Here are some ways people have described Anthony Jeselnik:
“Jeselnik… has rapidly emerged as the Satanic prince of stand-up, a black-hearted joke-slinger with a ferocious and unstoppable will to power.” –Nathan Rabin, Head Writer–A.V. Club
“…a bad man.” -Conan O’Brien
“I’m Anthony Jeselnik, get the fuck out of my way.
Look at me, I’ve got really good hair, I’m better than you in every way.
Not only am I funny, but I’ve got really good hair.
If comedy didn’t work out for me, I could be a hair model.
Go fuck yourself, move out of the way, I’m looking for the stairs to the stage.” -Sung by Todd Glass
