A strong set from weak-chinned actor
26 November 2014 | by estreet-evaSee all my reviews

Oswalt has logged some of the more compelling character performances over the last few years with "Big Fan" and "Young Adult" as standouts. Turns out his stand-up entertains as well. He brings a broad set of references and flights of fancy to many oft-sown comedic fields including technology and dealing with the wife. To call his flourishes Robin-Williams-esque does not overstate the matter. The material stays saucey and very much adult but doesn't cross the line into the Sarah Silverman shock comedy so much in vogue. It also avoids the pedestrian, family-oriented stuff from comedians most particularly Jim Gaffigan. The set lacks a big ending somewhat chugging into the station on a story of Oswalt's experience opening for a magician/comedian somewhere in rural America. Before that, however, lots of imaginative material and strong laughs. In short, whether or not you are a fan, worth a viewing.
