Comedian Patton Oswalt—one of Generation X’s greatest products—is bringing his “Who’s Ready to Laugh?” tour to Clearwater’s Capitol Bilheimer Theatre, Thursday, Dec. 30.
Like many fans, I follow Oswalt’s journey on Instagram and Twitter and cried while he raised his daughter Alice while being a widower. I cheered him on when he found new love with 1980s screen-queen Meredith Salenger, bought the book and watched the HBO’s series about the Golden State Killer which his wife, Michelle McNamara, was working on when she died (Oswalt helped to get it finished and released).
Though Oswalt is a megastar with tons of movies (Ratatouille, Young Adult), and TV shows (M.O.D.O.K., King of Queens) under his belt, it's his sorta geek, sorta regular-guy, best dad ever role that truly makes him, him.
You don’t have to be middle-aged to (almost) pee your pants while taking in his takes on random subjects such as: hiking when you’re 50, sex when you’re 50, eating at Denny’s, being a wedding DJ, Phil Collins, depression, and if you’re lucky, Brian Dennehy.
He’s honest and he’s Patton Oswalt and we love him.
