NEW YORK, September 10, 2013 – Deliciously dark comedy from Anthony Jeselnik, host of COMEDY CENTRAL’s “The Jeselnik Offensive,” hits the road in a nationwide stand-up tour, Anthony Jeselnik: Live which begins this
Thursday, September 12 at Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY and traveling to more than 25 cities. Anthony
Jeselnik: Live will conclude in New York City at Town Hall on Saturday, November 9 during the annual New York
Comedy Festival (full tour schedule at the end of this release).

“The Jeselnik Offensive” just wrapped its second season. 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 included Eric Andre, Dave Attell,
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.
