A comedy veteran on the screen and stage, Brian Posehn is also no stranger to Austin. He gave a performance well-reviewed by our own Dale Roe during the 2013 Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival. In his return, Posehn will perform five shows in three days at Capital City Comedy Club. His opening show on Thursday begins at 8 p.m., and tickets range from $18-$22.

On the comedy scene since 1994, Posehn has been featured on several comedic television programs like Mr. Show with Bob and David, The Sarah Silverman Program, Out of Jimmy’s Head, and recently some recurring roles in The Big Bang Theory and New Girl.

According to Roe, Posehn’s set will be chock-full of jokes about “self-loathing, scatology, and the myriad ways he’s trashed his body.”
