Some of Posehn's Best Material
1 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whether or not you will like this special depends on whether or not you like Brian Posehn. Comedy is like that -- while some people (e.g. George Carlin) are legendary, others have their niche. Posehn definitely has his niche.

If you like jokes about Star Wars, flatulence, Christian Slater and masturbation, then Posehn may be the guy for you. He is the biggest nerd ever to walk the Earth (possibly) and it is reflected in his sense of humor.

Some of the jokes told here were already told on John Oliver's stand-up show, so you may have heard them before if you watched Oliver. It is only a small amount of material, and he definitely expands on those themes here. So, the lead-in might be the same but the stories go in slightly different directions.
