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)
