Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is comedian and Heavy Metal Brian Posehn.  He’s funny on stage and funny in this, let’s see if he’s funny on the Twitter.


March 14th:  “At Cobbs Comedy Club in SF this weekend.I have a bunch of new shit about my balls and serial killers I can’t wait to yell into a microphone.”

Now that’s a stand up comic’s tweet.

March 14th:  “Glad that when I was a friendless loser in High School,Katy Perry wasn’t around to tell me I was a “firework”. I would’ve lit myself on fire.”

Yeah, I think we’ve all been there.  Doused in gasoline, ready to go.

March 14th:  “I’m at the Melrose Improv March 24th for two shows with a ridiculous list of my funny friends doing guest sets. Get tix now.”

Man, he does a lot of shows.  Get this man a TV show so he can get off the road for a while.

March 21st:  “It’s Brian Posehn and Friends @ Melrose Improv in LA this Saturday, 8pm and 10pm. Super funny friends said yes. Unfunny friends said no.”

Perfect.  That other show when it was the other way around, very awkward.

March 24th:  “A week ago, Christian Slater smelled one of my farts. Now I sit alone, paying bills. Highs and lows!”

I did not see that on TMZ.

March 24th:  “Dude playing Mastodon’s Leviathan on piano : heavy as fuck! http://youtu.be/h85KV5e6t-E


March 25th:  “Melrose Improv,second show of Brian Posehn and Friends.First show was insane. @SarahKSilverman and @nickthune are doing sets.Where are you?”

Watching reruns of Mission Hill and eating Ben & Jerry’s as usual.

March 28th:  “Listening to new God Forbid and @3iob for first time. They’ll both be in heavy rotation for a while. Killer!! Thanks @Doc4bid for heads up.”

Likin’ it.  Very Dethklok.

March 28th:  “Oh yeah, the new Overkill rules too! Can’t wait for their May 3rd LA show with God Forbid. Sure I won’t be the only old metalhead there.”

Brian is a true metalhead.  Not like this.

March 28th:  “Speaking of old metal fans,Murder in the Front Row is a fucking must have.Photo book on 80s Bay Area Thrash. Crank Vio-lence while you read.”

That would be this.  Neat.

March 28th:  “Also check out this video http://youtu.be/BFe8TBhLeQQ. This poor kid needs to move out.”

Damn, that was some cold shit, mom.

March 31st: “In San Diego for one show. Tomorrow at the American Comedy Company in the Gaslamp district at 8pm. A ton of new stuff.”

Go see Brian, bros.  He rocks!

Let’s rate Brian’s tweets.  Little behind the scenes, an acceptable level of plugging mixed with some jokes and links, plus I learned some stuff about Heavy Metal.  I give him a 7 for Mustness, a 7 for Insanity and a 10 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.  Totally worth following.  10 if you’re a metalhead.
