I'm against illegal downloading.

But if I weren't, and I wanted to check out the commercially unavailable, critically acclaimed late-90s TV dramedy "Cupid," starring Jeremy Piven, I'd go here.

Brian Posehn: Raw and Uncut

| 0 comments

Today's Sound of Young America guest is Brian Posehn, who's best known by the average American for his work as "that guy" on sitcoms like Just Shoot Me and Newsradio. He's also an accomplished standup comic and was a writer and actor on Mr. Show.

I talked with Brian for nearly an hour, and I'll be editing it for broadcast, but I thought some Sound fans might like to hear what Brian had to say about all kinds of things, from growing up in small-town Northern California, to his early days as a standup in the Bay Area, to his first writing gig for MTV, to Mr. Show, to everything since.

Brian Posehn is one of the guests on this coming week's Sound of Young America broadcast. I think I'll release a director's cut of the interview sometime -- he talked a lot about his remarkable history in both comedy and life.

Then he told me this great (breaking) story, about a guy who bragged on the net about spitting in his burger at a Bob's Big Boy the other day. The moral of the story is: don't mess with Brian Posehn. He has people.
