5.0 out of 5 stars A very funny man gets his toys taken away October 20, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Patton Oswalt dreaded morphing into the comic whose material becomes weak and clean after he gets sober, gets married, and has children. If anything, sobriety (or near-sobriety), a wife, and a child have made Oswalt more funny. He openly longs for Scotch and weed. His reflections on the immaturity and perpetual boyhood it requires to choose those things over responsibility brings out more intelligent and poignant comedy than his drunker days. That is, stability has sharpened rather than blunted Oswalt's comedy, and this album is his most refined thus far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent but very funny August 28, 2009
By D
Format:Audio CD
This album is no "Werewolves and Lollipops", but that recording is the most insanely hilarious stand-up comedy routine I've ever heard, so I guess I can't quite expect anything else to measure up to that. And some of the moments here ("Treadmill", "Rats", "Orgy") are every bit as funny as the stuff on W&L, so it still ranks as a pretty great routine. Fans of Oswalt's sick, smart humor will likely enjoy it a lot.

3.0 out of 5 stars As the 3 star description says, It's OK June 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I first listened to Werewolves and Lollipops, and then went back and found Feeling Kinda Patton. I loved the former the first time through, and I still do. The latter took time to grow on me, but I've grown to love that one as well, though not as much as his sophomore effort. So when I heard he had a new comedy album coming out, I got really excited. But the product was a bit of a letdown. Patton Oswalt is a comic genius, and I don't say that lightly. Even jokes that I don't find funny have intelligent thought behind them, and that is, I think, what good comedy does, it draws you in and makes you wonder how a serious subject can be turned on its side and squeezed for it comedy value. A previous reviewer called this album "Incosistent," and I agree. However, as with all forms of entertainment, what is completely the worst and un-funniest thing to me might just as easily get someone else to laugh til it hurts.

It happens to all performers, and especially comedians, as big changes happen in their lives, especially when it comes to marriage and kids (some comedians even get away with talking EXCLUSIVELY about those two things). A lot more of this album is dedicated to talking about married life and not being able to drink scotch or smoke weed, as for me it isn't THAT funny, it's sort of a filler between the funnier bits (Text, Treadmill, and Orgy). Those are high points in album, sprinkled here and there with a funny observation, but overall it's a much weaker album to me than the two previous ones.

I've talked about what doesn't work for me in the album, but I have to tag it with this, and it's something that hasn't happened with Patton yet: He doesn't reuse material to strengthen an album. And for that I applaud him.

1.0 out of 5 stars His weakest material to date June 22, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I'm a Patton Oswalt fan so I feel I have a good foundation of his material and sense of humor. I was extremely disappointed with this effort from him. It wasn't very funny and he's typically very funny. I would buy one of his other offerings instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Special from my Favorite Comedian! May 28, 2013
By Scott
Format:Audio CD
Patton's by far my favorite comedian and this album doesn't disappoint. I bought it a little late, but it's worth the purchase. I was surprised to find upon opening, it comes packaged with a DVD of the special the recording was taken from which also includes some extras! Fans who haven't already, pick this one up!

5.0 out of 5 stars All I know... May 26, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
is this made me laugh pretty hard!

As a comedy fan, I'm easy to please. I like Marc Maron, Patton Oswalt, and anyone else that doesn't require a mallet and a watermelon.

If you want the kind of comedy that will make coffee come out your nose, it's right here.

Differences between the CD/DVD and DVD/CD?
I asked Patton about this on his Facebook. He says there is no difference between the DVD/CD and the CD/DVD. *Shrug*
