If you’re looking for something fun to do tonight, get tickets to Anthony Jeselnik at Tempe Improv. I saw the dark stand-up comedian there last night, and his show was hysterical–though yes, it has its fair share of jokes about topics some would argue you should never joke about–including The Holocaust, rape and dead babies.

Some may wonder how an audience can laugh at things like that. Jeselnik has this charming boy-next-door demeanor that somehow makes you still like him even though he’s saying some really messed-up, twisted things. He was a stand-out star at the Comedy Central roasts of Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump, and if you liked him there, you’ll love his stand-up act.

Tonight, he has shows at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. For tickets, go here.

If you go, stop at America’s Taco Shop before you go. The restaurant is already one of my favorites from downtown Phoenix, and with the same menu in the Tempe location, you can’t go wrong. The bean and cheese burritos are my fave, and the chips and salsa are great!
