Patton Oswalt on Jay Leno: ‘No more for you guys’

The great Patton Oswalt, who is the funniest guy in whatever room he happens to be in, analyzes the Leno/O’Brien flap from the perspective of a working comedian in this clip from Comedy Death-Ray. It shouldn’t be surprising that the man who once called KFC’s Famous Bowl entree a “failure pile in a sadness bowl” has the perfectly smart and sharp perspective on why Leno has been such a brutal disappointment in late-night. (NSFW, probably, if you work in a buttoned-up office.)

    I think Patton Oswalt is completely right on in this interview. Whatever happens, Conan will be fine. If anything, NBC is going to suffer from this type of shenanigans in the end.

    thanks for this!

    About Me

    I'm a writer in Santa Monica, CA. I spent some years at Newsweek and some more writing for TV. My freelance journalism has appeared in The New Yorker, Time, Slate, The Boston Globe, Fast Company, Fortune Small Business, Washington Journalism Review, American Journalism Review, American Heritage and TV Guide, and on PBS.

    I've been writing about popular culture for more than 20 years, and about technology for almost that long. I've been fascinated the last few years with the way the two have started to intertwine, so that's what I'll be looking at here: Technology, pop culture and the places where they meet. I'll also be poking around in the world of blogging, microblogging, nanoblogging, micronanoblogging and whatever comes next.

    You can reach me at billbarol.com.
