one of the most painful, emotional and hilarious stand up comedy shows I've seen is the Netflix special annihilation by our guest pattern aswell. It's all about losing his wife Hardly what you'd expect from a comedy special. But see it and cry and laugh. Ah, lot, It will do you a world of good. So with no further ado, Patton Oswalt, Can we talk? You were brought up a military brat. Um, you Your dad was a career marine, And so you did some traveling and you were even named after General Patton, right? Yeah. Yeah, my dad was Ah, Marine Colonel, 20 year marines. Um, I was born in Norfolk, Virginia. Portsmouth, actually. And then we moved a little bit in my youth. But I remember this very clearly when we moved to Virginia when I was, like, five or six, my dad, because he remembered, I think he flashed on when he was growing up. His dad was also a fighter pilot, and they traveled constantly, like, I think my dad went to seven different high schools and lived in five different countries and just never really. And he goes, I never remember like having a base like a my home. I never had a hometown, and he wanted my brother and I to have the experience of, you know, having a base. So we he took a job in in D. C. Just, I think, some kind of thing where he didn't have toe. He stopped flying to a desk job so that he could just stay, and we could grow up in the same area. So I ended up, so my even though I wasn't born there, I consider Sterling Virginia to be my hometown. Because wherever you go through puberty, that's your hometown, right? Exactly. So you could not have ended up further away from the military than you have. Yeah. Did that start early? Were you kind of an anti establishment kid when you were growing up? I don't know if I was anti establishment. My parents were very, very normal. Kind of, uh, dull, but not in a bad way. Just dependable, solid suburban parents. And a lot of yeah, it's just very good. They're very cozy. And because I had that kind of, uh, dependable base, I guess I was able to kind of, you know, pursue the more creative, weird stuff, but I don't really think I don't know if I did it in a rebellious way. I did it more. In a curious way. Sometimes curiosity would lead to rebellions because there are people that aren't crazy about curious kids. Um, but I remember a lot of my friends had parents who were going through divorces or having affairs or smoking weed, and basically were, like, really embracing the swinging seventies. And, um, they kind of rebelled against that by becoming even mawr traditional kind of hide bound marriage, kids, white picket fence, that kind of thing because they didn't have disability because I had because I knew I had the stability. I was able to go out and be kind of a weirdo and a lot of moments who you would think had the more creative weirdo parents, uh, rebelled by ITT's not fun to be raised by interesting parents. It looks fun from the outside, but I think on the inside it's kind of scary. Yeah, yeah,
