  1. His awesomeness can be summed up in one phrase re: a particular KFC dish: "A failure pile in a sadness bowl."

  2. i truly think Patton is one of the under-rated artist out there.
    When I saw his act in "My weakness is strong", I dont think I ever laughed so hard in my life. Patton is the funniest comic out right now.
    Thanks and I hope I win!

  3. Patton is by FAR the best comedian working today. Incisive observational humor, peppered with smart pop-culture (read: nerd) references throughout, makes him a laugh riot. I defy anyone to watch/listen to My Weakness is Strong and listen to him talk about "B-word fat" and not lose their shit.

    Hope I win. Desperately.

  4. I saw Patton Oswalt @ Bridgetown Comedy Festival in '08 – and when he called out that girl with the pint-size epilepsy warning dog, I died and went to heaven.
    "When people see a tiny dog barking excitedly, they're not going to think 'OMG! Someone's having an epileptic seizure – call 911!' No, they're going to do what everyone here just did – AWWWWWWW."

    Let me see him. I shook his hand once, give me the chance to do it again.

  5. Patton's piece on the Comedy Death Ray album about the KFC Snacker's bowl should not be missed. It is an astounding piece of social commentary. Would love to see him live. His new CD is fantastic, as well.

  6. Kind of like that HBO show, The Wire, everyone keeps telling me how awesome Patton Oswalt is, but like Patton and his treadmill, other things keep getting my attention.

  7. Well, I won't comment about how awesome and great Patton Oswalt is because he'd be the first to call me out (plus it's what all the kids are doing: see above, below). After all I'm a huge fan, but I haven't been out lighting up the comments sections on my favorite comedian websites about his purported greatness.

    So, I'll say this, I was moved by his willingness to discuss his battle with depression on "My Weakness is Strong." It's something a lot of celebrities, particularly comedians (RIP Richard Jeni), can't or won't talk about. Every time someone sees Patton Oswalt talk about it AND be funny, it helps remove a bit of the stigma related to mental illness.

    Anyway, give me the tickets!

  8. Seeing this will help me move out of my mom's basement eating my failure pile, stacked inside my misery bowl.

  9. Patton Oswalt is a genius — one of the best stand-ups working, and one of the best in my 20 years of following the art form. I'd place him up there with Louis CK and Bill Hicks as consistently surprising and hilarious.

  10. I heard he said Portland is a city with very low testosterone levels, with which I agree, and for which reason I would like these tickets.

  11. Love him! Sadly missed him at Bridgetown though. Maybe this'll make up for it?!

  12. Anyone who draws comparisons to Bill Hicks, I have to check out.

  13. I've always wanted to see Patton Oswalt live and have yet to get the chance. Those tickets won't be wasted on a fan like me!

  14. Thanks for the tickets Geoff! I'm so excited to see Patton Oswalt again! (and yes, I'm going to call him first+last at all times)
