Anthony Jeselnik has a new comedy special coming out this month and the man is right on point once again. Jeselnik, perhaps best known for his appearances in multiple “Roast” specials on Comedy Central, is a sometimes-controversial comedian that knows all too well how to make people cringe with his jokes, but that’s exactly what makes him great.

Jeselnik’s new comedy special, Caligula, will premiere worldwide this coming January 13 on Comedy Central, airing at 10/9c.

See the clip above to get a glimpse at what you can expect from the standup special and pre-order the new album, Caligula, on iTunes here: tinyurl.com/awhhkob

New Comedy: “Jeff Ross Roasts America”

posted by Oscar August 14, 2012

One of America’s favorite roastmasters, Jeff Ross, has dropped his latest comedy special Jeff Ross Roasts America. Jeff Ross has roasted the likes of Pam Anderson, Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump, among others; but now the “Roadmaster General” is taking on the nation! As the comedy special’s description say of it:

“Ross roast his way across the USA; one city and one group of masochistic volunteer roastees at a time. Traveling through cities including Seattle; Toronto; Las Vegas; Miami and Madison; Ross roasts a statue of Abe Lincoln in Washington D.C.; gets roasted by John Rich in Nashville; and in Minneapolis; brings an old friend onstage to tell a very intimate story the way only Jeff Ross can. It all adds up to an incredible hour-long tribute to these United States; and the people that inhabit it.”

Buy the new special here.

The special drops on the same day that Ross’ new show, The Burn, is set to debut on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET.
