Anthony Jeselnik coming to Civic Theatre June 28

Posted By on Mon, Jan 22, 2018 at 5:33 PM


Comedian Anthony Jeselnik — Tulane alum and darkly funny standup comic — will bring his mordant observations to the Civic Theater Jun. 28. He last appeared here in a two-night stand at Harrah's New Orleans.

Jeselnik gained fame with his performances on the Comedy Central roasts of Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump, as well as on his own Comedy Central show The Jeselnik Offensive and a Netflix special, Thoughts and Prayers. Of the Trump roast, he told The Hollywood Reporter:
"Trump's one rule was 'don't say I have less money then I say I do,'" Jeselnik tells THR. "His kids were fair game. His wife was fair game. And I remember one of my jokes was about his casino business failing, and I could feel that hurt coming off of him. He didn't like that joke, and I told a joke about people being glad he has cancer," he says in amazement. 
He never tried comedy in New Orleans, he told Gambit in a 2013 interview, but "New Orleans is my favorite city in the world," he says. "I come back twice a year just to eat. I used to come back just to drink, but I got older."
