Anthony Jeselnik is trying to get a rise out of you. The former Fallon writer has a knack for making people laugh at appropriate times at inappropriate subjects. “I try to say the worst thing you could and get away with it,” he told a Michigan newspaper before LaughFest. “Once people get that I’m saying awful things for a reason, it takes away that barrier. It gets them to laugh about domestic violence or breast cancer.” In short, Jeselnik’s humor is incredibly dark and deeply twisted and he’s going to make you laugh.
