A comedian, actor, and writer, Patton Oswalt has recorded seven stand-up comedy TV specials and released five critically-acclaimed albums, including his Grammy-winning Talking for Clapping (for which the one-hour special of the same name earned him an Emmy) and Grammy-nominated Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time, which debuted in 2014. Finest Hour also received a Grammy nomination for “Best Comedy Album,” as well as a Showtime one-hour special of the same name. In 2009, Patton received his first Grammy nomination for his album My Weakness Is Strong (Warner Brothers Records).
From his award-winning comedy specials to his many memorable film roles and guest appearances on his favorite TV shows (including Parks and Recreation, for which he received a TV Critics Choice Award), Oswalt continues to choose work that inspires him and entertains audiences.
Last October, Oswalt released his special Annihilation on Netflix to critical acclaim as he addressed his own devastating loss and dealing with the unexplainable, while making it all painfully funny.
