Pop Culture Thoughts
15 December 2018 | by popculturethoughtsSee all my reviews

One of the most sincere and heartfelt live comedy performances I've seen, Patton Oswalt's first recorded show since the tragic, unexpected passing of his wife last year has all the poignancy and emotion one can expect from the context. However, that isn't to say that this is a dark show: Quite the opposite really, there's plenty of joy and silliness to accompany the heaviness, not to mention a healthy dose of cathartic political commentary that's as strong as anything he's ever done before. Ultimately this is a remarkable, memorable show thanks not to its context but instead because Oswalt clearly relishes his platform, and uses it to spread positivity and life lessons to an engaged audience hanging on to his every word.
