Anthony Jeselnik: Fire in the Maternity Ward, recorded last fall at New York’s Town Hall, debuts Tuesday, April 30, on Netflix.
Netflix hasn’t provided details about the stand-up special, but as the following clip suggests, you can expect Jeselnik to serve up more of his signature dark humor:
Jeselnik’s Comedy Central Roast appearance in 2010 – during which he jabbed at notoriously thin-skinned man-of-the-hour Donald Trump – helped put him on the national map.
On his 2013 Comedy Central show, The Jeselnik Offensive, he and fellow comedians sought laughs from such seemingly hands-off topics as cancer and necrophilia. You can rent all 18 episodes individually from $1.99 on Amazon and Vudu.
These days an innocuous but inartfully worded tweet can cause an online firestorm, making Jeselnik’s humor seem more risky than ever.
