Here’s a new video from JASH of a food and culture show called “Food Club” that was created by and stars Aziz Ansari, Eric Wareheim, and Jason Woliner, with Parks and Rec writer Alan Yang as Swab Yang. Wearing silly-looking captains’ hats, the three comedians travel from restaurant to restaurant, deciding whether the eateries are plaque-worthy or not.
Ansari, Wareheim, and Woliner started their Food Club years ago, before this video, as Ansari told The AV Club in 2010:
Myself, Eric Wareheim, and Jason Woliner decided to start a Food Club where the three of us go to restaurants with a couple of other people. The three of us are the captains of the Food Club, so we have to wear the captains’ hats. We went to Sona, which is this very, very nice restaurant that has Michelin stars. The chef knew our stuff and was really excited for us to be there, and he made us this awesome stuff. But we’re in this really nice restaurant, and the whole time, we were wearing these goofy captain hats. [Laughs.] People are there for their wedding proposals, and they look over and there’s three goofballs wearing hats.
