Comedian/actor/writer Brian Posehn has most recently been seen on Comedy Central’s popular show, “The Sarah Silverman Program” and on tour as one of the original members of the “Comedians of Comedy”.

Besides writing and performing on HBO’s acclaimed “Mr. Show”, he has appeared in sitcoms such as “Just Shoot Me”, “Seinfeld”, “NewsRadio”, “Everybody Loves Raymond”, and “Friends”.

Brian has also appeared in several movies, including Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects” and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”, “Sex Drive” and “Surfs Up”.

In 2006 he released his first graphic novel, “The Last Christmas”, and a comedy album: “Live in Nerd Rage”. His music video for “Metal By Numbers” has been viewed over two million times on You Tube and My Space. He is a regular on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and was a crowd favorite at the recent Bob Saget Roast on Comedy Central.

In 2008 he headlined the comedy stages at the popular music festivals, Download, Sasquatch and Bonnaroo. He also played a man with a prolapsed rectum on “Californication”. In 2009 Brian wrote an episode of “The Sarah Silverman Program” and wrote the story for a “Metalocalypse’ episode. He also made an appearance in the Judd Apatow film “Funny People”. He also directed a video for the hilarious hair metal band, Steel Panther.

In 2010 he continues to tour, is releasing a new album called “Fart and Wiener Jokes” and a new video for “More Metal Than You”, and was recently featured on the Golden Gods Awards performing his new song with his all-star metal band. Posehn is currently working on a new comic book (“Science Projects”).

    Never been to the Helium, and I’d love to go!

  2. wallace August 15, 2012 at 12:56 #

    Posehn is insane, lemme at ’em!

  3. spacehorse August 15, 2012 at 12:57 #

    yes, yes please!!

  4. Stephanie Young August 15, 2012 at 13:03 #

    AHHHHHHhhhhhh! I want to attend for so many reasons that this comment field couldn’t even handle it! I would LOVE Friday, August 17 at 10 p.m

  5. ptermclean August 15, 2012 at 13:04 #

    I’d love to see this fat bastard perform. I think he’s one of the worst, most awkward performers there is. He’s hardly funny, except when on Mr. Show. So, I sort of want to see his trainwreck he calls standup. Oh, he was ok in The Devil’s Rejects … TITANICA!

  6. ptermclean August 15, 2012 at 13:05 #

    Oh, Friday is fine as well … ^^

  7. rosie August 15, 2012 at 13:07 #

    I would be so grateful to see him live.
    Time: Thursday, August 16 @ 8 p.m.
    (actually, any of those times…)

  8. Michael August 15, 2012 at 13:17 #

    I want to see him because it’s gonna be the only way I can get this girl to go out with me.

  9. Jessica August 15, 2012 at 13:24 #


  10. Alanna August 15, 2012 at 13:36 #

    I love comedy and I’m really poor. Also, watching comedians online blows. Would love tickets!

  11. Dylan August 15, 2012 at 14:08 #

    I would love those tickets! It’s been 4 years since I last saw Brian and I’m experiencing Posehn withdrawal symptoms! Slayer!!!

  12. Dylan August 15, 2012 at 14:10 #

    Oops and I could go to any of the Friday or Saturday times! I’m too poor to have weekend plans.

  13. Anne August 15, 2012 at 14:34 #

    I love this guy! Hes so funny and Ive always wanted to see him in person!!
    Either time would be great! Yay!!

  14. cory meyers August 15, 2012 at 16:50 #

    7:30 please!

  15. Joseph Keebler August 15, 2012 at 20:26 #

    Posehn is the funniest geek alive!

  16. JS August 15, 2012 at 22:52 #

    I really want to make this one! I have wanted to see him live for so long. Dry and ironic, Love It! Trade for Daniel Tosh tickets?… never mind…..

  17. nick August 15, 2012 at 23:22 #

    My girl friend and I love this guy and we work super hard long hours just to make bill payments are anniversary is coming up and I would love to take her out for the night and surprised her since we couldn’t do anything cause we are before this would make her so incredibly happy and that would be much needed for the two of us, please choose us pretty please .

  18. Jesse Radonski August 16, 2012 at 07:15 #

    I’d LOVE to attend because I’ve been a huge metal fan for my whole life and equal parts nerd. I’ve never had the chance to see him live either. Mike Drucker is also performing with him and he writes on a video game show I watch on YouTube called Up at Noon.

    I can go during any of the times available.

  19. Josie August 16, 2012 at 08:48 #

    PLEASE pick me!!!! He’s up at Bumbershoot Labor Day weekend and we can’t go up there!!! I’m dying to see him and can basically name a show i’ve seen him in for every year i’ve been alive!

    Friday at 10pm would be awesome!!!!!!!!

  20. Will Young August 16, 2012 at 09:04 #

    I love Brian Posehn, I’m so broke I never get to do anything, about to have my 3rd kid. Can’t afford to do anything fun for myself, would be a welcome relief to go see some comedy.

    Would love to go Saturday at 7:30 or 10, either one.

  21. Kordell Perkin August 16, 2012 at 09:13 #

    I want to win because Posehn is the funniest fucker ever! I’ll go to any show.

  22. PR August 16, 2012 at 09:21 #

    Because he’s a funny f***.

  23. Rick August 16, 2012 at 09:26 #

    To see what it takes to be a stand up comedian and feel his aura.

    Early show friday

  24. Sean August 16, 2012 at 09:30 #

    If I spend two hours with Brian Posehn, my DM assures me it will add +2 Cleverness, +1 Deviltry and give me an extra saving throw against Maturity. That’s definitely worth the hit of the -1 Social Adjustment and the increased chance of a critical fail with Women.

  25. James Melhuish August 16, 2012 at 09:44 #

    I like Brian Posehn. He is my favorite comedian. I like Saturday at 7:30. That is my favorite time.

  26. Stephanie August 16, 2012 at 09:51 #

    This guy is hilarious! :)

  27. Lara August 16, 2012 at 09:59 #

    I would loooove to go! I’m 36weeks pregnant…I’m hoping laughing all night will speed up my labor :) piiiick me!

  28. Paul Larson August 16, 2012 at 11:01 #

    Tomorrow is my last day of College, it would be a graduation gift if I won the tickets!

  29. Xan August 16, 2012 at 11:05 #

    I have loved Posehn ever since repeated repeated watching of Mr. Show back in the day, but I’ve never seen him live. I lose it just thinking about the the sketch where he plays the lead in “Goin’ Crackers” and has about two seconds of screen time in an awards ceremony–if a mere glimpse is enough to make me laugh, what is in store with Posehn’s standup?

    Also, I am seriously broke (like everyone else) and would LOVE to be able to give my best friend a surprise birthday present!

  30. Paul August 16, 2012 at 11:11 #

    I’d like the tickets because I wanna go to comedy mutant but can’t even make it to this show because i’m poor.

  31. Melissa August 16, 2012 at 11:46 #

    Brian Posehn is genius! Who ever wins these tickets is truly lucky to be in his presence. Rarely can you find a comedian who has such a unique voice and is proudly self-effacing. Rock on Mr. Posehn!

  32. Ann August 16, 2012 at 11:47 #

    I listen to Brian on Pandora all the time and would love to see him !!

  33. Ashley August 16, 2012 at 13:11 #

    I haven’t gone to Helium yet, and he is so hilarious that this would be the perfect event to go to.

  34. Jared August 16, 2012 at 13:13 #

    It would be great to win tickets for tonight :). It’s my birthday this Saturday.

  35. monkeybeat August 16, 2012 at 13:22 #

    Brian Posehn is funny as hell, and one of the few people on earth I might stand a chance against in a beauty contest.
    Ether time works for me.

  36. sparkatito August 16, 2012 at 14:34 #

    two words: nerd rage

  37. leitner says August 16, 2012 at 14:36 #

    Commenting **fingers crossed**

  38. Tommy August 16, 2012 at 14:37 #

    Pick me, Pick me, Pick me. I want to impress my girlfriend!! I’ll go any time you have tickets available!

  39. Ryan August 16, 2012 at 14:37 #

    ground kontrol, comic books, and brian posehn. it’s the BLT of nerds

  40. Kait August 16, 2012 at 14:39 #

    I should win because I remember when Brian Posehn appeared on the TV show “Just Shoot Me” and played air guitar. I have fond memories of that, so I suspect I would enjoy his live comedy even more. Plus, he voiced a character on one of the best episodes of the cartoon “Adventure Time.” I appreciate the full spectrum of his work and promise to laugh a lot in the audience.

  41. Kimberley K August 16, 2012 at 14:39 #

    I would love to take my sweetheart to the 10:00 show!! He could really use some good laughs these days! Many thanks!!

  42. Andrea Benson August 16, 2012 at 14:40 #

    I’ve never been to a comedy show, so this would be tons of fun!

  43. David Moss August 16, 2012 at 14:40 #

    I need comedic relief! I have the hottest room in my house; I could go anywhere for some a/c but the chance to laugh my ass off would be true relief from this miniheatwave.

  44. Fred August 16, 2012 at 14:41 #

    Would really love to come see this show, but budget constraints forbid at this time, so winning tickets would be awesome.

  45. Marsha August 16, 2012 at 14:44 #

    My best friend from New York flies in tonight and he is a Portland virgin! What better way to pop his hipster cherry than with a hell of a show at Helium. Brian is too funny. Slayer!! Not to mention I met Brian after his show last year in Portland and took a whiskey shot with him. This time I want to take a shot with him IN the comedy club after I see him perform!

  46. Jadd T August 16, 2012 at 14:45 #

    It’s been a tough week… The best remedy would for me to finish it off by getting Posehn in the membrane Friday night at 7:30.

  47. Scott August 16, 2012 at 14:45 #

    I worked with Brian YEARS ago! Haven’t seen him in ages and I would LOVE to see his show and say “Hi!”

  48. brad August 16, 2012 at 14:49 #

    This dude’s stand up is WAY better than the Silverman show!

  49. Jacqueline August 16, 2012 at 14:49 #

    I would love to take my guy out to see Brian. We are both big fans and his birthday is coming up. I am but a poor college student and buying tickets is not an option. Any time will do but if I have to chose it would be Friday at 7:30.


  50. Christian August 16, 2012 at 14:51 #

    Brian Posehn is one of the funniest live comedians I’ve seen, and I’d love to go back to where I first saw him with my girlfriend…At the Helium! (Would like Friday at 10:00).

  51. Jimmy Radosta August 16, 2012 at 14:58 #

    I’d love to go to the early show. Thanks!

  52. Chris August 16, 2012 at 15:00 #

    Why would I love to go? Well hell, I love comedy. And I love that Portland is the epicenter of kick-ass comedy. Plus, I’m a huge Newsradio nerd and I would love to see someone who shared the stage with Phil Hartman,

  53. James August 16, 2012 at 15:04 #

    Brian and I both love heavy metal.

  54. Jeremy Adams August 16, 2012 at 15:05 #

    . . . because he’s shlubbier and more awkward than I, thus my wife will find me infinitely sexier that night. Plus, I’m turning 40 this month. Fucking 40!!! Saturday at 7:30, please.

  55. Amy August 16, 2012 at 15:09 #

    Can’t get enough of this guy! Would freak out (in a good) way if I got to see him at Helium!!

  56. Amy August 16, 2012 at 15:11 #

    **either show would work (to add to my comment above)

  57. Nick August 16, 2012 at 15:12 #

    I’d love to go to this! I love his laid back geeky comedy.

  58. Amy H. August 16, 2012 at 15:15 #

    I’m a big fan of PDXPipeline, a big fan of Helium and I love me some Brian Posehn! What a treat it would be to win tickets, I’d gratefully accept either the 7:30 or 10:00 show! I’d do quite the happy dance!

  59. Steven August 16, 2012 at 15:18 #

    Why pick me?
    Because the stars rarely align to give the truly nerdy, video-gaming, metal-headed folk like myself a night out where the crowd and entertainment actually understand our passion. Mix passion w/ hysterical laughs by one of the best comedians ever and you have a night to remember!
    Plus, you’re possibly saving me a future mistake, because if my date doesn’t like this… there won’t be more dates…

  60. Andrea Roselle August 16, 2012 at 15:21 #

    I think Helium is one of the COOLEST places to hang out in town!! And I’ve always wanted to see this comedian ever since I saw him on on Super High Me! Pretty please???

  61. Tony Palomino August 16, 2012 at 15:22 #

    You had me at “free”. I’d love to go to the 10pm show on Saturday the 18th!!!

  62. Johnny P August 16, 2012 at 15:26 #

    Free tix to the Friday at 7:30 show means more quarters to be spent at Ground Kontrol!!

  63. cory burnsed August 16, 2012 at 15:27 #

    Ive been watching and listening to Brian for almost 1510 years and have never seen him live. I want him to sign my chest

  64. Phil August 16, 2012 at 15:37 #


  65. megan August 16, 2012 at 15:38 #

    My mom’s 63rd birthday was yesterday and I told her I wanted to take her to the heilum because she loves stand up but has only been to other places. We ended up sending all our extra money to my cousin in Reno who needed back surgery done because he broke his back motor crossing this week. So taking my mom this weekend ended up being cancelled. My mom was looking forward to going but understands. I would love to tell her we can still go. Shhh….don’t tell her lol

  66. Cristina August 16, 2012 at 15:39 #

    Not only is Brian great, but last time I went to Helium the main act never showed, so I need some good luck sent my way when it comes to comedy shows in PDX. Thanks Pipeline!

  67. Cory Shird August 16, 2012 at 15:41 #

    I want to attend the 7:30 show because I might be able to smell Sarah Silverman on him!!

  68. Dena August 16, 2012 at 15:42 #

    Would love to catch the 7:30 show.

  69. Scott Weber August 16, 2012 at 15:49 #

    By virtue of The Absurd, I deserve… oh, hell, I don’t deserve shit! I’d like to reintroduce Doom Town to my nephew, as he’ll be visiting that day from cultural-depraved Austin and that’d be the ticket. Haven’t seen Brian Posehn in the flesh, and doubt he really exists. 10 PM could be the “reality” check.

  70. Stuart Kemp August 16, 2012 at 16:07 #

    Would love to see him in standup routine!!

  71. Adam August 16, 2012 at 16:13 #

    It would be great to win tickets to see Posehn and Drucker. Im a fan of both, really. I won’t bore you with a sob story.

  72. Shane Johnson August 16, 2012 at 16:14 #

    I’ll go to any time slot on Thur or Fri.

  73. Jeff V. August 16, 2012 at 16:15 #

    I need a good laugh!
    I’m down for the Friday at 10pm show!

  74. Tony August 16, 2012 at 16:25 #

    Out of work and really need the laugh!! :)

  75. Julianna Clark August 16, 2012 at 16:44 #

    Yay!! Hope to be there!


  76. David K. August 16, 2012 at 16:45 #

    Can’t wait to see that droll babyface comic I love!

  77. BeautifulCrow August 16, 2012 at 16:49 #

    Loved him on the Sarah Silverman Show! Would equally love to see him live.

  78. Tia August 16, 2012 at 16:59 #

    Friday at 10PM please! I love that guy! I hope he’s wearing a beard!

  79. alex Gersovitz August 16, 2012 at 17:03 #

    hi, id like tickets because hes very funny and I’ve wanted to see him for a long time

  80. Craig August 16, 2012 at 17:19 #

    BP is the man! Been following him and waiting to see him forever!

  81. Cassia August 16, 2012 at 17:31 #

    Looks so fun! I can go anytime!

  82. steadycat August 16, 2012 at 17:58 #

    BP would TOTALLY BE OK with me showing up for the AC!

    damn its hot in here, and i’m already naked…..

  83. Matthew August 16, 2012 at 18:36 #

    Would love to take my wife. This guy is hilarious!

  84. Cara August 16, 2012 at 19:11 #

    Because I have boobs and I bet he’d appreciate them as much as I do.

  85. Cara August 16, 2012 at 19:12 #

    And I’d be happy at any of the shows

  86. Nick Hilton August 16, 2012 at 20:31 #

    Cause I ain’t gots nuthun to do bitch! Lol. 10pm.

  87. DANIEL RUTH August 16, 2012 at 21:28 #



  88. Brittany Stebbins August 16, 2012 at 23:06 #

    I’d like to go!1

  89. Marilena August 16, 2012 at 23:42 #

    Ou ou! Pick me! :D

  90. Jared August 16, 2012 at 23:53 #

    From five year engagement to vh1 to his stand up this man is a super star. But in a better than molly shannon way… I would go to either show pick me

  91. panda August 17, 2012 at 01:07 #

    fri 10pm

    hell yeah

  92. bueno August 17, 2012 at 02:29 #

    Brian was so damn funny on Just Shoot Me & is a great follow on Twitter!

  93. Grego August 17, 2012 at 08:47 #

    Posehn is a funny guy! Count me in.

  94. Pamela August 17, 2012 at 10:22 #

    I love going to stand-up shows and think Posehn would be great! My husband and I work high-stress jobs so live comedy would be a welcome addition to our weekend (he has to work in the ICU all day Saturday & Sunday!).

  95. Jenn August 17, 2012 at 11:54 #

    I’d LOVE to go to the 10pm show on Saturday. Laughing is a great aphrodisiac and I’m trying to plan a date for Saturday night.

  96. Candace Beaver August 17, 2012 at 13:57 #

    Love Brian, metal by numbers kills. Would love tickets for Friday August 17, either early or late show!

  97. Jessie August 17, 2012 at 14:01 #

    BP is one of my favorite comedians next to Mitch Hedberg, Louis CK and Bill Hicks. He is one of the best. And he is into cool shit like comics and local music, etc. which usually makes his material relatable by a grip of us counterculture types. Go Brian! Please put my name in the hat…thanks!

  98. Sagirly August 17, 2012 at 17:35 #

    He is HILARIOUS!!! That’s why I want to win. :)

  99. Candace Sheets August 17, 2012 at 17:38 #

    Need to get out of this insane heat! I love Brian and Helium!

  100. Steve Michael August 17, 2012 at 19:09 #

    My mom just told me that I am the bastard child of Brian. He left when I was just a baby. I would like to come laugh at him.

  101. mike August 17, 2012 at 20:09 #

    that dudes a douche. (therefore I must go for free!)

  102. Kathy August 18, 2012 at 09:20 #

    I’d like to see if he really is funny

  103. Mike Larson August 23, 2012 at 12:52 #

    I really wanted to go to this but didn’t have the money. My birthday is August 26. This would be a rad gift from the universe (or PDX pipeline)
