I had planned on blogging about yet another indie band playing Sasquatch, but then I looked at the lineup and remembered: There's a whole slew of super-talented comedians receiving little-to-no press at this thing. What's up with that? Sasquatch's Comedy! Tent will be graced by the likes of Matt Besser (a ridiculously talented guy), Morgan Murphy, Horatio Sanz, Tim Meadows, and Eugene Mirman. But the guy in the above YouTube clip is one you have seen countless times but probably never knew who the hell he was...or that he was even a stand-up comedian. Brian Posehn has appeared in Seinfeld, News Radio, Just Shoot Me!, Mr. Show, Human Giant, The Sarah Silverman Program, and a whole slew of other stuff. He's a huge metal fan, especially of the band Slayer, so it's up in the air whether he'll hear anything he likes at Sasquatch. But hopefully he'll do his bit on how it's not gay for two dudes to have sex as long as one of them yells "Slayer!!" in the middle of it.
Brian Posehn will perform at the Comedy! Tent, 7:15 p.m. Sun., May 25.
