Only three hours into New York Comic Con and already a lot had happened. It’s been geek-galore at every turn-starting with a two-hour comedy show to kick off the conference.
Brian Posehn opened the show with casual jokes about his yetti-like appearance and went on about having the tits of an old lady. He introduced Mike Drucker—a smaller, younger, hipster version of Brian Posehn. He entertained the audience by admitting he feels like part of the problem when he jerks off to porn.
Mike Caplan came up next with quick, smart jokes about time travel (hello nerds) and his experience on taking drugs, calling salvia ‘evil mushrooms.’
Baron Vaughn debated over cereal class systems and sang the ‘Duck Tales’ theme song and sang his best rendition of Lady Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi.’ Trevor Moore from the sketch group The Whitest Kids You Know did a bit of musical comedy with songs titled God hates the tips of little baby’s dick, Drunk texts to myself, and What About Mouth Wash.
Janeane Garafolo started with a bit of crowd pleasing politics; making a Tardis couldn’t travel out of custom joke. She talked for awhile about the jobs she would love to have. One being a referee at the puppy bowl. The other: a worker at a bead shop. She just wants to look a beads made from a ‘collective of Equadorian women.’ Oh and she said that coconut water tastes like a combination of Fresca and dishwater….and she’s right.
Brian Posehn finished off the night with many more joke about his nerdy look, man cave, and how it’s not new how much he hates the ‘new’ Star Wars movies—meaning episodes I, III, and III. “No, I just don’t give a fuck. I give all the fucks.” And then closing it with a joke about hanging out with his son and him wanting to play Batman vs. Wolverine. “You don’t know anything you stupid, fucking baby. Keep D.C. and Marvel separate.”
Well, until tomorrow nerds…
