Comedian Anthony Jeselnik: What You Can't Say at Roasts Here’s a rundown of his résumé: he’s written for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and was the first stand-up comedian to perform on the show. But, it was his breakout performance on the Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump that really got people talking. Since then, he’s become one of the most sought-after comics on the scene, and has lampooned other celebs like Charlie Sheen and Roseanne Barr.
