NEW YORK, January 30, 2013 – 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.

    What’s the point? Jeselnik is only funny when he’s uncensored, and Comedy Central is King of Censorship.

    I like Jeselnik’s Roast appearances but hosting a weekly show is something else. We’ll see.
