When comedian Brian Posehn quit smoking weed, it wasn’t because of adverse health effects, next-day burnout, or its dubious legal status. Posehn quit because, as he once recalled on Conan, he saw a guy remove his fake eye while high, and it freaked him out. Expect these kinds of stories when Posehn appears at the Black Cat and forgoes the usual comedy-club fare of drink minimums, bad food, and prop comedians. Onstage, Posehn tackles topics that often take a self-deprecating turn: “I have not taken care of myself,” he said on his 2013 comedy album, The Fartist. “I recently hit a speed bump in my car going too fast, and parts of my body moved independently of each other.” Read more >>> Brian Posehn performs at 8 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. $20.
