"PATTON OSWALT: TRAGEDY PLUS COMEDY EQUALS TIME"

World Premiere Comedy Special Airs Friday, January 17, 2013 at 10PM ET

In his latest stand-up special, directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, comedian Patton Oswalt tackles issues ranging from frozen food to the future of America. He delivers a blistering set for a packed house at San Diego's Spreckels Theater with his trademark blend of acerbic wit and unabashed silliness.

As a comedian, Oswalt has shot four TV specials and recorded four critically acclaimed albums, including Finest Hour, which received a Grammy nomination in 2011 for "Best Comedy Album." In 2009, he received his first Grammy nomination for his album My Weakness Is Strong.

In addition to his Grammy-nominated stand-up work, Oswalt has also found success on the big screen. This December, he will appear in the comedy The Secret Life of Walter Mitty with Ben Stiller. In 2012, Oswalt was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for his brilliant performance in Jason Reitman's film Young Adult, starring Charlize Theron. In 2009, he received critical acclaim for his performance in Robert Siegel's Big Fan, which was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award; Oswalt earned a Gotham Award nomination for his performance. On the small screen, Oswalt is known for his many memorable guest roles on TV shows, including "Parks and Recreation" (2013 TV Critics Choice Award winner), "Portlandia," "Justified," "Two and a Half Men," and as the narrator of ABC's new comedy "The Goldbergs."

Patton Oswalt: Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time is executive produced by Patton Oswalt, John Irwin and Generate's Dave Rath. Bobcat Goldthwait directs and Casey Spira is the producer. For EPIX, Ross Bernard is executive in charge, Valerie Bishop is production manager and Judy Pastore is consulting producer. The special was produced by Comedy Central, which will host its basic cable premiere in April 2014. Jonas Larsen and JoAnn Grigioni are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
