The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project Joins Comedy Central's Global Podcast Network On Tuesday, September 11

Check out the The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project Trailer Here:

NEW YORK, September 5, 2018 - Comedy Central today announced a multiplatform development deal with Anthony Jeselnik, the irreverent, iconoclastic comedian with whom the #1 brand in comedy previously collaborated for two seasons of The Jeselnik Offensive and his 2013 stand-up special, Caligula.

Under the deal, Jeselnik will star in and executive produce an untitled, half-hour TV series (premiere date TBA) and host an original weekly podcast, The Jeselnik and Rosenthal Vanity Project. The podcast will join Comedy Central's Global Podcast Network line-up on Tuesday, September 11, and is co-hosted by Jeselnik's best friend, Gregg Rosenthal (NFL Network analyst). It will have a digital video component to be released on Comedy Central social platforms. The deal also encompasses Jeselnik's role as one of the Season 3 judges for Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle, which concluded its season last month.

"Anthony's sardonic humor and critical eye are a big part of what makes him such an incredible comedian," said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Executive Vice Presidents and Co-Heads of Talent and Development, Comedy Central. "Those attributes are also why he's a perfect fit for the host's chair in his own series, the Roast Battle judge's chair, and the podcast booth."

"Sometimes the best move is a lateral move!" said Jeselnik.

The half-hour series will use Comedy Central's vast library of stand up as a springboard for conversation, insight and humor with well-known comics. The series' initial run will consist of six episodes. The podcast centers on Jeselnik and Rosenthal's shared appreciation for all things professional football.
