Quotes

Patton Oswalt: I know I'm an old cis, white motherfucker, but don't give me shit because I didn't know the right term. Fucking RuPaul got into shit for saying tranny. Ru-fucking-Paul, who... She laid down on the barbed wire of discrimination throughout the '70s and '80s so this new generation could run across her back and yell at her for saying tranny.

Very Funny for a TV-MA Rating
25 April 2016 | by Thee_Justin_SaneSee all my reviews

I prefer my comedy a little more risqué (ie. Offensive), but I laughed out loud many times, which is unusual for me.

Patton is known for his "nerd-dom" and often does a lot of jokes about Star Wars, Marvel, and comic books; which isn't really 'my thing'. But he does not do that in this show.

He talks about San Francisco, the difficulties of being PC, being a father, the ease of old people getting drugs, crapping himself on stage, and a horrific birthday clown (my fav).

The hour went by, way too fast.

Another reviewer said it was too political, but there is only 4 minutes of political jokes in the 65 minute show. I assume this reviewer chose to be offended by a particular joke, and decided to cry about it here.

You would be hard pressed to find anything offensive in this show.
