If there was an army of man-children out there, Ari Shaffir would rank at least a lieutenant. A staple of L.A.’s Comedy Store who has blown up in popularity through his viral “The Amazing Racist” YouTube videos and exposure on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Shaffir is quick to delve into the finer points of being Jewish and dish on his sex life. In fact, if he held a hammer in his hand every time he simulated masturbation on stage he would have built a wrap-around porch by now. While his raunchy material and open endorsement of pot and psychedelic mushrooms may alienate mainstream audiences, he’s used social media to attract like-minded fans to his shows, which in turn makes his performances refreshingly open and authentic. Shaffir’s credits include TBS’s Conan, Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, dozens of national commercials, and his own podcast, The Skeptic Tank.
