SANTA ANA PUEBLO — Standup comedian Brian Posehn is no stranger to the Land of Enchantment.
In fact, Posehn, pronounced “Poe-sane,” has shot several movies in New Mexico and is good friends with “Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk, who worked with him on the sketch comedy series “Mr. Show” on HBO.
A self-proclaimed metal head and Star Wars enthusiast, Posehn drew much of his earlier standup material from his life as a proud nerd. Now with many years of performing live under his belt and a Christmas list of TV and movie spots, Posehn said in a phone interview that his new material is more on the political side.
