If you're a fan of alt comedy from the '90s, 2000s and beyond, chances are you're already a fan of Brian Posehn and don't even know it.

Known for his self-deprecating sense of humor and lifelong love of comic books and heavy metal, Posehn joined Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Maria Bamford on the "Comedians of Comedy" tour, and starred in the documentary and Comedy Central series of the same name. Posehn's recent highlights include a hilarious role as gay neighbor Brian in "The Sarah Silverman Program", three stand-up specials including 2013's "The Fartist" and a recurring role on "New Girl".

What did our founding fathers mean when they wrote all those high-minded words about freedom? In playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker's "Jefferson's Garden", two characters straddle the line between the founders' good intentions and reality. During the tumultuous founding of the United States, Christian, a Quaker, is desperate to join the revolution and fight for freedom despite his pacifist beliefs. Susannah, a slave, is tempted to fight for the British, who have promised to set her free after the war. When the two cross paths, the contradictions inherent in "a nation conceived in liberty" are brought into harsh light. As Christian and Susannah meet figures like Thomas Jefferson, George Mason and Sally Hemings, they uncover the compromises our founders made, compromises that still echo today. "Jefferson's Garden" is a timely meditation on the realities of freedom of America at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C. [less-]
