Anthony Jeselnik, the supposed "Prince of Darkness," is as boldly arrogant as he is devilishly intelligent. Utilizing one-liners - greatly influenced by comedic greats Mitch Hedberg & Steven Wright - Jeselnik's offensive and scathingly dark sense of humor isn't for everyone. Something that he is aware of, Jeselnik himself - in his 2013 special, "Caligula" - proclaimed, "I assume you all knew who you were coming to see tonight. But if you didn't, you sure as sh*t know now." Anddd that was after rape joke number two. Really, the show is not for everyone, but if you do have a widespread sense of humor - or a pretty basic level of intelligence - it's hard not to only appreciate the jokes, but hold back your laughter as well. Many will label it as profane, unnecessary, unfunny, malicious, and even tasteless, but this is a brilliant new program that showcases the brightest - or darkest depending how you wanna call it - future of comedy.
