Rashida Jones has said that it is a "joy" to work on Parks and Recreation.

The daughter of Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton has played nurse Ann Perkins throughout the show's life, which is now into its fourth season.

Of castmates Amy Poehler, Rob Lowe and Aziz Ansari, she told Parade: "It's honestly a joy to go to work because we just try to make each other laugh all day long.

"Every single person on the show is his or her own brand of hilarious. I'm constantly surprised at how talented and funny these people are."

Jones added: "In comedy, you really need each other. Comedy is like music, and the way to make the best music is to have skilled musicians in your band.

"It's hard to be funny on your own. I think that's kind of the thing I like the most about being in comedy - it's like a team sport. I love being part of an ensemble."

Parks and Recreation is currently airing in the US on NBC.
