The Marshall Artists Series starts soon and a nationally known comedy act will kick off the show.

Comedian, Anthony Jeselnik, gained popularity from channels like Comedy Central and his stint on the popular show, The Last Comic Standing. The comedian is set to be the first act for this year’s Marshall Artists Series. Jeselnik will perform on October 1, 2015 before country artist Kacey Musgrave comes to the stage on October 2.

“Last year we had 2 shows to kick off the season and although it may not always be that way, that is how it has worked out the last 2 seasons,” said Angela Jones, Marketing Director of the Marshall Artists Series.

Tickets for Jeselnik go on sale this Thursday at noon in the Artists Series Box Office.

“I have never been to a comedy show and I am excited because I know Anthony Jeselnik and I have seen his work before.””

Some students are waiting for the Artists Series to come around for a chance to see some of their favorite acts.

“I have never been to a comedy show and I am excited because I know Anthony Jeselnik and I have seen his work before,” said Breckin Wells, Marshall University Student.

Wells says she first heard about Jeselnik when he hosted The Last Comic Standing and appeared on Comedy Central. Wells says she also became a fan because she found out he used to date another national comedian, Amy Schumer.

“I fell more in love with him when I saw he and Schumer perform together,” Wells said.

In addition to his roles on The Last Comic Standing and Comedy Central, Jeselnik is also known for his appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and his own show, The Jeselnik Offensive.

Jones thinks this year’s Artists Series has a little something for everyone.
