After seven seasons and 123 episodes, Parks and Recreation is coming to an end on Tuesday night. But rather than solemnly awaiting the sitcom’s farewell, its variety of stars have decided to celebrate what has been one of quirkiest, warmest, and funniest shows on television.
And comedian Ben Schwartz, who portrayed the cult character of Jean-Ralphio throughout the series’ run, has been commemorating Parks And Recreation‘s legacy by uploading numerous behind the scenes pictures from its shoot to his Instagram account over the last month.
You can check out some of these pictures, which he uploaded to his Rejected Jokes feed, below.
And you probably should, because they see Schwartz stood alongside the likes of Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Audrey Plaza, and Rashida Jones, while they’re each rather delightful in their own unique way, too. Any self-respecting Parks & Recreation fan should head over to his page to instantly check them out.
Meanwhile, you can also re-live some one of many of Ben Schwartz’s finest moments on Parks & Recreation by watching the video below.
The final ever episodes of Parks and Recreation are now etched in emotion after the death of Harris Wittels last week. The writer and comedian not only appeared on Parks and Recreation in a supporting role, but he wrote extensively for the comedy, too.
This immediately led to an outpouring of emotion from some of Parks and Recreation‘s most esteemed comedians. Aziz Ansari wrote a heart-felt blog post honoring Wittels, while on the night of his death, Amy Poehler told a gathered crowd where she was receiving a unite4:humanity award, “Today, I lost a friend. I lost a dear, young man in my life who was struggling with addiction and died.”
It’s now known if NBC or the show will honor Wittels in any fashion during Parks and Recreation‘s final episode. You will be able to see for yourself when it bids farewell on NBC on Tuesday night at 8 p.m.
