Brian Posehn’s unforgettable facial features and stoic brand of comedy have appeared on such television shows like “The Sarah Silverman Program,” “New Girl” and, most recently, Netflix’s “W/ Bob and David.” In “Uncle Nick,” Posehn stars as the titular drunk in what is described as “the anti-christmas movie of the year.”

The bright, pasty Christmas poster features an animated Posehn in a deceivingly stable image of a jovial Uncle Nick fallen over on his chair, completely spread about over his own destruction. You can take a look at the poster below. 
“Uncle Nick” also stars Missi Pyle and Paget Brewster. The movie is directed by former “Attack of the Show” head writer Chris Kasick and written by Mike Demski, another “Attack of the Show” veteran. Prolific documentarian Errol Morris serves as executive producer.
