Grant Walters Grant Walters Interview: Patton Oswalt

The acclaimed comedian and actor brings a new hour to the Ohio Theatre on Sunday night

My wife, Julie, and I sat in the audience at the Palace Theatre during Patton Oswalt’s last show in Columbus in 2017 — a set that echoed much of what would be seen in his then-forthcoming Netflix special, Annihilation.  While his astutely acidic take on his surroundings has never failed to make me laugh, he displayed […]

Comedy Q&A with Claudia Oshry, “Girl With No Job”

Grant Walters Grant Walters Comedy Q&A with Claudia Oshry, “Girl With No Job”

The Instagram star brings her virtual comedy to the live stage at the Columbus Funny Bone on Thursday

I gleefully post clichéd pictures of plane wing sunsets and our dogs on a whim, ineffectively hashtagged and heavily Insta-filtered with vivid shades of ‘Juno’ (sometimes Hefe, if I’m feeling fancy). My ‘like’ hearts pop up in single digits, and I’m relentlessly followed by overseas […]
