Your kids may know his voice from Pixar’s Ratatouille, but you may know him as the rich guy with the weird dead-wife fantasy in Dollhouse, or as Baxter Sarno on Caprica.

And you may even recognize him as (my personal favorite) the recurring D&D nerd from Reno 911.

Comedian/Actor/Writer Patton Oswalt is a very funny guy, and a bit of an influence in the geek community. His bold essay on Geek Culture in Wired a few months ago is still fiercely debated across the nerd-o-sphere.

Arizona is lucky enough to abduct Patton for an afternoon with his new and only book, Zombie Spaceship Wasteland.

I’m really hoping I can make to this, as I’d personally love to meet Mr Oswalt.

Afterwards, you can catch Patton’s stand up routine at the Mesa Arts theater, at 7:30pm.
