Anthony Jeselnik favors humor as dark as the cinematography on Game of Thrones (“The Long Night” episode was in night mode, right?). The stand-up comedian’s new comedy specialFire in the Maternity Ward, is now streaming on Netflix.

This will be the evil-spirited jokester’s first special since 2015’s Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers, also released on Netflix. In a recent tweet, the bearded Jeselnik made some brave claims about his new material: “It’s gonna be the best special you see in 2019, even if you go back and watch other comedy specials from previous years. And I invite you to watch other comedy specials if just for the comparison.”

Let’s take Jeselnik up on his bold offer by checking out some other Netflix comedy specials, shall we? It’s dark as shit and we love it.
