legend Bill Cosby — into their comedy.

Lacey rose asks questions like “Who has taught you the most about being funny on screen?” and their most embarrassing moment.
