iTunes Review

As laugh luminaries have proven, parenthood makes for some awesome jokes. Patton Oswalt entered fatherhood before recording his fourth album, and his new muse proves sidesplitting—especially when he brings in jokes about parents in sweatpants. He also revels in the hilarity of how his own mother and father use their newfound grandparent roles to defend the outdated parenting methods they practiced on Oswalt and his brother in the ‘70s. But those jokes are just the tip of the iceberg; Oswalt’s at his best when sharing the kind of jaded acrimony that would make Louis C.K. blush. Trying to describe the hilarity that ensues when he opines that a monkey in a Napoleon hat should advertise Jennifer Aniston’s next romantic comedy would prove futile; you have to hear him tell the joke with his unapologetic aging-hipster cynicism. Other notable moments are like Oswalt’s version of MAD magazine’s “Lighter Side” column. Nobody is safe from his sardonic wit, especially circus folk, strippers, the morbidly obese, goths, Axl Rose, and Jesus.

Patton at his finest.

Most Brits won't ever experience Patton Oswalt. It's a crying shame too, he's one of his countries finest and this album does nothing but reinforce that. Bravo Mr. Oswalt. Truly wonderful.

Patton Oswalt Finest Hour

As a Brit who discovered Patton several years ago I still find him amazing. There are several American comedians who haven't found a voice in the UK, Patton is one of them. For first time listeners to his work I recommend his earlier CD 'Lollypops and Werewolves' for a groundbreaking performance. This Album brought me to tears with one simple gag.


I discovered Oswalt through my general interest in US stand-up, which I still feel has had the finest tradition of social commentary since Lenny Bruce, George Carlin and Bill Hicks. Oswalt half falls into this category, the other half being very clever gags he makes that don't necessarily have to be making a social point.

He is a great comedian between two comic genres and does both beautifully. Brits - check him out on streaming services too!

Comedian Patton Oswalt translated his acerbic, defiantly absurdist sensibility into surprising mainstream success, enjoying a thriving television and film career without dulling his edge. Born January 27, 1969, in Portsmouth, Virginia, Oswalt initially pursued a career as a writer, and also worked as a paralegal before performing his first open-mike gig at the Washington, D.C., club Garvin's in the summer of 1988. He began his professional standup career the following year and in 1992 relocated to...
