PATTON OSWALT

Comedian, author, script doctor, actor, father, nerd ; all terms applicable to Patton Oswalt. His career began with the rise of alternative comics and despite personal struggles and loses, he is still going strong today with multiple specials available on Netflix (one he won an Emmy for), appearances in all sorts of movies and continuing to do stand up gigs when he's not taking care of his daughter.

His storytelling based comedic style illustrates his experiences with all of these things, and in this episode, Shafi, Cody and Ryan try to break down how Patton draws audiences in to these stories, how he continually punches throughout and if there is anything they can incorporate to their own stand-up.
