Patton has been a stand-up comedian for almost twenty years and this is his second CD. Lazy...or maybe busy. He's appeared in over twenty movies, including "Magnolia", "Reno 911!: Miami", and the documentary "The Comedians Of Comedy", which he also created and produced. He played Spence on "The King Of Queens" for nine seasons, is a regular on "Reno 911!", a frequent guest on Conan and Jimmy Kimmel, and a recurring voice actor on "Kim Possible", "SpongeBob SquarePants", "Aqua Teen Hunger Force", and "Crank Yankers". He's a regular columnist in the NY Times Magazine and was an uncredited writer on the "Borat" movie. He's also the lead voice in this summer's Pixar movie, "Ratatouille", playing a rat named Remy. This is his first CD on Sub Pop and it includes a DVD with one hour of stand-up.

I'm Gonna Fill Your Hoo Haa with Goof Juice! Jul 20, 2007
By Quagland Clevemire
If you're a fan of Patton, this material is just as strong and cutting as "feelin' kinda patton." What's great about this release is that there is also a DVD that has a set from Atlanta's 40-watt along with some other footage of Patton just riffing on different topics.
His takes on different political and social issues is fresh and witty. He's brutally honest and insightful and he's evolved into one of the premier stand-up acts working today. There's always a sense of humanity in his act and that's what makes Patton's appeal so broad. He might be saying something that is mostly cynical but it's always tempered with his kind disposition and witty outlook on life. Beyond all of that, he's an incredible comedy writer and his material on this release is masterfully constructed and his delivery is just as sharp.

I laughed, I cried, I bought some for friends! Funny times ten to the X. Jul 17, 2007
I am a Patton fan and I was expecting to be amused. However, I got more laugh-out-loud moments from this CD than I have from any recent comedy CD. There isn't a bad routine. For me, the gems are "Death Bed" and "Physics for Poets". However, I can say I honestly laughed with every track.
I like the inclusion of the DVD as it allows you to watch the genesis of the material. Patton is a distinct physical presence and that adds to the humor.
My husband rarely finds any stand-up comedy funny. However, as I was playing the CD I saw tears of laughter streaming down his face durng "Physics for Poets". It's that good.

Funniest act I've heard in a long time Jan 02, 2009
By Mr. Ugly
I'm usually pretty hard to please when it comes to comedy. Somehow it just takes quite a bit to get more than a smile or chuckle out of me. But this CD had me sputtering with laughter. Patton Oswalt alternates between self-deprecating, sarcastic, and mocking, but never forgets to be funny. I love his timing, delivery, and totally relatable point of view. Ed Wynn once said "A comedian is not a man who says funny things. A comedian is one who says things funny." Patton Oswalt totally embodies this philosophy, eschewing formulaic jokes and cheap laughs in favor of hilarious story-telling.
The included DVD contains a brief intro from Patton, followed by a live performance of the same act from the CD, but at an earlier time. So this gives you a chance to see how some of the jokes evolved before the performance that went onto the CD. The DVD is pretty cool, but the encounter with a heckler on the audio CD is priceless and not to be missed.
Just a note, a few people I recommended this to were turned off by the foul language, but I have to emphasize that Patton Oswalt doesn't rely on four letter words to make his jokes funny. The language is just part of his voice and, I feel, doesn't detract from the performance at all.

You know a comic is good when he can take on hecklers this well. Mar 08, 2009
By Dylan R. Senff
Patton's stand up line is always a unique experience that takes the pop-culture of today, and bends it over with his nerd perspective on life and his way on surviving it. Even when a (probobly drunken) heckler opposes his act, he retaliates to make the joke even greater then before, which is the true sign of a comedian that can take any situation and end it with laughs.

More great stuff from Patton Aug 01, 2007
To me, Patton Oswalt is the funniest comedian around right now. He can be really goofy one second and be intelligent and political the next, but he's always funny and never comes off as preachy. It seems like some comedians these days are just really cynical and can't laugh at themselves and it makes their stuff hard to listen to. Thankfully, Oswalt avoids that kind of stuff. I'm really not describing his act very well, but that probably doesn't matter too much because I'm guessing you're already familiar with his stuff if you're reading this.
If you liked Patton's earlier stuff then this CD will not let you down. I don't think it's quite as good as Feelin' Kinda Patton, but it's still pretty great. Most of the bits on here are pretty short, which is good because none of them go on longer than they should. Definitely a comedy CD you'll want to listen to a few times (which is pretty rare with comedy albums) and turn friends onto. The DVD is a nice bonus and contains a stand up act with different versions of the jokes on the CD.
My favorite tracks: America Has Spoken, Clean Filth, At Midnight I Will Kill George Lucas with a Shovel, and Death Bed.
