      EVENT DETAILS
      Ari Shaffir


      Stand-up comedian, podcaster and actor ARI SHAFFIR describes his comedy as a puppet show--but way filthier and without the puppets. The New York native grew up Orthodox Jewish, spent 2 years in a yeshiva in Israel, and came back to America to lose his religion and become a comic. LA Weekly has called Shaffir a gifted unyielding comica real force to be reckoned with.This July, Shaffir released two Netflix specials called Double Negative which is presented in two 45 minute episodes called Children and Adulthood. Self-described as his version of a Smashing Pumpkins Double Album, this type of double header release hasnt been seen since George Carlins 1972 release of FM & AM. In Children Shaffir discusses the pressure he is getting from his family and friends to have kids, and why he is getting more and more thoughts in his head about why he doesnt want to do that and in Adulthood, he discusses the freedoms of being child-free. Decider.com called Shaffirs Netflix debut positively audacious. Shaffir recently finished 3 seasons as the host and co-creator of Comedy Centrals weekly storytelling series This is Not Happening. He was a regular panel guest on the series @midnight, and TBSs Conan. In 2016, Shaffir co-starred Zach Galifianakis, Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm in Twentieth Century Foxs comedy Keeping Up With The Joneses. Shaffir also hosts the wildly popular podcast, Skeptic Tank, a weekly interview show where he chats with everyone from parents to comedians to prostitutes to help better understand humanity and also to make fart jokes. The podcast is consistently among the top-rated podcasts on iTunes and averages over 100,000 downloads per week. Shaffir is also an avid sports fan and gets together with Sam Tripoli and Jayson Thibault once a week to record the Punch Drunk Podcast. Dubbed an Asian massage for the real sports fans, by The Podcast Tribune, these three stand-up comics share their sports thoughts, arguments, stories, fights, and bets.In the past 5 years, Shaffir has released two hour-long standup specials on Comedy Central entitled Paid Regular and Passive Aggressive. Prior to these popular specials, Shaffirs standup album Revenge for the Holocaust went to #1 on both iTunes charts and Amazon.com the week of its premiere. He continues to perform standup to sold-out crowds nationwide and has been featured at Montreals prestigious Just for Laughs Festival, San Francisco SketchFest, SXSW, the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.
