Describing the powerfully funny comedy of Brent Weinbach may be best accomplished with abstract means, such as shapes. Weinbachs deadpan delivery of absurdist scenarios and characters is like a circle colliding with a triangle while its in a fight with a square. Sound more like dangly earrings from the 1980s? Lets see. Weinbach received the 2007 Andy Kaufman award for innovation in stand-up comedy, and that may be as close as anyone comes to conjuring his aesthetic. Its impossible to tell where Weinbach is going with a joke when he starts, and by the end youre overjoyed by the humor as well as the path you took to get there. His recent appearance on Conan is heartening for the stellar performance and also for the audiences excitement to receive it. This week he appears for three nights with local up-and-comers Kevin Camia and Ray Molina.
