For its latest edition of “73 Questions,” Vogue caught up with Aziz Ansari in his Los Angeles home to learn a little bit more about the standup comedian.

For starters, he’s got an curious favorite Tinder pickup line that he sourced from his inner circle: “Going to Whole Foods, want me to pick you up anything?”

While some of his answers aren’t too surprising (he’s not afraid of public speaking), others are definitely cool. For instance, he learned to speak fluent Italian while filming Master of None season 2, and his ’90s AOL screen name was megadeath45.

Perhaps most interestingly, though, he ranks Kanye West‘s albums from his favorite to least favorite—a game people were playing on Twitter back in January. His No. 1 spot is a tie between Watch the Throne and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Complex’s No. 3 and No. 1 picks, respectively.

Master of None‘s new season hits Netflix May 12.
