He then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at Tulane University, and after graduation moved to Los Angeles, where he worked in various clubs doing stand-up comedy – as well as an accounting clerk without notable success, but earning enough to live on. However, in 2009 his self-written stand-up routine “Comedy Central Presents” brought him to notice, and he was employed as one of the first writers of the talk show “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” (2009) during its first season, on which he also performed on several occasions. This was a much needed boost to his net worth.

Still, Jeselnik decided to pursue his own stand-up career, and left the talk show in the spring of 2010.

It should be said that he has co – created the late night television program “The Jeselnik Offensive” (2013), hosted by Jeselnik himself. In 2015, he hosted the reality talent show “Last Comic Standing” on NBC as well as his stand-up special “Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers” (2015). What is more, he has released several live albums of which “Shakespeare” (2010) and “Caligula” (2013) have notably increased the total size of Jeselnik’s net worth.

1There's so many different comics. It's the same reason that Metallica doesn't have a responsibility to country music fans when they make an album. You know, why should I answer to you? I'm doing exactly what I think is funny, and I have an audience for it. There are plenty of other comedians out there you can go enjoy. I don't feel like I should change for someone's random opinion. And the people who hate me for certain things, there are people who love me for those exact same things. So you just have to let that go and I don't feel I need to respond to anyone's question about it.
2It's not that big of a deal. It's just comedy. They're just jokes.
3[on his type of comedy] You can't expect everyone to laugh or applaud you for doing edgy things. Sometimes you'll miss. But I think comedians are artists and there's a value in failure. It kind of works both ways between comedians and audiences. The audience has to understand that comedians are going to sometimes tell a joke that doesn't work out with dark subjects, and the comedian has to understand that sometimes they 'll fail and it's not the audience's fault for not getting it or loving it.
4Do whatever you want, whenever you want to do it and, as long as you look confident, no one will give you any shit. Put that on the back of a locket, then swallow it.
5The world is full of horrible things that will eventually get you and everything you care about. Laughter is a universal way to lift your head up and say: 'Not today, you bastards.'
