Forgetting Sarah Marshall was a pretty funny movie and all, but it was actor Jason Segel’s hilarious original song “Dracula’s Lament” that truly brought the house down, IMO. Thankfully, that Segel-penned piece was only the beginning of what’s looking to be a long and fruitful musical comedy career because his “Wonkey Eyed Girl” performance also brought the lulz on Craig Ferguson and now he’s collaborated with Oscar-winning duo the Swell Season.
Segel joined Glen Hansard, Markéta Irglová, and company on the Wiltern Theater stage in LA last night, singing a tune he wrote during a drink-fueled meeting between Segel, actor Paul Rudd, and Hansard prior to the show. Watch hereor below as Segel serenades the audience about his desire to “use [his] celebrity status to make love to a Swell Season fan tonight.”
