PATTON OSWALT HEADLINES HIS OWN ORIGINAL STAND-UP SPECIAL
"PATTON OSWALT: NO REASON TO COMPLAIN"
PREMIERES SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5 AT 10:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL®
NEW YORK, November 15, 2004 -- Patton Oswalt brings his biting view of life and people to the stage in the premiere of this COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special. "Patton Oswalt: No Reason to Complain" was taped in front of a live audience at New York City's John Jay College of Criminal Justice this past summer and premieres Sunday, December 5 at 10:00 p.m. only on COMEDY CENTRAL.
"Patton Oswalt: No Reason to Complain," repeats Sunday, December 5 at 12:00 a.m., Friday, December 10 at 10:30 p.m. and Friday, December 31 at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
In this special, Oswalt expresses his thoughts on many things in his life including his friends and his girlfriend in particular, who he thinks sucks the funny out of him. He explains why babies are a "bag of poop" and eating dinner at Black Angus is fit for a king. Oswalt holds nothing back when he delivers his punch-lines and bares his softer side when talking about his loved ones, since he, himself, is now in love. It's an hour of over-exuberant comedy and it is very funny.
"Patton Oswalt: No Reason to Complain," is the seventh installment of COMEDY CENTRAL's one-hour stand-up showcases. The special follows "Kevin James: Sweat the Small Stuff," "Jim Breuer: Hardcore," "Tracy Morgan: One Mic," "Wanda Sykes: Tongue Untied," "The Book Of David: The Cult Figure's Manifesto Starring David Alan Grier" and "Jay Mohr: My Turn" in establishing COMEDY CENTRAL as the home for premium stand-up specials.
Oswalt is best known as Spence on the hit CBS show "The King of Queens," currently in its sixth season. In 1999 Variety chose him as one of ten "Comedians to Watch" and in 2002 he was Entertainment Weekly's "It" Comedian. He is a regular on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien."
