NEW YORK, July 19, 2013 – Deliciously dark comedy from Anthony Jeselnik, host of COMEDY CENTRAL’s “The Jeselnik Offensive,” is coming this fall when he hits the road in a nationwide stand-up tour. Anthony Jeselnik: Live begins on Thursday, September 12 at Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY and travels to more than 25 cities with more to be announced (full tour schedule at the end of this release).
Currently in its second season, “The Jeselnik Offensive” airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following new episodes of “Drunk History.” This weekly, topical series unleashes Jeselnik’s wicked take on must-see news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories.
Each episode also features two guest panelists to further bash pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics in segments like “Best Worst Thing” and “Latino Voices,” as well as making Twitter a better place with “Defending Your Tweet.” Panelists this season include Eric Andre, Doug Benson, Pete Holmes, Rob Huebel, David Koechner, Nick Kroll, Marc Maron, T.J. Miller, John Mulaney, Kumail Nanjiani, Jim Norton, Adam Pally, Joan Rivers, Amy Schumer and Casey Wilson.
