It’s hard to find anyone tackling taboo topics as smartly & sickeningly funny as Anthony Jeselnik. The stand-up comic and host of Comedy Central’s The Jeselnik Offensive goes for the jugular live October 19.
Jeselnik has been on a roll since his no-holds-barred performance in the 2011 Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump. That gig led to the development of his dark take on talk shows, The Jeselnik Offensive. Opening Saturday night's show is comedic dynamo Cameron Esposito. In addition to hosting the weekly L.A. comedy show and podcast, Put Your Hands Together, Esposito recently had a killer set on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and has bolstered her profile with appearances on Chelsea Lately.
Jeselnik and Esposito perform starting at 8 p.m. at Ovations Live at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino, 5040 West Wild Horse Pass in Chandler. Tickets to the 21-and-over show range from $27 to $60. For more info, visit www.anthonyjeselnik.com.
