Comedians have long been said to be the social commentators of our time, and Patton Oswalt is clearly our Socrates. People gather from far around to hear him speak, and when he does, it is recorded and broadcast to the masses, who in turn spend their hard earned money just to hear what he has to say. So it’s no wonder that TED Talks asked him to record a talk for them. This video is simply the trailer. Who knows what he could say on the full thing?
It’s been made in conjunction with the good people at Team Coco, and is clearly not a real TED Talk, but then again they don’t know what they’re missing.
