* ViewersAreGeniuses: Lampshaded heavily. Will often make an obscure reference in his act, then start topping himself, ie, making references to Creator/HPLovecraft and Music/ThisMortalCoil, then end up talking about Frank Belknap Long. He lampshades the trope on one album, laughing about how he's expecting the audience to know such obscure references. He makes another obscure reference and [[IsThisThingOn pretends to bomb]].

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: One segment of "My Weakness Is Strong" has him talk about people who are "b-word" fat, meaning you can just hear it in their voice, then goes into such a sentence.

Added DiffLines:

* TranquilFury: His description of a comedy-magician when he was just starting out, when they'd both been shorted $5 - Oswalt had to accept it, but the magician was ''not'' pleased.
-->'''Patton''': But he doesn't scream and yell, he does that thing where you get so god damned angry you begin speaking very quietly, but you [[PunctuatedForEmphasis over-enunciate every fucking word that comes out of your mouth]]...

* NostalgiaFilter: Mocks this when discussing how his Whole Foods friends kept telling him to have a home birth because "that's how the pioneers did it". He says that it wasn't that great back then, and if they're going to say that, they might as well go all the way and have the baby outside, with their 9 other children, 5 of which will die of the rickets.

He says that it wasn't that great back then, and if they're going to say that, they might as well go all the way and have the baby outside, with their outside in a "birthing trench" during a hailstorm, and to make sure to have at least 9 other children, since 5 of which them will die of the rickets.

* NoExceptYes: In ''Talking for Clapping'', he describes how his daughter is getting into ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' the same way that he got into ''Franchise/StarWars'', describing it as "her own thing" that he simply doesn't have time to watch or absorb since he's older. Patton then spends a good two minutes describing the premise of the show.

* EverythingIsRacist: Discussed in his Netflix special ''Talking for Clapping'' in which he recounts a story about his formerly closeted friend, who finally came out after years of internalized homophobia and self-loathing due to attending a very anti-gay high school. As a result, he was very [[PapaWolf overly protective]] of his openly gay nephew, who was attending the same school. When he asked the nephew if the school was still as oppressive as he remembered it, the nephew's eyes filled up with tears and said that it was: "My LGBT group was trying to book the gay prom the same night at the straight prom, and we just found out that it's being pushed to two weeks later, and it just feels really oppressive, y'know?"
