Ari Shaffir is a comedian, podcaster, actor, producer, writer, and social media star from the United States. Many people knew him as the creator and host of his podcast, "Skeptic Tank," which began in 2011. But his viral video series The Amazing Racist made him famous.
His first stand-up comedy album, "Revenge for the Holocaust," was published that same year. Also, he is not controversial, but when Kobe Bryant's death was announced on Twitter, he responded with a backlash.
New York is the place of Ari David Shaffir's birth. His parents were Jewish and came from Romania. His father lived through the Holocaust. The family was raised as conservative Jews until Ari was nine, when they moved to Maryland and became Orthodox Jews. He worked at Arlington National Cemetery when he was 16 years old.
Shaffir went to high school in the Maryland city of Rockville. He then went to Yeshiva University in New York City to study for two years. After that, he moved to the University of Maryland and earned an English literature degree in 1999. Shaffir says he was the lowest-ranked NCAA athlete on the University's golf team in 1995.
When Shaffir was in his early 20s, he moved to Los Angeles to find better opportunities for his stand-up comedy career. He started by answering phones at The Comedy Store. He got the idea to try comedy from watching comedy shows on TV and comedians on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.
The Amazing Racist was the first thing that brought him closer to the public. In the late 2000s, he did a warm-up act for Joe Rogan. In 2010, he made, produced, and hosted This Is Not Happening, a stand-up comedy show. Before that, he had been in The Nasty Show, part of the Montreal Comedy Festival. He also appeared on the show The Joe Rogan Experience.
In 2012, he released Revenge for the Holocaust, his debut stand-up album. It was the most popular album on both Itunes and Amazon in its first week. Passive Aggressive, which he made for TV for the first time in 2013, was followed by Paid Regular and other shows. In 2013, he joined the sports podcast Punch Drunk as a co-host.
As a commercial actor, he worked for top companies like Coke Zero, Subway, Domino's, and Bud Light. He was in Keeping Up with the Joneses, a comedy (2016).
