A contemporary of comics Patton Oswalt and Zach Galifinakis, Brian Posehn is like an awesome older brother who introduces you to Judas Priest and Dungeons & Dragons. The actor/comedian/musician, known for his roles in NBCs "Just Shoot Me” and HBOs "Mr. Show,” can currently be seen in Comedy Centrals "Sarah Silverman Show.” He has released two comedy albums, "Live in: Nerd Rage” and the appropriately titled "Fart and Weiner Jokes.” Posehn performs his brand of raunchy humor and heavy metal-parodies at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, Feb. 16, at WOW Hall; $20 adv., $23 door.
