Stand-up comedian and actor Ari Shaffir describes his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. Now with two one-hour stand-up specials and his own late night television series, Ari and his “gifted comic unyielding” are becoming “a real force to be reckoned with” (LA Weekly).
Most recently, Comedy Central premiered Ari’s second one-hour stand-up special, Paid Regular, as well as his first special, Passive Aggressive, which originally premiered on Chill.com. Ari’s stand-up album Revenge for the Holocaust went to number 1 on iTunes and Amazon.com the week of its premiere. Currently, Ari can be seen on his weekly story-telling series, This Is Not Happening, on Comedy Central.
In addition to his television and stand-up projects, Ari also hosts the wildly popular podcast, The Skeptic Tank. Ari is a regular panel guest on the popular TV series @midnight and has appeared on Comedy Underground with Dave Attell. He has also been featured on Showtime’s The Green Room with Paul Provenza, Comedy Central’s Brody Stevens: Enjoy It, HBO’s Down & Dirty with Jim Norton, and in the film InAPPropriate Comedy. Ari performs stand-up to sold out crowds nationwide and has been featured at many prestigious comedy festivals.
