011: Anthony Jeselnik…The Hines Ward of Comedy?

Listen to this episode (0:53:55)

Anthony Jeselnik is one of the most brilliant comics on the scene today.  His slicing sarcasm and cocky delivery barely mask his delight at hearing laughs and groans from the audience.  His facial expression implies that he knows a secret that we don’t, and if you’re not smart enough to figure it out, then that’s on you.  He also happens to be a hardcore Hines Ward fan, having grown up in Pittsburgh.  His edgy, fearless comedy is akin to “going over the middle” in the entertainment world.  We chat about growing up a Steelers fan, how long it takes him to develop a new act (You won’t believe it…), what it’s like to really bomb on stage, and the mindset Anthony adopts with his comedy career.  (Hint:  He hustles, and outworks everyone)

Check out Anthony’s #1 Comedy Special on Netflix, “Thoughts & Prayers”.

    I love listening to your all your podcasts. Your laid back informative style and words of wisdom on all parts of everyday life are enjoyable.

    I also want to thank you for signing by big gold banner about the Steelers and the Bus’s 2005 Super Bowl run this past Sunday in Chicago. Did you get a chance to read it?
