I'm a BIG fan of Patton Oswalt the actor... but I only discovered his stand-up about a year or so ago. I was seriously missing out. Patton's quickly on the fast track to becoming one of my favorite stand-up comedians ever (I should note that I still need to educate myself in the ways of late greats like George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Bill Hicks, etc.), so I wanted to make a thread about him. Post what you've listened to/seen of his, favorite quotes, and, well, why do we love this geek so much?
Anyway, I'll start us off. Here's what I've listened to/seen:
Werewolves and Lollipops-The full album. Holy shit, nearly everything on here is solid fried gold. Particular highlights include the famous KFC Famous Bowls rant, the complete destruction of a dumbass heckler, comparing himself to a bridge troll and meeting Brian Dennehy at the Batman Begins premiere, and of course his musings on how the hell something like Death Bed got made.
Finest Hour-Full album. It's not Werewolves, but it's pretty goddamn good. I especially love him discussing what he'd like to do to the Gay Best Friend cliche in movies, Jesus on the X-Men, and what a valid argument against gay marriage might actually look like.
Otherwise I've just seen or heard bits and pieces of stuff from My Weakness is Strong (LOVE the rat story, how Halloween is now ruined for him thanks to Ratatouille giving him younger fans, Sad Boy in the apocalypse, and the "sky cake" religion routine), No Reason To Complain or Feelin' Kinda Patton. I don't remember which album the 7-minute destruction of the awful "Christmas Shoes" song is from, but that's easily one of my all-time favorite bits from him.
I think one of the things I really love about him is that he doesn't seem to recycle anything. He's always got something new to talk about.
