Brian Posehn

Nerd Rage

Stand-up comedians aren't funny. With very few exceptions, this is a truism that has become stronger and stronger over the years with every "I drive my spouse nuts" line and "Black people do things differently" joke.

Brian Posehn is one of those exceptions. Culled from the last bastion of laughter - The Comedians of Comedy Tour, Nerd Rage reminds us what it takes to be a comedian. Just be funny. Fuck telling jokes. Fuck doing impressions. Just. Be. Funny. You know how there's always one guy at a party that's relating anecdotes that might offend a handful in the room but have another pocket of people laughing their balls/vagina off? That's Posehn.

What's that? That sort of thing doesn't happen at your parties? Well then, my tight-ass friend, you're just going to the wrong damn parties, aintcha? You're sad and lonely and missing out on hilarious stories of Heavy Metal (yes, it should always be capitalized), theater rape, and unexpected bestiality. You heard me.

It's always been said that humor is subjective, but if you don't like this album there is something wrong with you. And it's something that all the Wellbutrin in the world can't make right. Don't be fooled by all those yearbook signatures. Everyone thinks you're a loser.

Or you may be asking yourself, "Who in the hell is Brian Posehn?" If you don't know the name, you'll know the face from films like The Devil's Rejects, or from TV's Mr. Show, Just Shoot Me, and Newsradio. And if you still don't know him, well then, you fucking luddite, get yourself a TV and start watching The Showbiz Show with David Spade or The Comedians of Comedy series both on Comedy Central. Watch him. Buy Nerd Rage. Get to know him. One listen and you'll wish he was in your living room while you watch "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" so you can both make fun of all those crying pussies.

Just a reminder - this CD isn't in any stores. The only way to get a hold of it is via his website. Not everybody has those Dane Cook hookups - this is DIY, folks. Just like that Jag Panzer tape you made your friends back in high school. Support good comedy. Christ knows we need more of it out there.
