38. Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers

Anthony Jeselnik finally has a follow-up to his debut Caligula 2013 with Thoughts and Prayers that is the dark comedy you know you love to laugh with. Jeselnik started as a stand-up with a Comedy Central Presents special in 2009 before taking a job as a writer on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon before making a name for himself at the Comedy Central Roasts.

Jeselnik roasted Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen, Roseanne Barr and was a writer for the David Hasselhoff roast. Now check him out in this Netflix Original filmed from San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Theater. He’s not afraid of saying what you’re all thinking but are too scared to say in public. So just laugh as he dares to go well past politically incorrect. His humor is so dark that you cringe at the subject matter, but at the same time you’re laughing your ass off.
