Let's let Patton Oswalt write his own damn blurb for Patton Oswalt & Friends . “On February 27 of this year, before leaving for a month of unpleasantness in New York, I did one of my bimonthly Patton Oswalt and Friends shows at The Largo. The lineup was Blaine Capatch, Karen Kilgariff and Eddie Pepitone. I don't know what happened that night, but good Lord, the three of us and the audience gelled so perfectly. I am nakedly trying to re-create that atmosphere and that show. I hope I don't come off like Bill Murray, maniacally reliving Groundhog's Day with Andie MacDowell, ruining a spontaneous snowball fight with desperate hilarity. But Blaine, Karen and especially Eddie are three of my favorite performers right now, and this is a show I could not be more excited to get to watch, let alone perform on. If you were at the original show in February, I can pretty much guarantee you that, in the five months since they performed, they've got all new, all-killer stuff.” Thanks PattonOswalt.com!
