USF alum makes it to The Daily Show

Aasif Mandvi, the new Middle Eastern Bureau Chief for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has a Tampa connection - the theater department at USF. He won an Obie for his play Sakina's Restaurant, and was in both Eric Bogosian's subUrbia and Trevor Nunn's revival of Oklahoma. A lot of folks might recall him as Peter Parker's pizza shop boss in Spider-Man 2. He's been seen on TV in everything from Law and Order to The Sopranos to Sex in the City to Oz.
