Watch Patton Oswalt Do Standup in a 1990 Educational Video About Student Loans


In 1990, a 21-year-old Patton Oswalt appeared – among several other comedians – in this educational video that features a bunch of standups talking about student loans. The video was uploaded to YouTube over the weekend by ex-comedian JC Shakespeare, who also appears in it, and Patton Oswalt confirmed that this was him by tweeting about it. Oswalt posted a link to the video and wrote, “First paid acting gig. 19 years old. $300. Educational video about student loans. Sweater vest. Kill me.” If you want to skip all the other garbage surrounding it, Patton Oswalt’s bits begin at 32 seconds in and 5:38 in.
