Hi Cringe Humour. This is Patton Oswalt, and I wanted to say sorry that I couldn’t be there for the awards ceremony tonight, but I had to let you guys know , how flattering it is, truly flattering, that you chose my album, Werewolves and Lollipops, as best comedy album of the year, especially, you know you’re a New York based website, the New York comedy scene is really strong and amazing, so it’s just that much more special to me -- that you chose me, an LA based comic. It really means a lot. And it really blew me away when you guys let me know.
I don’t mind admitting to you guys that this was, this was kinda a rough year, for a lot of reasons that I won’t go into, but I had pretty much given up doing standup, for the last few months, and this award really reminded me that I think, that standup is what I should be doing, and it really gave me the confidence back.
Sp tonight you’re seeing -- just before --- I do my last ever last ever silver boy fantasy dance routine for visiting Saudi Arabian businessmen here in Los Angeles.
[off camera] Hey Flabby, start your dance now!
Right so I gotta ... um [picks up drink] You know what, I don’t need this tonight. Thanks Cringe Humour.
[under breath] Alright Ahmed.
