Patton Oswalt has been a stand-up comedian for almost twenty years—and here’s his second full-length comedy album. It’s his first release on Sub Pop Records, who have not been tricked into thinking he’s some sort of Czech death metal band.
Werewolves and Lollipops is the follow-up to 2004’s mildly-selling Feelin’ Kinda Patton (United Musicians). The new album comes packaged with a revolutionary image-and-sound delivery system called a “DVD,” on which purchasers can see Patton performing much of this material live at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA. He also shoots guns, bowls, and eats things1.
The album contains, among other things, Oswalt’s rants about KFC, G-rated smut, late-life pregnancy, and escaping the pull of the coolest places on Earth. An earlier press release from Sub Pop describes Oswalt’s comedy as, “…evocative of other Czech doom-noise outfits such as Clebknopf’s Stagnant Nightmare, Mortuary Picnic and Flelv.”
Patton has appeared in over twenty movies, including Magnolia, Reno 911!: Miami and the documentary The Comedians of Comedy, which he also created and produced. On the set of Blade: Trinity, Wesley Snipes would only answer Patton if Patton called him “Blade2".
In addition to playing the character “Spence” for nine seasons on the CBS sitcom The King of Queens, he’s a frequent guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He’s also a recurring voice actor on Kim Possible, SpongeBob SquarePants, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Crank Yankers, and video games like the Grand Theft Auto series. He gets killed in a lot of those. He’s also appeared on programs like Seinfeld, Mr. Show and Newsradio, where he wasn’t killed.
Oswalt is also a regular columnist for _The New York Times…
