Anthony Jeselnik          

Stand-Up Comedian; Host of "The Jeselnik Offensive"

Anthony Jeselnik was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He earned a BA in English Literature from Tulane University and resides in Los Angeles. Anthony's pitch-black sense of humor, brilliant joke writing and devilish charm have made him a smash hit in the alternative comedy community and one of Daily Variety's "Comedy's 10 to Watch."

Anthony has appeared as a stand-up on "Down and Dirty with Jim Norton," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Premium Blend," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Last Call with Carson Daly." Anthony has been a member of the writing staff of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," and he wrote for Sarah Silverman for her 2010 appearances on the "MTV Movie Awards," "MTV Video Music Awards" and Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars." Anthony also joined the dais for the 2011 "Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump."

Anthony has performed to tremendous response at the Bumbershoot Music and Comedy Festival in Seattle, as well as HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. Anthony's first album, "Shakespeare," was named Punchline Magazine's Comedy Album of 2010, and The Onion AV Club noted that "Jeselnik's freshman album radiates the confidence of an experienced veteran."

Jeselnik currently hosts "The Jeselnik Offensive," a weekly, topical series on Comedy Central.
