From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Patton Oswalt (born January 27, 1969, in Portsmouth, Virginia, USA) is a comedian, actor and writer who first began headlining comedy clubs in 1996. After starring in his own comedy special for HBO in 1997 he went on to garner notable roles in films and television shows including Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia and The King of Queens on CBS. He attended the College of William and Mary where he was initiated into the Alpha Theta Chapter of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity.

Oswalt's style of stand-up comedy is often described as acerbic, sarcastic and covers a great deal of subject matter. Topics range from pop culture frivolity such as comic book supervillains and 1980s hair metal to deeper societal issues like American excess, rampant materialism and foreign policy. Critics have recognized Oswalt for employing keen wit, biting insight and unabashed love of the absurd.

In 2004 Oswalt released a comedy album entitled Feelin' Kinda Patton and later that year a longer, unedited version of the same recording called 222.
