Comedy CD Review: Patton Oswalt- Finest Hour


Patton Oswalt, comedian and actor offers up this hilarious new CD “Finest Hour.” In his newest comedy special, recorded in Seattle, Oswalt talks about fatherhood, incontinent monkeys, crack heads and Jesus. As a 20-year veteran of the stand-up comedy scene, with three previous albums, concert DVDs, his own comedy tour and various acting and voiceover roles under his belt, Oswalt has become ubiquitous in the world of stand-up. His fourth (and quite possibly his best) album "Finest Hour" will be released by COMEDY CENTRAL Records on Tuesday, September 20, 2011. This album is way too short, I could not stop laughing, and when I did, it was only to take a breath. Patton puts on this cherub like smile and then smacks you with a 2x4 of comedy. His humorous delivery of life’s observations is what we all think about but don’t say; I especially loved his points of parenting, the power of Jesus and the ham incident. Parental advisory, the album does use a loving spoonful of colorful language, but it’s not senseless, it stands to prove a point that people have devolved, and the human brain is a rat trapped in a cage and reality is a stick poking at the rat, listen to the album, you’ll get it. Look for it in stores on September 20th or online at Comedy Central.
