American Comedian Anthony Jeselnik To Perform In Budapest On 4 September
American stand-up comedian, writer, actor, and producer, Anthony Jeselnik, will perform in Budapest on Tuesday 4 September 2018 at the Congress and World Trade Center.

The American follows two other big names from the industry who have performed in Budapest over the last few years: the British Eddie Izzard and Louis C. K, who visited prior to allegations of sexual misconduct.

Although he is less well-known, those who follow the industry recognize his name as he has been performing for over 15 years. He is best known in Hungary for his performances in Comedy Central Roasts, where comedians and their friends poke fun at famous people; Jeselnik was featured in many of these, including bits on Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen.

So far, he has three long stand-up shows: Shakespeare in 2010; his first hour-long special Caligula in 2013 and the 2015 show Thoughts and Prayers  which is available on Netflix.

Jeselnik worked as a writer for Jimmy Fallon and was the first stand-up comic to appear on Fallon’s show. In 2013, he had his own 18-part show titled The Jeselnik Offensive.

Jeselnik’s humor is quite dark and certainly not politically correct. He is known for his ironic misdirection, biting insults and arrogant demeanor – a stage persona that frequently takes amoral stances.

The Budapest performance is part of the comedian’s 2018 Funny Games tour which started this February in the United States. The tickets range from 4400 to 11600 forints at early bird prices, and the Facebook event is available here.

Date and time: 4 September, 8 pm

Venue: 
Budapest Congress Center
1123 Budapest, Jagelló út 1-3.

Online since 2014, this source states its aim as "to provide a complete, unbiased picture of Hungary”. It continues by acknowledging this “does not necessarily mean that our writers do not have their own opinions, sometimes reflected to a degree in the articles they publish”, and it's really worth readers keeping that in mind. Another stated aim is to become ‘the leading English-language news portal of Hungary’, a position held for 18 years by good old independent XpatLoop! Still our team has no issue with positively highlighting one or two useful articles published by Hungary Today here with permission for your interest.
