A personal drama is just not funny and should not be included in a stand-up comedy
9 May 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

In the description it says this is Patton Oswalt's best show. Well if it is so then I won't watch any other of his shows because I didn't think there were much funny moments in Annihilation. Lately I've been watching alot of stand-up comedies and this one was the one I liked the least. When you just watched a Jim Jefferies show and then you watch this one it is like watching Premier League soccer followed by a soccer game from Luxemburg. Patton Oswalt had a couple okay jokes about Trump, but for a strange reason this show became just unfunny. That he just lost his wife is a tragedy and I honestly think he should not have included that in his show, nor the daughter stuff he spoke about. I don't want to hear sad stories when I watch a stand-up comedy, and that was exactly what it was, and not just for a couple seconds. No he would just continue with that story, adding some jokes that were way too long and not really funny. I guess this will be my only Oswalt show then if this was his best work.
