With friends like these …

Aziz Ansari caught a piggyback ride from pal Jennifer Lawrence at The Wayfarer for the “Saturday Night Live” afterparty early Sunday.

The “Parks and Recreation” star clung on to the “Hunger Games” beauty’s shoulders as they navigated their way through a paparazzi-filled path.

While Ansari, 32, beat the crisp fall breeze in a leather jacket and dark jeans, Lawrence, 25, flashed her abs of steel in a cropped gray sweater and loose slacks.

The duo, who are currently shooting “Passengers” with Lawrence’s BFF Amy Schumer in Atlanta, took some time away from the set to support their friend as she made her “SNL” debut on Saturday.
