Unofficial dark lord of stand-up Anthony Jeselnik will test audiences at Royal Oak Music Theatre

His moral compass may be loose and his onstage arrogance is downright unnerving. But only one man is fit to make us laugh... only to make us feel totally guilty and disgusting for having laughed. Comedian and unofficial dark lord of stand-up Anthony Jeselnik is not for the faint of heart nor the thin-skinned. In fact, Jeselnik’s morbid routine would probably make Satan writhe. Too soon? Too much? Never is this the case for Jeselnik, who is one of the most cleverly offensive freaks on the comedy scene. NSFW doesn’t apply here. Jeselnik is Not Safe For Anything Ever (and we love it).

Anthony Jeselnik will perform at Royal Oak Music Theatre on Friday, March 2 at 8 p.m.; 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets are $32, $40 day of show.
