Patton Oswalt

Irvine Improv

Most people know Patton Oswalt from his long stint as Spence Olchin on TV’s The King of Queens, voice work as Rémy in Pixar’s Ratatouille and frequent appearances on Comedy Central’s Reno 911! Not to knock those or his apparent Hollywood head-turner of a performance in Big Fan —a drama written and directed by former The Onion editor-in-chief and The Wrestler writer Robert D. Siegel that is due in moviehouses this October—but to witness truly inspired Pat Oswalt one must catch his live stand-up act. It’s like Revenge of the Nerds meets The Rachel Maddow Show meets Curb Your Enthusiasm, with Oswalt verbally deconstructing the things that piss him off so smartly, convincingly and hilariously that you wish he’d become the comedian-turned-U.S. senator before Al Franken did.
