Critic Reviews for Patton Oswalt: Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time

  • While Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time might not be a watershed hour of stand-up -- one that doesn't challenge audiences, break taboos or illuminate ordinary things in a new light -- "Dad" Patton is a decent guy to spend an hour with.

  • Oswalt is a stand-up comedian at his peak, who can command an audience's total attention even when working with quieter energy or telling longer stories punctuated by fewer jokes.

  • The alt-comedy godfather Patton Oswalt has mellowed since the days when he imagined going back in time before George Lucas made the "Star Wars" prequels and killing him with a shovel. On his new special, he still rants, but sparingly.

  • Don't get me wrong; Oswalt lands plenty of blows in this hour-long set. It's just that the majority of his material doesn't have as much of an impact as it could have.

  • "Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time" may not be the best introduction to Oswalt for neophytes, but it connects strongly for those familiar with and appreciative of his well-defined sensibility.
