Eugene Mirman, Michael Showalter, & Leo Allen at Ottobar

Checked out some comedy tonight at the Ottobar- saw a show with comedians Eugene Mirman, Michael Showalter (Stella, The State), and Leo Allen.
They were all funny, but I think Mirman was my favorite. He has an album, En Garde, Society!, on SubPop which is pretty good. He showed a few videos he made as well as some Powerpoint enhanced skits. For some reason the three comics were obsessed with Toby Keith. They played a song called "The Taliban Song" that begins with:
I'm just a middle-aged middle-eastern camel-herdin' man
I got a little two-bedroom cave here in North Afghanistan
Things used to be real nice and they got out of hand
Since they moved in
They call themselves the Taliban
Oooh, oooh the Taliban, baby
