At last summer’s Coachella, comedian and self-proclaimed “dork for 30 years” Brian Posehn summed himself up this way: “I have four hobbies—I play Xbox Live, I smoke pot, I masturbate, and I cry.” But when he’s not doing those things, he’s typically hard at work making us laugh in books (check out his 2006 graphic novel The Last Christmas), in films (catch him in the upcoming documentary Nerdcore Rising), and on TV (The Sarah Silverman Program, Just Shoot Me, Mr. Show). Tonight see Posehn live at Comix, where he’ll perform his hilariously raunchy stand-up routine, which typically includes bits about strippers, metal bands, and the pros and cons of being a really big guy.
