Seasonal Special Happenings

A Novelist Idea

When: Fri., March 13 2015

ittsburgh-based comedian Anthony Jeselnik initially wanted to be a novelist. It wasn’t until he relocated to Los Angeles that he discovered there were different avenues for a writer. Jeselnik has written for countless shows including Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. His own show, The Jeselnik Offensive, ran on Comedy Central for two seasons in 2013. Jeselnik’s style of comedy is dark, obscure and witty. He actually left his job writing for Fallon because so many of his jokes were turned down for being too dark. He always loved roasts and called them “the Super Bowl of comedy.” It was only fitting that he got his big break on The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump. Immediately following his performance, Comedy Central offered him a one-hour special. Jeselnik performs tonight at 8 at the Ohio Theater. Tickets for the performance are $32. (Siegel)
