A great man once aptly renamed Kentucky Fried Chicken's "Famous Bowl" as "a failure pile in a sadness bowl" — and that man is Patton Oswalt. Yes, the same man who voiced that adorable Pixar rodent in Ratatouille and once claimed he wanted to "be a robot that helps wolves have sex" in regard to his Lexapro dosage.

It's been a fucking crazy shit-balls of a couple years for comedy's favorite nerdy atheist. After tragically losing his former wife and true crime writer Michelle McNamara — and releasing her unfinished novel, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, which may have helped lead to the capture of the "Golden State Killer" — Oswalt has since remarried and has been nominated via Twitter by writer Stephen King as a suitable replacement for Kevin Hart as host of this year's Academy Awards.

He's also testing out some new material with select tour dates, including some stage time at The Fillmore on May 18. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
