Where to even begin with Brian Posehn, comedian, actor, podcaster, musician, Deadpool comic book writer, self-proclaimed "Fartist" (really), and all-around aggrieved-sad-sack-made-good extraordinaire? From his early appearances on the postmodern sketch-comedy classic Mr. Show with Bob & David and his stand-up run with the original Comedians of Comedy to his recurring role on The Big Bang Theory and his Dungeons & Dragons-based Nerd Poker podcast, Posehn is always ready to let his geek flag fly. In his acting and stand-up, he relies on a baleful gaze, a complaining vocal timbre, a Unabomber beard, and self-esteem-less body language to craft an underdog character you have to root for a little, even if he's being a jerk. It's bitterness beatified, snark as self-defense. If your life has felt short on cringe-laughs lately, you could hardly do better than Posehn's three-night stand in Raleigh this week. —Brian Howe
