Oswalt doesn’t seem concerned with coming up with the killer bit in his new Netflix special -- and that's okay. Oswalt, says Tim Grierson, "was 50 when he filmed his most recent stand-up special, I Love Everything, and if you’re seeking a role model for how to navigate through your awkward, defensive young fandom to become a wiser, contented middle-aged dude, he’s as good as any you could hope to find. Oswalt’s comedy has often leaned on his obsession with pop culture, the more obscure the better — I Love Everything sneaks in non sequitur references to Avalon and Faces of Death, just because — but his voracious consumption of comic books, albums, movies, TV shows and comedy is always endearing rather than nauseating. On stage, his dorkiness is self-deprecating, a product of coming of age at a time when fandom didn’t rule the entertainment industry. Back then, you felt a little embarrassed about the geeky stuff you adored."
