    Has anyone caught this show on Comedy Central?

    As the name implies it is over the top humor.

    Anthony Jeselnik is one of the comedians on the Comedy Central roasts.
    He seems a little out of his element on the roasts, but he is great on this show.

    I will check it out.

    BTW, many of the Comedy Central Roasts are on Netflix and are uncensored. Funny as sh*t. Bob Sagat, William Shatner, and Flav-O-Flav are some of the funniest, I mean tears of laughter.

    He's actually in his element in the roasts, its just that EVERYONE is going for one liners and shock humor, and that makes his stuff seem more normal.

    Saw his standup at the Mirage and it was pretty funny (and horribly offensive of course).

    Only seen a little of the show. Found it meh. See what he's trying to do but I think it will grow old pretty quick.

    Actually, that is a better way of putting it.

    His style and delivery doesn't quite fit.

    My partner turned me on to this show. It is hillarious. I am a fan now. He was on Leno the other night, and was pretty funny there too.

    I tried watching. It bored me, and I was surprised how amateur he seemed. Two episodes was enough for me. Glad you like it, though.

    Saw the first episode and didn't particularly care for it. The Burn with Jeffrey Ross is way better, in my opinion. Jeselnik was on The Burn and was funny but his show didn't resonate with me.

    I really like the show. It's definately a little different, but he's able to try new things out because of his confidence and charisma.

    And I think he's perfect for roasts becaue he's masterful at delivery and insults, which also works nicely on his show.
