Equally hilarious whether he's riffing on comic book supervillains or American excess, Patton Oswalt has become one of the premier stand-up comedians today. Best known for his role on TV's The King of Queens and for voicing Remy in the animated film Ratatouille, Oswalt also has a recurring role on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and gave an acclaimed performance in the Sundance film Big Fan. While the world knows him as a comedian and actor, his latest book Silver Screen Fiend outs him as a major film buff. Watch as he discusses his cinephile side with Chicago Humanities Festival Artistic Director Alison Cuddy. Hear his takes on classic Hollywood films to recent releases and how they've shaped his acting, writing, relationships and comedy.
