Amongst other works, Ari Shaffir is probably most well-known for a series of comedy works entitled "The Amazing Racist," the title is a play on that of the reality television show The Amazing Race. In these shorts, "The Amazing Racist" is seen acting in a manner which is overtly and ironically racist. Shaffir filmed many of his offensive encounters for the DVD National Lampoon's Lost Reality. They were then ripped to the internet by hundreds of different nerds and seen by millions of people. Watching the videos makes many people laugh and many people very angry.
