In honor of Anthony Jeselnik‘s upcoming Paramount show, we decided to take a look back at some of the comedian’s best tweets. For the uninitiated, Jeselnik is a comic whose caustic one liners delivered with an otherworldly confidence have made him one of the most exciting acts performing today. You may know him for his Comedy Central roasts or from The Jeselnik offensive which he created. He’s also produced the critically acclaimed album Shakespeare and the one hour special Caligula and was a crowd favorite at the 2013 Moontower Fest. Now without any further ado (and really, who wants more ado at this point), here are some of the comedian’s best tweets.

Did James Gandolfini really die? Or did it just cut to black?
