Patton Oswalt: Annihilation

Critics Consensus

A disarmingly perceptive exploration of loss, Patton Oswalt: Annihilation finds the comic deftly balancing his off-beat humor with an profoundly cathartic edge.

  • Patton Oswalt goes back to work in this brutally funny instant-classic stand-up special, 18 months after the sudden death of his wife, true-crime writer Michelle McNamara.

  • That subject matter doesn't exactly scream "stand-up special", but out of his devastating loss, Oswalt managed to craft something funny and profound.

    Jul 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Annihilation is courageous most as evidence of a master comedian choosing to continue to think, even when thought is the enemy.

  • There aren't many stand-up comics with the courage to take audiences into the depths of some dark emotions and and still bring them back laughing.

    Oct 26, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It's a beautiful tonal balancing act for an artist to even attempt an anecdote that both makes you laugh and cry, but Oswalt does it simply by being a talented, natural speaker.

    Oct 17, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Annihilation isn't a call for sympathy, it's a plea for empathy.
