Patton Oswalt Sounds Off

Comedian Patton Oswalt is here to talk about his new Netflix special ‘I Love Everything.’ The title is a huge turnaround from his 2017 special ‘Annihilation’ and on today’s episode Patton opens up about how far he’s come emotionally since the sudden death of his former wife, ‘I’ll Be Gone in the Dark’ author Michelle McNamara. The comedian, who turned 50 last year, also shares his unvarnished thoughts on the futility of making Trump jokes, why he thinks Fox News is the “height of evil” for pushing the country to reopen during a pandemic, and the fate he believes the Golden State Killer deserves. Then he looks back on highlights from his career, including his acting debut as a video store clerk on ‘Seinfeld,’ his late-night stand-up debut on ‘Conan,’ his epic ‘Star Wars’ filibuster on ‘Parks and Rec’ and a lot more.
