Look, you already know that Patton Oswalt's awesome. His resume's amazingly impressive, boasting hundreds of stand up performances, a couple dozen movies (hell, he voiced the lead in a damn Oscar winner!), and television glory. He has literally tens of fans. We don't need to sell you on Patton. So, instead, we're going to whet your appetite with some choice phrases, fresh from the elfin filth-monger's very lips!
• Brian Dennehy comes up behind me like an Archangel and says, ''Character actors! Who gives a f*ck if we're fat!''
• Wait for the wintery freshness of mace, 'cause it's coming.
• I'd like a failure pile in a sadness bowl!
• Science! We're all about coulda, not shoulda.
• Give your mom a fish, and let's go to the White House.
• If Paris Hilton could get cancer of the AIDS of the leukemia, that'd be awesome.
• My geekiness is starting to get in the way of my nerdiness.
• For 3 years, all I knew was Chewbacca was real and black people don't kill you for your cell phones.
• I still miss the dating scene, because it's a fun nightmare. It's a nightmare with boners in it.
As you'll no doubt recognize, only a true comedic genius could connect the dots, creating the masterpiece of wit, wisdom, and brilliant ridiculousness we call ''Werewolves and Lollipops.'' For doing the work-and possibly the drugs-to bring home this wide-ranging, bewildering, and pitch-perfect record, Stand Up! Records extends our heart-felt thanks to Patton Oswalt.

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.
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.
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.
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.
There were times that I had to pause the album because I was laughing so hard. In fact, I was listening to it in a car with some friends and the driver was cracking up so much that we had to switch back to radio, out of fear his shaking laugher would cause us to swerve into another lane and die a fiery, metallic death.
This CD/DVD combo is very interesting because the DVD gives you a preview of the CD in its "rough" form, before all the jokes were polished. Some were not even kept for the CD.
I'd recommend watching the DVD first and then listening to the CD to get a glimpse of how the material was sharpened into its final, side-splitting form.
Many thanks, Patton, for all the gutbucket belly laughs! I hope to see you in concert sometime soon!

If you're open minded to explicit sexual material then you can ignore this review. Personally, I find it a bit degrading. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Dale E. Yeatts

I really enjoy this standup comedian. His section about going back in time and saving Star Wars is truly entertaining.Published on March 18, 2014 by Kale Tippit
Patton rocks! I like that there are two sections - the big formal event and also a show at a smaller venue where he is practicing / refining his routine.Published on December 4, 2013 by Amazon Customer
