Anthony Jeselnik made a name for himself with his zingy one-liners and scathing delivery on Comedy Central's roasts, and he brings his signature style in the devilishly humorous Shakespeare. Jeselnik tends to prefer quick jokes, which would seem to give Shakespeare a rapid-fire quality were it not for his sly, almost indolent delivery. His laid-back quality only augments his caustic jokes, especially when he skirts subject matter that could be deemed offensive. It's here when Jeselnik's persona makes perfect sense: Just as he reaches the borderline to bad taste, he comes across as an imp. And then he goes further.
Jeselnik is an exceptional stand-up comedian who performs all over the country and extensively in Los Angeles and New York City. He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Last Call with Carson Daly, Down and Dirty with Jim Norton and his own special, "Comedy Central Presents: Anthony Jeselnik.” He was featured in HBO"s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2006 and Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival in 2008 and 2010. Jeselnik was named one of Variety's "10 Comics To Watch” in 2008 and he was featured on Comedy Central's Hot List as one of the hottest comics of 2009. Jeselnik was most recently a writer and performer on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Very edgy and fresh. Extremely funny.
