Jeselnik

When I was fresh out of college and too young to know better, I asked myself what my dream job would be. The answer was a joke writer. I've never looked back.

Based in Los Angeles, Jeselnik is a stand-up comedian, TV personality and former writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He has a weekly topical series, "The Jeselnik Offensive," premiering on Comedy Central on February 19.

PHOTOGRAPHED AT THE LAUGH FACTORY

I'm inspired by making people laugh at subjects that should make them cry.

My first job was as a swim instructor. I got fired for dunking little kids' heads underwater when they weren't expecting it.
