Humour and comedy is subjective.
What one person finds funny another might cringe at.
Cue E.B. White.
Analysing comedy is like dissecting a frog: You might understand it better at the end but the frog dies as a result of it.
Most comedy is based on simple, basic truths.
Basic truths that are spoken out.
Some say humour is masturbatory.
Padding yourself on the shoulder that you are intelligent enough to find what is being said foolish or to congratulate yourself on understanding the concept of the joke.
If you are into metal, nerdism, and weed, you will probably enjoy Brian Posehn’s stand-up routine and his anecdotes about encounters with the bands of the genre.
Being a self-professed nerd, Posehn’s self-deprecating humour and authenticity adds to his routine when he talks us through popular culture, e.g. Star Wars franchise, and its less savoury emissions, i.e. hipsterdom, along with insights on his childhood, teenage years, and married life as a father.
The audience thoroughly enjoyed Brian Posehn’s show, which was part of Sydney’s annual comedy festival.
Basic truths spoken out very loudly.
