NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthony Jeselnik brings his disarming
and cool demeanor to his new weekly COMEDY CENTRAL half-hour series, "The
Jeselnik Offensive," as he takes on the latest bizarre news and pop culture
happenings ripped straight from the headlines,. The 10-episode series
premieres on Tuesday, February 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following an all-new
episode of "Tosh.0." Fellow comedians Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer will join
Anthony as his first guest panelists.

Known to COMEDY CENTRAL viewers from his blistering appearances on recent
Roasts of Charlie Sheen (video clip) and Donald Trump (video clip), Jeselnik
unleashes his razor-sharp take on each week's must-see news ripped from the
headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more
shocking and lurid stories. Two panelists will join Jeselnik to further bash
pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics;
additional comedians scheduled to join Jeselnik this season include Billy
Eichner, Nick Kroll, Jason Matzoukas, T.J. Miller, and Kristen Schaal. "The
Jeselnik Offensive" is written and executive produced by Jeselnik and head
writer, Tom Johnson. Krysia Plonka and Mosaic's Christie Smith are also
Executive Producers. Jim Sharp and Monika Zielinska are the Executives in
Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

The mischievous Jeselnik, once dubbed "the Satanic prince of stand-up, a
black-hearted joke slinger with a ferocious and unstoppable will to power" by
the A.V. Club and "a bad man" (meant in the nicest way) by Conan O'Brien, has
written for and appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and has appeared on
"The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (video clip), as well as "John Oliver's New
York Stand-up Show" (video clip). Jeselnik recently secured his reputation as
the dark prince of comedy in his hilarious one-hour stand-up special for
COMEDY CENTRAL, " Anthony Jeselnik: Caligula," which premiered on January 13.
His comedy album, "Shakespeare," was released on COMEDY CENTRAL Records in
2010 and named Comedy Album of the Year by Punchline Magazine. Jeselnik
received an Emmy^® nomination last year for Outstanding Writing For A Variety,
Music or Comedy Special for COMEDY CENTRAL's "A Night of Too Many Stars: An
Overbooked Concert for Autism Education."
