Patton Oswalt rants about Epix on Twitter
Patton Oswalt’s new comedy special, Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time, was slated to premiere on the Epix website Thursday. That didn’t end up happening, so Oswalt told Twitter how mad he was and what everyone missed.
According to Oswalt, Epix prevented the world from seeing his naked body (you can always just watch Young Adult if you want to see that though), an excerpt from a Judy Blume book (a staple for every great comedy special), and soap bubble sculptures. Within three minutes of posting “learn to run a f—— website,” Oswalt tweeted again, this time with a link to his comedy special on Epix. They learned to run a website after all! Read Oswalt’s tweets below to see his rage spiral unfold:
Update: We spoke to Nora Ryan, the chief of staff at Epix, who said that everything on their part went as planned and the special’s television premiere was slated for 10 p.m. EST on Friday, January 17, all along. The countdown clock Oswalt referenced in his tweets accurately counted down to the midnight premiere of the special online, as shown by Oswalt’s own final tweet last night.
