Patton Oswalt's new comedy special to premiere on Epix in January

Patton Oswalt’s new comedy special, Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time, is nigh. The special will premiere Friday, Jan. 17 on Epix, the subscription-only cable channel/VOD network that's also available online.  For those without a subscription or not technologically inclined, the special will make its basic cable premiere on Comedy Central sometime in April.

Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time was filmed at the Spreckels Theater in San Diego, under the direction by Bobcat Goldthwait. According to Epix, the new special finds Oswalt “tackling issues ranging from frozen food to the future of America,” all of which sound pretty par for the course from Oswalt (and yes, that’s a good thing).

Oswalt’s last two specials, 2009’s My Weakness Is Strong and 2011’s Finest Hour, were both nominated for Grammys in the Best Comedy Album category.
