NEW YORK, January 30, 2013 - Anthony Jeselnik brings his disarming and cool demeanor to his new weekly COMEDY CENTRAL half-hour series, "The Jeselnik Offensive," as he takes on the latest bizarre news and pop culture happenings ripped straight from the headlines,. The 10-episode series premieres on Tuesday, February 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following an all-new episode of "Tosh.0." Fellow comedians Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer will join Anthony as his first guest panelists.

Known to COMEDY CENTRAL viewers from his blistering appearances on recent Roasts of Charlie Sheen (video clip) and Donald Trump (video clip), Jeselnik unleashes his razor-sharp take on each week's must-see news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories. Two panelists will join Jeselnik to further bash pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics; additional comedians scheduled to join Jeselnik this season include Billy Eichner, Nick Kroll, Jason Matzoukas, T.J. Miller, and Kristen Schaal. "The Jeselnik Offensive" is written and executive produced by Jeselnik and head writer, Tom Johnson. Krysia Plonka and Mosaic's Christie Smith are also Executive Producers. Jim Sharp and Monika Zielinska are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

The mischievous Jeselnik, once dubbed "the Satanic prince of stand-up, a black-hearted joke slinger with a ferocious and unstoppable will to power" by the A.V. Club and "a bad man" (meant in the nicest way) by Conan O'Brien, has written for and appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and has appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (video clip), as well as "John Oliver's New York Stand-up Show" (video clip). Jeselnik recently secured his reputation as the dark prince of comedy in his hilarious one-hour stand-up special for COMEDY CENTRAL, "Anthony Jeselnik: Caligula," which premiered on January 13. His comedy album, "Shakespeare," was released on COMEDY CENTRAL Records in 2010 and named Comedy Album of the Year by Punchline Magazine. Jeselnik received an Emmy(R) nomination last year for Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music or Comedy Special for COMEDY CENTRAL's "A Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education."

"The Jeselnik Offensive" Web site features show clips, exclusive video, and behind-the-scenes action, and Jeselnik will live tweet each week on show nights (@AnthonyJeselnik). "The Jeselnik Offensive" Facebook page will be updated daily throughout the season and fans can follow the show's tumblr at thejeselnikoffensive.tumblr.com for additional show info and an inside look into Jeselnik's mind. For a special holiday treat, fans will be able to send anti-Valentine's Day E-cards care of "The Jeselnik Offensive" at cc.com/valentine in February.

Episodes of "The Jeselnik Offensive" will be available in SD and HD the day after air on iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, Sony PlayStation Store, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub.
