Brian Posehn is a funny man who has been in lots of funny stuff and is known to many as "that one guy from TV". If you pay attention to what you watch, you might know him best as Kevin; the weirdo mail boy from Just Shoot Me, or from any of his guest appearances on other sitcoms (Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond) and movies (The Wedding Singer, Run Ronnie Run, Dumb and Dumberer, The Devil's Rejects). Most notably though, you know him as part of the creative core of HBO's legendary, Emmy-nominated Mr. Show, his Comedy Central special, and from the critically-acclaimed Comedians of Comedy Tour.
Posehn's 'Live In: Nerd Rage' reveals the hilarious observations of a self-professed nerd and life-long fan of heavy metal. At times personal, nasty, dry, and absurd, Brian riffs on being a teenage metal fan, his dog Ernie, high-school reunions, body 'parts' and getting revenge on childhood tormentors. Recorded as part the Comedians of Comedy tour, and including a sketch with Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show), 'Live In: Nerd Rage' is Brian at his funniest!
Not just mere stand-up however, 'Live In: Nerd Rage' also incorporates two musical cuts by Brian's heavy metal bands POSEHN and TITANNICA. Each lineup is a who's who of the hard rock elite; featuring Scott Ian [ANTHRAX], Joey Vera [ARMORED SAINT, FATES WARNING], John Tempesta [WHITE ZOMBIE, THE CULT, TESTAMENT] with solos by Jonathan Donais [SHADOWS FALL] and Russ Parrish [METAL SKOOL, FIGHT] and Brian himself on vocals. POSEHN slays with the soon-to-be-legendary original "Metal By Numbers" while TITANNICA [the metal band from the beloved Mr. Show sketch] delivers their epic track "Try Again, Again".
