Brian Posehn has many ways to describe his startling appearance. He’s compared himself to Frankenstein’s monster, a yeti, and a sasquatch while claiming he’s “not a guy you would want to see coming out of the woods carrying a bag.” For the casual comedy fan, Brian’s fuzzy mug, sardonic delivery, and vertical fortitude are instantly recognizable from his string of mainstream TV roles in Just Shoot Me, Seinfeld, and Friends. But for legions of self-professed “comedy nerds,” Brian Posehn is a household name. From his 28-episode stint on the highly influential series Mr. Show with Bob and David to The Sarah Silverman Program, the Comedians of Comedy tour with fellow former niche comics Patton Oswalt and Zach Galifianakis, and even an appearance at The Gathering of the Juggalos, Posehn has developed a fervent following for his deprecating wit and hardcore metal attitude. Behind the mic, the genteel giant releases his pent-up love for pop culture, Satan, and comic books (including his recent gig co-writing Marvel’s Deadpool) as he fills The Abbey Pub with the awkward sound of devil-horned hands clapping.
