You'll probably recognize Patton Oswalt from his numerous appearances on TV shows from Veep to Parks and Recreation, or from his six comedy specials (the latest of which is titled Talking for Clapping). He's a talented comedian and very active Twitter user (of the sane, liberal variety), and appears in the upcoming screen adaptation of Dave Eggers's tech dystopia novel The Circle. Unfortunately, his name has been in the news frequently in the past year because last April his wife died unexpectedly in her sleep—but in response, he has publicly offered careful, thoughtful, sincere statements about grief and loss.
