Anthony Jeselnik makes a triumphant return to television when his new series, Good Talk, premieres Sept. 6 on Comedy Central.

“The show’s so easy to make, it got me back on television. And baby, I hate television,” says Jeselnik, whose original late-night comedy show was canceled in 2013.

In Good Talk With Anthony Jeselnik, the stand-up comedian sits down with fellow comedians—Nick Kroll, Natasha Leggero, Kumail Nanjiani, Tig Notaro, Kristen Schaal and David Spade—to discuss their careers, influences and “what it’s like to live in his massive shadow,” the network says.

His guests will also “participate in elegantly bizarre studio segments” as they poke fun at each other and answer grueling questions, like whether or not Nanjiani would cast a younger version of his wife in his life story.

Christie Smith and showrunner Meaghan Rady are executive producers. Anne Harris, Tara Schuster and Jackie Sosa are executives in charge of the series for Comedy Central.

The six-episode first season of Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik premieres Sept. 6 at 11/10c.
