brian pFor this week’s Tuesday Stand Up special, I picked a special from a comedian that I have wanted to check out for a long time in Brian Posehn. I consider him another guy that I call a Heavy Metal Comedian like Jim Breuer, Jim Norton, Jim Florentine, and even Don Jameison. You may remember him from The Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer or even The Devil’s Rejects. So, New Wave Entertainment presented a special that was released from him called Brian Posehn: The Fartist and it was recorded at The Neptune Theater in Seattle, Washington. In the special, Brian tackles every topic imaginable from changing for marriage, the smell of fake breasts, strippers, punk/metal chicks as strippers, smoking pot, having a baby, getting old, farts, the human body, farting on Christian Slater, dick leaks, Dirty Jokes, cheating, the apocalypse, “Weird” Al Yankovic, getting into shape, and so much more in this hilarious special.

He has a very interesting style of comedy where he literally degrades himself in the name of humor and it’s enjoyable I must admit. I say that only because I can relate to some of it. Like a lot of other metal comedians, he of course mentions some metal bands as part of his jokes like Slayer and the apocalypse. One of my favorite bits from the special is when he talks about farting on Christian Slater. He talks about how he went to a voice over audition where he met Slater. He would then fart in the hallway and by the time Slater came out of the audition, he ran into the room and heard Slater say something about the smell in the hallway. I definitely liked the special from Posehn and if you’re a fan of these types of comedians then do yourself a favor and check it out. I am going to give the special a B+ for a final grade.
