I recently discovered the comic tragedy that is Kenny Powers on HBO’s Eastbound & Down. His fall from professional baseball superstar to high school gym teacher is easily the funniest shit on TV right now. Kenny, played by rising talent Danny McBride, is a cocksure mix of eye of the tiger bravado, southern good ol’ boy, and simple ass backwards arrogance and stupidity.

I think we’ve had enough of him, no? Danny McBride is the star here, playing the misunderstood redneck Kenny so convincingly, that you have to love him. Check it out…
