This guy was a dick. He kicked off at a waiter coz he wanted to order for his date. What a horror of a human and you both should have called him out on ordering for a woman he had just met. I'm sure there wasn't a second date. Unbelievable

All of these people complaining is hilarious. That's Jeselnik is a big stand-up comedian here and if you don't like how he is then don't have him on. It's like having Don Rickles on and complaining that he keeps insulting you.

Worst episode so far. Bored of the nobody American ‘comedians’. Turned off after 15 mins when he was ordering for his date and kicking off at a waiter - this one must of been recorded in the 1950’s.
