Anthony Jeselnik 

Review of "Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik" 9/15/19 by Suzanne
airs Fridays, 11/10 on Comedy Central

Anthony Jeselnik is one of my favorite comedians. I love his standup act, and I really enjoyed his previous Comedy Central show. I was annoyed when they canceled it.  This new show, though, is not good. It doesn't show his comedy very well.

His whole comedy routine is kind of mean and nasty, in an off-the-wall way. It's kind of shock humor because he says such outrageous things. A talk show host can't be mean and nasty.  For example, Howard Stern used to piss off his guests, even though they knew that he was just joking. He became a much better interviewer once he got more serious and stopped insulting his guests.

Jeselnik's new show is not as funny as Howard Stern's, unfortunately.  He doesn't have the type of chemistry that you need in a talk show host, and he's toned down his mean and nasty persona, so it just all falls flat. I'm guessing that a lot of his jokes are just off-the-cuff, which is not always a good thing.  He interviews his friends -- comedians like David Spade, Kristen Schall and Nick Kroll.  You would think they would make it even funnier, but they don't.

It's such a shame that Jeselnik's talents are being wasted on this new show.  He needs to stick to just being funny.

GOOD TALK WITH ANTHONY JESLENIK PREMIERES SEPTEMBER 6 ON COMEDY CENTRAL

SIX EPISODE COMEDIC INTERVIEW SERIES TO FEATURE
NICK KROLL, NATASHA LEGGERO, KUMAIL NANJIANI,
TIG NOTARO, KRISTEN SCHAAL, AND DAVID SPADE

Series is part of Jeselnik's Multiplatform Development Deal with Comedy Central

NEW YORK, June 25, 2019 Comedy Central, the #1 brand in comedy, today announced the greenlight of Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik, a comedic interview series that will premiere on September 6 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. Each episode will feature an interview with one of Anthony’s friends – who happen to be some of the best comedians in the business – as they discuss all things comedy. Over the course of six episodes, Jeselnik will sit down with David Spade, Kristen Schaal, Kumail Nanjiani, Natasha Leggero, Nick Kroll, and Tig Notaro.

In Good Talk, Jeselnik switches gears from his signature acerbic style for tongue-in-cheek interviews with his fellow comedians about their careers, influences and what it’s like to live in his massive shadow. Jeselnik and his guests center their extremely funny conversations around stand up, stories and bits and participate in elegantly bizarre studio segments.

Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik is part of Comedy Central’s multiplatform development deal with the irreverent, iconoclastic comedian, which includes 40 episodes of The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project podcast, since its fall 2018 launch. The #1 brand in comedy has also previously collaborated for two seasons of The Jeselnik Offensive and his 2013 stand-up special, Caligula.

Christie Smith and Meaghan Rady are executive producers of Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik, with Rady also serving as showrunner. Anne Harris, Tara Schuster and Jackie Sosa are executives in charge of the series for Comedy Central.

Driven by strong growth from primetime originals and late-night flagship The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Comedy Central in Q12019 recorded its best quarter since 2016 and became primetime’s fastest growing Top-20 network with Adults 18-34. Comedy Central recorded 1.4 billion total social streams in the quarter, up +12% from the previous quarter and up +10% from the same quarter a year ago.

Looking ahead, Comedy Central has a stacked slate that will feature new and returning series including: scripted comedies South Side, Awkwafina and Robbie; sketch-comedy series Alternatino with Arturo Castro; and Lights Out with David Spade.

Comedy Central gives audiences access to a world of super funny, personally relatable, culturally relevant, and provocative comedy that tells the funny truths of life, every day and everywhere.
