  • Preview clips from Brian Posehn’s upcoming CD/DVD release, ‘The Fartist’

    The FartistMetalhead/nerd/dad/comedian/comic book writer and all around fan of farts, Brian Posehn returns with the release of a new CD/DVD, The Fartist. What do you think the subject matter of the special is about? Well, farts silly. Not only farts but Posehn also tackles being a father and the trials and tribulations of growing up and taking on adult responsibilities – like what to tip a stripper and why he’s aggressively anti-Star Wars prequels. Total adult things.

    The Fartist was released via Netflix earlier this year. It was recorded in Seattle’s Neptune Theater and directed by Jay Chapman. New Wave Dynamics will release The Fartist on June 25th. But since that’s a while off, we have this handy dandy preview widget so you can get your fart fix until then. Read More
