SNL welcomed three new members among its cast in 2021. Aristotle Athari, James Austin Johnson, and Sarah Sherman were the three young comedians joining the ranks of one of the most respected sketch comedy show on American Television.
This article will mostly focus on Aristotle Athari and his journey to SNL. Along the way, we shall also distribute a fair dose of Aristotle Athari wikis.
Aristotle Athari Ethnicity, Background: Is He Greek?
Aristotle Athari’s parents are a constant feature on his Instagram, especially his mother, Azizeh Athari, who he has called over the years as “badass” because she rode horses and shot rifles. Every mother’s day, every International women’s day (which also happens to be her birthday), there was a post on his Instagram celebrating his mother from whom he inherited “every ounce of integrity, creativity, and strength”.
Aristotle’s mother was a sportswoman from middle-east and had played volleyball in Asian Games. She died on 18 September 2019 at the age of 67 after suffering for a long time from Multiple Sclerosis.
His father also appeared occasionally on his social media. A photo of his father’s “mustache Renegade” was especially true. His father was 84 years of age. Apart from his father and mother, Aristotle was also close with his uncle (name unknown) who was in the air force.
We do not know if Aristotle Athari has any Greek heritage. He has middle eastern roots from his mother’s side but we do not know his father’s roots. There may be some Greek lineage on his father’s side.
While we are on the topic of roots, Aristotle has also mentioned that he has “wrestling roots”.

We mentioned that Aristotle is new to show business. Well, that is not entirely true for Aristotle has had over 10 years on the comedy scene and a fair bit of movie experience. He has never had the exposure of the kind that SNL will bring him, that fact remains true.
Anyway, his Linkedin says that Aristotle is a comedian, writer, and director. He is also an actor and had 18 credits as an actor. His most famous roles are Gabe in Silicon Valley, Derrick on The Coop. He also wrote, directed, and acted in a comedy special called “GOATFACE” with fellow comedians Hasan Minaj, Asif Ali, and Fahim Anwar.
