Fart and Wiener Jokes, Relapse Records

Helium Comedy Club is about to witness the hilarious assault of Comedy Metal God Brian Posehn!  He is tearing through town September 16-18, performing five shows filled with epic funny.  Posehn is so metal he is signed to Relapse Records,  a heavy metal label that is actually based in Upper Darby, PA.  His two records, Live In: Nerd Rage and Fart and Wiener Jokes, feature Posehn’s nerdy obsessions with music, comic books, and Star Wars and are punctuated with tales of marriage and fatherhood.  Posehn can appeal to a wide audience but if you are a nerd, Posehn will  be your hero.

Posehn has a laundry list of amazing television credits.  He is probably most recognizable for his role as Kevin in the sitcom Just Shoot Me.  He was also a writer and performer on the incredibly awesome sketch show Mr. Show.  More recently, Posehn was one of the original members of The Comedians of Comedy tour (along with Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, and Zach Galafianakis).  He was also a cast member of the prematurely-cancelled Sarah Silverman Program and received decent accolades for playing a non-stereotypical gay character.  Posehn has also made some film appearances, notably The Devil’s Rejects, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Funny People. Pick up his albums and you’ll hear Posehn’s foray into music.  Each album features two heavy metal tracks with Posehn on vocals and backed up by an all-star band that features Scott Ian of Anthrax.  So many talents!  But Posehn is really a stand-up at his core and always brings the funny every time he performs.

Helium Comedy is the city’s best site for stand-up comedy in the city.  The club is located at 2031 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103.  Posehn is performing September 16 at 8pm, September 17 at 8pm & 10:30pm, and September 18 at 8pm & 10:30pm.  Check out Helium’s website for ticket purchasing information.  ROCK ON!
