Patton Oswalt

Stand Up Comedy

Perhaps best known for his role as Spence Olchin on 'The King of Queens,' Patton Oswalt's style of stand-up comedy is often described as acerbic and sarcastic, and it covers topics ranging from pop culture frivolity such as comic book supervillains and 1980s hair metal to deeper societal issues like American excess, rampant materialism, foreign policy, and religion (Oswalt is an avowed atheist himself). Quite a few of his routines are about vice, especially pornography and alcohol. A famous line: "Do you think you have a problem when you refer to all alcohol as 'pain-go-bye-bye-juice'?" Oswalt has described himself as a "man without a country" in that he hates both George W. Bush and hippies. In February 2004, some jokes critical of hippies got him booed off the stage in San Francisco, while a diatribe against president George W. Bush got him booed off in Pittsburgh. In a subsequent tour with 'The Comedians of Comedy' he returned to Pittsburgh and was well received. Recent projects include the Pixar animated comedy 'Ratatouille,' plus the films 'Balls of Fury' and 'All Roads Lead Home.'

Lewis Black

Stand Up Comedy

Lewis Black's insights and love/hate relationship with America are brilliantly expressed in his concerts and TV appearances worldwide. Perhaps best known for his hilarious rants on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," Lewis' live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He yells so they don't have to. He is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves silly while still making making compelling points about the absurdity of our world.
