BRIAN POSEHN

THURSDAY, JUNE 11–SATURDAY, JUNE 13, RALEIGH

GOODNIGHTS COMEDY CLUB—Don't let the tall, lumbering frame and Frankenstein-like body language of stand-up comedian Brian Posehn intimidate you. The man is a big ol' softy at heart. Besides, he's just another funny fanboy, joking about comic books and other geek ephemera onstage. So, of course, he's gonna give off the awkward vibe of a guy who would rather be playing Dungeons & Dragons. (He does that anyway, on his own podcast, Nerd Poker.) The dude loves comics to the point where has a side hustle writing them. Following in the footsteps of his former Comedians of Comedy tour-mate Patton Oswalt, who has written a few comic-book stories here and there, Posehn penned a popular run of Marvel's Deadpool. This is a reminder to non-comics readers: If you go to Posehn's Goodnights gigs this weekend, expect to share table space with folks who will likely have several comic books for him to sign. Or, they may just take them to his June 13 appearance at Chapel Hill Comics (13 p.m., 316 W. Franklin St.). 8 p.m. Thurs; 7:30 and 10 p.m. Fri. and Sat., $16–$32, 861 W. Morgan St., Raleigh, 919-828-5233, www.goodnightscomedy.com.Craig D. Lindsey

Price: $16-$32
