How do creatives get creative? Get productive? Get started? For comedian Patton Oswalt – an icon of the alternative comedy world – the laughs started with mimicry. He could do Bill Cosby cold. And Steve Martin. And Richard Pryor. Then, just as he was taking off, alongside Sarah Silverman and Louis CK and Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt got obsessed – with movies. As in addicted. Morning, noon and night. All night. If he just watched enough, he could become a great director, too, right? This hour On Point: alt-comedy headliner Patton Oswalt, movie fiend.

A conversation with Patton Oswalt.
Stand-up comic, actor, voiceover specialist, author…Patton Oswalt wears many hats and wears them well. Whether you know him from The King of Queens or Ratatouille, a video game, solo comedy special or a cartoon series, he’s always sharp-minded and original. He’s also a great conversationalist, which made an hour fly by for Leonard and Jessie. (This episode was recorded before the recent revelation that his late wife’s true-crime book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark led to the arrest of a serial killer who terrorized the San Francisco Bay area for more than a decade.)
This week’s Comedy Bing Buh has Scott & co-host Traci Rearden welcome back Patton Oswalt to answer some burning questions in honor of his new special Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time. How many guns should a person own? What exactly is a reverse April…
Elvis Mitchell talks to comedian, actor, and ‘celebrant’ Patton Oswalt.
Nevermind the superhero stories; after his wife died, Oswalt wasn’t motivated to channel his loss into fitness or crime fighting. He says so far push-ups have not been a part of his grieving process.
Cracking wise with Patton Oswalt.
