When his wife, Michelle McNamara died in April 2016, stand-up comedian Patton Oswalt saw himself scattered into pieces. The loss was too deadly a blow for him to bear. But Oswalt knew he had to gather himself together. If not for him, but for the sake of his daughter, Alice. He had one of the most effective ways for healing the wounds: performing on the stage. The performance became his outlet to vent out his grief. It was the victory of comedy and a comedian over the unexpected turns of destiny and slow-killing grief.
Oswalt emerged as a popular name among the prominent stand-up comedians in the U.S. during the last decade. His shows became popular for sharp observations, acidic comparisons, absurd jokes, obscenity, and bizarre views on life. Over the years on stage, he has become a solid icon of the pop culture. When Oswalt is on stage, his viewers can expect anything from sex, politics, and the collective chaos of our society.
He spares nothing and enjoys a huge following across the U.S. After the darkest years of loss and grieving in his personal life, Oswalt’s career has taken a new turn with the Netflix special, ‘Annihilation.’ Moreover, on the personal side, he found love in and tied the knot with Meredith Salenger. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Patton Oswalt movie and TV show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question.

8. Schooled (TV Series, 2019 – Present)
ABC’s ‘Schooled’ is a spin-off of the 1990s ‘The Goldbergs.’ The new plot follows characters from the ‘The Goldbergs,’ the teachers from William Penn Academy. Popular character including Tim Meadows’ Principal Glascott, Bryan Callen’s Coach Mellor and AJ Michalka’s Lainey Lewis return for the new season, keeping all their eccentricities and crazy personal lives. Patton Oswalt narrates the show from adult Adam’s point of view. But, in an interview, Michalka claimed that she’ll be narrating ‘Schooled‘ just as Patton Oswalt narrates ‘The Goldbergs.’ Even though the show wasn’t a big hit, it earned consistent rating and solid spectatorship for ABC.
