Patton Oswalt Literally Brings Down House at LaughFest Show When Backdrop Collapses
Anything can happen at a live show, including pieces of the set falling apart– which is what happened at Pat Oswalt’s LaughFest performance on Friday night.
According to WZZM-13, the comedian got lots of laughs during his set at Fountain Street Church. Then, while closing his show, the stage backdrop collapsed. Luckily, Oswalt wasn’t hurt.
And his handling of the situation got him a much deserved standing ovation.
