Comedy Central wants more of The Jeselnik Offensive and Nathan for You. Both shows have been renewed for second seasons as just announced by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, Comedy Central.
 
“Anthony and Nathan share dashing good looks and razor-sharp wit,” stated Alterman. “One of them is also a humanitarian.”
 
“I don’t know what joke Kent Alterman attempted in this press release, but I’m sure it’s terrible,” responded Jeselnik.
 
Season two of The Jeselnik Offensive starring Anthony Jeselnik will premiere 10 new episodes starting in July. Nathan for You will be back in 2014.
 
More on The Jeselnik Offensive:
 
Premiering in February, The Jeselnik Offensive has unleashed Jeselnik’s wicked take on must-see news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we all troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories. Recurring segments include “Sacred Cow,” during which Jeselnik takes on topics too sensitive to make a joke about, and then makes a bunch of jokes about, such as “cancer,” “missing children” and “bullying,” as well as audience-participation games including “Search and Destroy,” “Black Name Spelling Bee” and “Which Kind of Asian is This?”
 
Each episode also features two guest panelists to further bash pop culture and gleefully rip the veil of sanctity from off-limit topics in segments like “Best Worst Thing” and “Latino Voices,” as well as making Twitter a better place with “Defending Your Tweet.” Panelists from the first season have included Aziz Ansari, Billy Eichner, Abby Elliott, Pete Holmes, Nick Kroll, Jason Matzoukas, T.J. Miller, John Mulaney, Kristen Schaal and Amy Schumer.
 
More on Nathan for You:
 
In the docu-reality comedy Nathan for You which also premiered in February, Nathan Fielder uses his real-life business degree and prior real-life experiences to help struggling companies with strategies that no traditional business consultant would dare to attempt. Whether he’s coming up with ideas to create buzz for a yogurt shop by introducing a “poo” flavored offering, finding a legal way for a gas station to charge $1.75 per gallon and still make money, or creating a world-wide sensation with a viral video of a pig rescuing a goat to boost attendance at a petting zoo, Nathan goes as far as it takes to make his ideas come to life. But because of his unorthodox approach, his sincere efforts to do good don’t always work out how he’d hoped and often draw real people into an experience far beyond what they signed up for.
