Patton Oswalt has become ubiquitous. Just in the last year or so you've seen him guest star on TV shows as varied as Portlandia, Justified, Two and a Half Men and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, while narrating The Goldbergs and leading Adult Swim's delightfully weird The Heart, She Hollers. Not bad for "a former wedding deejay from Northern Virginia" (as his Twitter bio describes him to his nearly 1.6 million followers). His stand-up style has shifted away from the pop-culture rants of his younger days, but his writerly eye for detail makes his more introspective material shine.
