Yassir Lester from "Snack-Off" is one of the judges in the MTV reality cooking competition series.

Stand-up comedian and writer Yassir Lester has performed with some of the biggest names in the industry including Adam Sandler, Daniel Tosh, Bill Burr, Pablo Francisco and countless others. Lester is a regular at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood, California, The Punchline in Atlanta, Georgia, and The Improv comedy clubs across the country.

On television, Lester provided the voice of the recurring role of the animation intern in Adult Swim's animated series "Robot Chicken." He also also appeared numerous times on the Pivot talk show "TakePart Live."

Lester has been featured in the "All Things Comedy" podcast, where he often drops by to hang out and tell stories of coming up in the L.A. scene, from his days of working the door at the Melrose Improv to terrible road gigs. The podcast conversation then turns to what it was like growing up in Georgia, childhood stories about lies you tell to look cool in front of your friends, losing your virginity and more.

Lester almost drowned to death at a pizza party when he was seven. Now he tells jokes about pizza.
