Comedy Central is staying in the Anthony Jeselnik and Nathan Fielder business.
Freshman series “The Jeselnik Offensive” and “Nathan for You” have both been given second seasons by the Viacom-owned network.
Ten new episodes of “The Jeselnik Offensive” will begin in July, and the same number of “Nathan for You” episodes will start in 2014.
“Anthony and Nathan share dashing good looks and razor-sharp wit. One of them is also a humanitarian,” Kent Alterman, Comedy Central's president of content development and original programming said in a statement announcing the news.
"Sounds good," Fielder said, with Jeselnik adding: “I don't know what joke Kent Alterman attempted in this press release, but I'm sure it's terrible."
Alterman has been aggressive about getting more original series on the network. Both shows debuted in February.
“The Jeselnik Offensive” is exec produced by Jeselnik, head writer Tom Johnson, Krysia Plonka and Christie Smith of Mosaic. It features audience-participation games, Jeselnik’s take on news and segments with guest panelists like Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll and Kristen Schaal.
“Nathan for You” is a docu-reality comedy exec produced by Fielder, Michael Koman and Dave Kneebone. Fielder draws on his business background to give struggling businesses off the wall strategies to “help” them.
