Anthony Jeselnik releases “Shakespeare”


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!
