Patton Oswalt Takes on Jay Leno

This is from the podcast Comedy Death ray hosted by Scott Aukerman and B.J. Porter. They interview Patton Oswalt to get his take on Jay Leno’s shuffle kerfuffle.

Oswalt gives a nice shout out to Rick Perlstein for his delicious book Nixonland, says Leno parallels Nixon and then talks about other stuff. You know who’s really like Nixon? Not Leno. First off, Nixon stepped down…

Anyway, that’s going to be weird the next time Oswalt is on Leno’s show, huh?
