Ari Shaffir
  • West End

Stand-up comedian, shroomer, podcaster and Netflixer 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 comic&a real force to be reckoned with." Last year, 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 hasn't been seen since George Carlin's 1972 release of FM & AM. Decider.com called Shaffir's Netflix debut "positively audacious." Shaffir also created and hosted the Comedy Central storytelling show, This is Not Happening; co-starred with Zach Galifianakis, Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm in Keeping Up With The Joneses and regularly guests on the Joe Rogan Experience. He is the host of 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.
