This week in press releases: Anthony Jeselnik

This just arrived via the teletype machine. Anthony Jeselnik is coming to town, thanks to the good folks at Just For Laughs. I haven't seen Jeselnik's new TV show but I hear it's good. I do have his hilarious CD, Shakespeare, though. And I saw him before he really hit it big back in 2008 when he opened for Sarah Silverman at the River Rock Show Theatre. Back then, I was blown away at his great joke-writing, and the disconnect between his smiling boyish good looks and the darkness of his material. Of course, now everyone knows what to expect. But seeing it for the first time without any foreknowledge was pretty great. I got that chance to hang a bit with him the night before and then again after the show and he's a super nice guy, too. Maybe he doesn't want that image of him out there, but I think most people understand that persona on stage is just that – a persona.
