Lapari is Deputy Custodian at Greendale Community College and the right hand man of Head Custodian Bob Waite. His first appearance was in the Season Five episode "Analysis of Cork-Based Networking". He is portrayed by actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani.


Hoping to expedite the rehanging of the bulletin board, Annie and Professor Hickey showed up, uninvited, at the custodial mixer. In an attempt to screen unimportant visitors and matters from his boss, Lapari intercepted them at the door. When Annie found him immune to the charm that succeeded with the janitors Hickey pointed out a wood burnt sign made by Mr. Whitney, Greendale's woodshop professor. Lapari brags that the sign is indeed "a Whitney original". Hickey then makes a veiled threat regarding a powerful toilet in Whitney's home that might exceed plumbing code. Lapari catches his drift and, defeated, reluctantly introduces them to Chief Custodian, Bob Waite.
