Comedian Posehn to perform at Otto’s

Published: Thursday, Feb. 7, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Stand-up comedian Brian Posehn will bring his wry humor to Otto’s Niteclub & Underground in DeKalb on Feb. 8.

Doors open at 8 p.m., the show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets cost $20 for this 21-and-older show. Advance tickets are available at www.yourticketstand.com. Otto’s is located at 118 E. Lincoln Highway.

A veteran of the mid-90s sketch program “Mr. Show” (HBO) and more recently “The Sarah Silverman Program” (Comedy Central), Posehn is an unapologetic, self-described nerd, though he hasn’t always been.

“I don’t count the first seven (years of my life),” Posehn told Conan O’Brien back in 2004.

In 2005, Posehn hit the road with fellow stand-ups Maria Bamford, Patton Oswalt (of TV’s “The King Of Queens”) and Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover”) on the “Comedians Of Comedy” tour, which led to a best-selling DVD.

The following year, Posehn’s debut album Live In: Nerd Rage was released by Relapse Records, a label known for mostly metal and hardcore releases by bands such as Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Pig Destroyer.

Posehn’s TV appearances include roles on “Seinfeld,” “Friends,” “Just Shoot Me,” “Metalocalypse,” “Human Giant,” “Reno 911,” “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” and “Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” among others.
