What happens when the universe randomly drops a piano on the best standup comic you can name? How will this change his act? He's either going to have to make a decision to talk about it, or make a decision not to talk about it.
There;s something about the way he talks about his family that made this really shocking. He almost never talks about them directly, but he often talks about the crazy places love will take you. My favorite part from his recent Netflix special is when he tells everything he knows about My Little Pony, because that's what his daughter is into.
AGAIN, the CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTERS video that's about to drop off the edge of the hopper was horribly labelled by whoever submitted it. It contains Patton Oswalt doing a parody of Orson Welles in F for Fake, possibly the most obscure movie reference ever. It's not that funny, it's just awesome.
He doesn't actually know that much about My Little Pony. He's picked up a few things, which is cool and all, but his knowledge is muddled and spotty.
More to the point and your question, Mr Holmes: perhaps Patton could do some standup about Apple Bloom now?
Please take note that when Oswalt poked a bit of fun at the gross, manbaby shithead known as Angry Video Game Nerd the first thing AVGN did was make a series of crass, heartless, shitty, unfunny tweets about Oswalt's dead wife.
It's kind of dispiriting that Patton Oswalt even knows who AVGN is.
Stanley, it was him, or just his fans?
Everything about your comment is so incorrect that Fox News viewers can look down on you.
AVGN's response has been radio silence as far as I can tell. There was some real nasty shit posted on twitter by nobodies though.
Please link to a single one of these tweets from the AVGN.
Sorry but the tweet where someone photoshopped his wife's head onto Slimer on the new Ghostbusters poster and said "looks like they're using real ghosts!" was fucking hilarious.

To be fair, there were Ghostbustergaters pleading for Patton to be left alone, because he's been going through a hard time.
If you've listened to enough of Patton's albums, you can follow the course of his relationship, from getting to know Michelle to his fears about marriage to his plans to not have kids to his finally having one and delighting in his family ... and then this.
I know there's always this illusion with celebrities that we know them personally -- our ape-brains aren't built to handle recent social constructs like celebrities -- but in the case of Patton Oswalt, he's been open enough about so much of it, I can't help but feel this tragedy particularly keenly.
His seven-year-old daughter said a few days after her mom's passing: "When your mom dies you're the best memory of her. Everything you do is a memory of her."

This happened recently.
Come on, this is what the unwashed masses do. You remember how crass they were when Margaret Thatcher died.
This is the shit that makes it so there's no middle ground in these stupid internet wars.

Now I feel bad for not liking his stand-up. Much sympathy.

Don't worry, folks. We may have lost a brilliant warm caring wife and mother, but Dick Cheney is still alive.
