Comedian Anthony Jeselnik’s style of humor can be summed up as I’m going to think of the most horrible thing and make it funny. The man is a comedian’s comedian. While that august title is typically reserved for talented jokesmiths who aren’t successful, Jeselnik is. He’s been able to thread the needle. He doesn’t compromise his art.
The following clip is from Jesilnik’s 2015 special Thoughts and Prayers. It’s a somber story focusing on his grandmother and the Bible. He was hip-deep in a personal crisis, and learned an important lesson about faith and paying it forward.
