Here are the best Anthony Jeselnik jokes, ranked by comedy fans everywhere. Anthony Jeselnik is without a doubt one of the darkest comedians working today. All you have to do is watch one of his stand-up specials for two minutes to see just how dark he'll go. His stand-up sets also utilize insults, non sequiters and ironic misdirections. There are truly no other comedians around now doing quite what Jeselnik has perfected. He has made plenty of great one-liners over the years, but which ones really stand out?

After bursting onto the stand-up scene, Jeselnik got his very own Comedy Central show called The Jeselnik Offensive. On the show, Jeselnik and a couple of panelists would tackle some of the hardest-hitting stories in the news while providing his signature dark humor. He's also been host of Last Comic Standing and has released several outstanding comedy specials, including Thoughts and Prayers and Fire in the Maternity Ward.

Chocolate Addiction

My girlfriend loves to eat chocolate. She’s always eating chocolate, and she likes to joke she’s got a chocolate addiction. "Get me away from those Hershey's bars. I’m addicted to them." It’s really annoying. So I put her in a car and I drove her downtown. And I pointed out a crack addict. And I said, "Do you see that, honey? Why can’t you be that skinny?"

Kid in Africa

I've got a kid in Africa that I feed, that I clothe, that I school, that I inoculate for 75 cents a day. Which is practically nothing compared to what it cost to send him there.
