Anthony Jeselnik back hosting a new series on Comedy Central: Good Talk!

Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik, a comedic interview series with comedians about comedy, will premiere on Comedy Central this coming Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

Comedy Central announced the six-week series today. Jeselnik’s first-season guests: David Spade, Kristen Schaal, Kumail Nanjiani, Natasha Leggero, Nick Kroll, and Tig Notaro.

In Good Talk, Jeselnik switches gears from his signature acerbic style for tongue-in-cheek interviews with his fellow comedians about their careers, influences and what it’s like to live in his massive shadow. Jeselnik and his guests center their extremely funny conversations around stand up, stories and bits and participate in elegantly bizarre studio segments.

Jeselnik previously had come up through Comedy Central thanks to performances on its Comedy Central Roasts, his 2013 stand-up special, Caligula, and two seasons of The Jeselnik Offensive. He currently has a podcast with Comedy Central, The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project. This new talk show is part of his development deal with the network.
