Unlike other comic-book obsessed stand-ups who try to turn their collections into stand-up shtick, comedian Brian Posehn has nerd cred clout to spare. He’s got bylines on best-selling graphic novels like his post-apocalyptic Christmas tome The Last Christmas and Marvel’s Deadpool series. He’s also got a couple of best-selling comedy albums under his belt and one of Netflix’s highest-rated and highest-viewed comedy specials, The Fartist, made exclusively for the game-changing streaming service. Both are bound to make for an explosive combination of nerd rage when he takes to the Hyena’s Comedy Nightclub stage at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Hyena’s is located in Mockingbird Station at 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane. Tickets cost $12 to $17.
