7 September 2009 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

I have seen/heard about 6 Oswalt specials/TV appearances, and I would rank this second to Feeling Kinda Patton. That isn't faint praise, since I consider Feeling Kinda Patton to be in my top five comedy sets of all time. My Weakness is Strong is brilliant, simply brilliant creativity applied to ordinary events that might otherwise blow right passed the rest of the world. That's Oswalt's genius, in my opinion. There are moments in life where you don't see how insanely humorous it could be until someone tells you. Just from the first bit about text messaging, which would fail in nearly every comics hands, is delivered in such a way that makes you appreciate the bizarre events of everyday.

I cried laughing twice. Cried laughing, I haven't done that in I don't know how long. No spoilers, but I'll just say the parts that got me involved an iPod case and then a Tom Waits song.

Kudos, Mr. Oswalt. I loved it all.
