David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts says
A popular fixture on the stand-up comedy circuit since the late 1990s, actor and writer Patton Oswalt has balanced mainstream acceptance on the popular CBS sitcom King of Queens and Pixar’s Ratatouille (he provided the voice of Remy, the rat, in the Oscar®- winning animated film) with indie popularity from voice work on countless Adult Swim animated series’ and the Comedians of Comedy tour – a project which presented alternative-minded comics in a rock club setting.

He has released a number of top-selling albums including Werewolves and Lollipops and Patton Oswalt: Finest Hour and best-selling books like 2015’s Silver Screen Fiend: Learning About Life from an Addiction to Film.

Oswalt has appeared in a number of feature films including Balls of Fury, Big Fan, The Informant! and Young Adult and television projects including HBO’s Veep, ABC’s The Goldbergs and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., USA’s Burn Notice, the FX series Justified and Showtime’s The United States of Tara, among many others.
