Widely known for his roles in the films Big Fan and Ratatouille (he was the voice of Remy!), as well as the television hits The King of Queens and United States of Tara, Oswalt, a Comedy Central staple, has been amusing audiences with his stand-up for decades. Now he offers a fascinating look into his most unusual, and loveable, mindscape with an uproariously funny memoir.
are the teen summers spent working in a run-down movie Cineplex, a passionate
