Anthony Jeselnik

Jeselnik delivers most of his jokes with the same even-paced, slightly-mocking voice. Often, the punchline is his knack for making genuine questions sound completely disingenuous.

Kirsten Dunst in 'On Becoming a God in Central Florida'

“On Becoming a God in Central Florida”’s pilot is a promising springboard into future explorations of capitalism and the rehabilitating effects of MLM companies. Oh, and maybe a Kirsten Dunst performance of a lifetime.
