NEW YORK, August 5, 2009 — Whip out the barbells and get ripped with Patton Oswalt as he dominates the stage in the World Television Premiere of “Patton Oswalt: My Weakness is Strong,” debuting on COMEDY CENTRAL Sunday, August 23 at 10:00 p.m.
Encore presentations of “Patton Oswalt: My Weakness Is Strong” are scheduled to air Sunday, August 23 at 12:30 a.m. and Tuesday, September 1 at 7:00 p.m.
From his small-screen performance in the hit series “King of Queens” to voicing “Ratatouille” and his starring role in the upcoming film “Big Fan,” Oswalt is a Jack-of-all-trades. In his all-new, one-hour stand-up special, Oswalt spins drab topics like depression and weight into laugh-out-loud anecdotes, explaining why he can’t be around Lucky Charms and LSD at the same time and making a cogent case for why flying in a plane is like peeing in God’s face. Get ready for a workout of intense laughs in the new World Premiere special from one of America’s biggest comedy stars!
