Comedian, actor and writer Patton Oswalt announces a date for Dublin’s Vicar St.
Patton Oswalt continues to find success in all areas of entertainment. From his award-winning comedy specials to his many memorable film roles and guest appearances on his favourite TV shows (including Parks and Recreation, for which he received a TV Critics Choice Award), Oswalt continues to choose work that inspires him and entertains audiences.
This past October, Oswalt released his special Annihilation on Netflix to critical acclaim as he addressed his own devastating loss and dealing with the unexplainable, while making it all painfully funny. Last year, he won the Emmy for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special” for his sixth comedy special Talking for Clapping (Netflix).
As a comedian, Oswalt has shot seven TV specials and released five critically acclaimed albums, including his Grammy-winning Talking for Clapping and Grammy-nominated Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time, which debuted in 2014. Finest Hour also received a Grammy nomination for “Best Comedy Album,” as well as a Showtime one-hour special of the same name. In 2009, Patton received his first Grammy nomination for his album My Weakness Is Strong (Warner Brothers Records).
Oswalt starred in The Comedians of Comedy, which was shot as an independent feature film, a TV series, and a long running tour. He tours regularly and extensively, headlining in the United States, Canada, and the UK. Oswalt also has a regular, bi-monthly show at the new Largo at the Coronet Theater in Los Angeles.
Oswalt has appeared in many films, including The Secret Life of Walter Mitty with Ben Stiller, Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant!, Observe and Report alongside Seth Rogen, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia, as well as Zoolander, Starsky and Hutch, and Reno 911!: Miami, among many others. He also provided the voice for Remy the rat in Pixar’s Oscar-winning Ratatouille, and has voiced characters on TV shows such as Archer, BoJack Horseman, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Word Girl. He voices the lead character Happy on SyFy’s Happy, which premiered in December 2017. He is also the narrator on ABC’s hit comedy The Goldbergs.
Both of his published books Zombie Spaceship Wasteland (2011) and Silver Screen Fiend (2015) are New York Times Best Sellers.
