Tarzi Afshar (Persian: طرزی افشار, Azerbaijani: طرزی افشار) was a 17th-century Safavid poet who wrote in the Persian and Azerbaijani languages. He is the author of a small divan of "humorous poems", written in an amalgam of Persian and Azerbaijani known as Tarzilik. Later, for some time, this type of poetry became relatively popular at the Safavid court in Isfahan. Tarzi Afshar originally hailed from Rey.
