The Time Brian Posehn Met Bill Clinton
It's hard to miss Brian Posehn. His movie and TV appearances have attracted fans from sitcoms ("Just Shoot Me") to comedy nerd documentaries ("The Comedians of Comedy"), so he's pretty used to getting recognized by strangers. He just never thought a certain ex-President would be among them.
We caught up with Brian at Caroline's in Times Square, where he's performing stand-up this weekend. In addition to telling us about his run-in with Bubba, he also talked about his new tour, Comedy Mutant, his upcoming podcast and an exciting new collaboration with Marvel Comics.
Check out our exclusive interview above, and if you're in New York City (and not attending the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival), check out Brian at Caroline's. (Warning, the video has some stray Nsfw language.) »

Resistance Is Futile: Picard Vs. Time Warner
He may have survived the Borg, but it appears that Time Warner Cable has assimilated Sir Patrick Stewart's life-force.
Or at least that's the actor, best known for his portrayal of Captain Picard on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," tweeted at the cable and Internet service provider Thursday:
All I wanted to do was set up a new account with @twcable_nyc but 36hrs later I've lost the will to live.
— Patrick Stewart (@SirPatStew) September 14, 2012
The Consumerist reports that after Stewart's complaint was retweeted "a few hundred times," Time Warner Cable's social team got back to him, asking, "How can we assist you?"
But the actor wasn't impressed. "If that question had been asked at any time in the last 36hrs it would have been of value," Stewart shot back.
