If you have seen me, it’s probably been in one of these projects…

When you think of ‘Malik Aziz’ of course, you think of Christmas, so it’s only natural my return to the director’s chair in 2014 is me taking on one of the flaws in an otherwise great Christmas film.  This is ‘Santa’s Third Wheel’…

The last time I was in the director’s chair was for my short film ‘Lady In My Life.’  It did well on the festival circuit, and was shown nationally on BET’s Lens On Talent, and in syndication across the country on ‘African-American Short Films’.

Those of you who are fans of Adult Swim may recognize me from ‘You’re Whole’.  Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter have definitely giving me a couple ‘breaks’ in front of the camera:

I’ve come a long way from my first national TV exposure: as one half of the greatest tag team in reality TV history, ‘Twisted Steel & Sex Appeal’ on ’10 Things Every Guy Should Experience: WrestleMania XX Edition’ in 2004. Got a nice ‘rub’ from my hometown newspaper though…

“Aziz in particular had stage presence to spare, delivering a rant that would have made a fire and brimstone preacher proud.”

Tim Engle, Kansas City Star, ’10 Things Every Guy Should Experience’

I’ve also appeared multiple times as the ‘Celebrity Narrator’ for ‘Nailed It! Productions’ live shows.  To wit…

‘And who better to narrate these proceedings but Mr. Samuel L. Jackson (Malik Aziz) in uber-cool mode, who spices things up intermittently with badass attitude and commentary.’ – Lovell Estelle III, L.A. Weekly, ‘Natalie Portman: the Musical’

‘Malik Aziz’s performance as (Samuel L.) Jackson is well worth the price of admission (I got chills when he started quoting Pulp Fiction).’ – Chantel Donnan, Music In Press

Last but definitely not least, you and your kids may have spotted me as Joe the Delivery Man in an episode of Nick at Nite’s ‘See Dad Run’.  The joy of the completely unexpected residual check is always nice…

So what’s next? We shall see…
