Brian Posehn

Brian Posehn is more metal than you are. He’s also funnier than you are. Sorry to be so blunt, but just look at the facts! Were you a writer and performer on Mr. Show? Did you tour the country in The Comedians of Comedy? Have you written your own comic book? Lent your voice to a popular video game? Performed with Scott Ian? Thought so.

This episode has been approved for all audiences. If you are old enough to play soccer in The Netherlands, or even Spain, you will enjoy this show. All potential streakers have been asked to clothe themselves and any professional boxers will be put in jail if they display profane gestures.

Our hip young listeners will even get an educational rap if they listen long enough! So put down your gameboys and walkmen and pick up Sklarbro Country. Hey, it’s better for kids than some charity golf tournaments!
