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 comic…a 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 hasn’t been seen since George Carlin’s
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 doesn’t
want to do that and in Adulthood, he discusses the freedoms of being child-free. Decider.com called
Shaffir’s Netflix debut “positively audacious.”
Shaffir recently finished 3 seasons as the host and co-creator of Comedy Central’s weekly
storytelling series This is Not Happening. He was a regular panel guest on the series @midnight, and
TBS’s Conan.
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, Shaffir’s 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
Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs Festival, San Francisco SketchFest, SXSW, the Edinburgh Comedy
Festival, The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.
