  • Dropping in on Patton Oswalt at the NY Comedy Festival

    Patton Oswalt took the stage at Town Hall Friday night for one of his many New York Comedy Festival performances. His set consisted of mainly new material which he’s prepping for the recording and release sometime in 2013 so register that piece of news in your brain. While taking a break in the middle of his act to talk about the recent elect.

    While we’re not going to spoil any of his new material there’s some killer stuff about her young daughter getting a bit racist, how he’s blissfully and peacefully suicidal, looking at Lean Cuisine while listening to Toto’s song “Africa,” and his fitness goal of not being in a rascal scooter by the time his daughter graduates high school.

    Towards the end of the set, Patton stated that he still has a couple more jokes in the process of being fleshed out. So with the remaining time he did a bit of comedy on demand and let the audience to shout out and ask him to perform bits from his catalog. As I yelled for “The Ham Incident,” many were yelling for the likes of “The Vomit Bag” and “The Parking Ticket.” In lieu of the upcoming holidays and the location, he ended up performing “Christmas Shoes” and “The Horror of New York City.”
