'Big Fan' - April 1, 2009 (AFI Dallas)
Patton Oswalt

It slowly dawned on me after mentioning Patton Oswalt's participation in the upcoming New York Comedy Festival that I was neglecting a small pile of other bits of Patton Oswalt related news. To begin with, Patton is about to embark on a tour that will have him zig-zagging all over the country for the next few months. The entire schedule is below, but what you may not know is that he'll be at COMIX on August 16th. And it's only FIVE BUCKS. Yowza! He's part of a stellar line-up. Buy. Tickets. Now.

On August 25, Patton has a new live album and DVD coming out on Warner Brothers Records (no more Sub Pop?). It is entitled My Weakness is Strong! and features an hour of new material. The CD is pretty straightforward and contains the full hour long performance. The DVD, however, contains the full hour long performance as well as bonus features including some short films and more! Watch the trailer below.

I mentioned Patton's starring role in the film Big Fan a while back. Be advised that it is opening at the Angelika Film Center on August 28th. But if you're feeling antsy, you can catch the film followed by a Q&A with writer/director Robert Siegel and actor Kevin Corrigan at the 6:30pm screening on August 26th at Planet Hollywood (1540 Broadway, NYC). There's also an 8:30pm screening that night, sans Q&A.

All dates and tickets and videos below...

I liked it when the Mcpoyles took the gang hostage and one of the brothers requested a reversible Planet Hollywood jacket on their list of demands.

Patton will also be performing all 3 nights at Bumbershoot.

Damn. Gonna miss Patton. But are those $5 Comix shows also of the "two drink minimum" variety? Those are the suck.

Will be back in town in time for that $5 show that includes Anthony Jeselnik. He was so fucking good at the Benson Interruption I feel like I gotta see him again while I'm still interested.

Patton only did five minutes last night, and at least one of those minutes was the "b-word" bit he did on Conan a few weeks back. Still, pretty good at $5.

What's the deal with the Town Hall show? It's 10am EDT but searching for tickets doesn't return anything.

They went on sale at 10am this morning... it may have sold out already?

"What's the deal with the Town Hall show? It's 10am EDT but searching for tickets doesn't return anything."

Mike Birbiglia says that ticketmaster has his onsale totally screwed up and I assume Patton is facing the same problem...
