Anthony Jeselnik releases “Shakespeare”

Photobucket

One of the newest faces around the Comic Strip Live!, comedian Anthony Jeselnik recently released his first full-length major label comedy album in “Shakespeare.”

Released earlier this month by Comedy Central Records, the talented joke-craftsman designed this album so perfectly that it allows the listener the rare chance to peer inside the mind of one of the best comedy writers of our modern era.

Jeselnik has performed his own Comedy Central Presents half-hour special, on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (where for a stretch he served as a writer), Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” ” HBO’s “Down & Dirty with Jim Norton,” ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and more.

Congratulations Anthony!

To find out when you can catch Anthony at the Comic Strip, be sure to keep an eye on our schedule page.

Comic Strip talent taping half-hour specials!

All this last week, friends of the Comic Strip Live! have been taping their half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials!

Mike Vecchione, Chelsea Perretti, Jack Whitehall, Nate Bargatze, Michael Kosta and more friends of the club are taking the next huge step in their careers by taping 30 minutes of their best material for release on the Comedy Central network in 2011. Airdates and time have yet to be announced.

Many of the comics have stopped by the club in recent weeks to work out and organize their material before it forever is cemented in the annals of comedy history.

Congrats to all the comics on receiving this high honor!
