Patton Oswalt talks Twitter, obsession, comedy critiques and more

Tampa Bay comedy fans have been waiting for years for a local performance by Patton Oswalt, who finally hits the Straz Center in Tampa on Saturday (click here for details).

Oswalt is not only beloved for his stand-up, but his acting, his geekiness and his status as a renowned Twitter commentator, especially on the subject of comedy.

But that, he said in a recent email interview, does not give everyone the right to critique issues related to his chosen profession.

"The people complaining about comedy aren't funny," Oswalt said in a recent email interview. "I'm happy to take criticism from other funny people, but not from the dull and exasperated."
