Comedian Patton Oswalt always steals the attention wherever he goes. He is not only a great comedian but also has a lot of funny stories up his sleeves, which can crack you up, even if he is sitting locked down in his home. For instance, did you know he used to be a wedding DJ? Most importantly, he had deejayed with cassette tapes. You wonder how!

Oswalt was the guest of the evening on ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on Wednesday, May 20 edition of the late night show, where he revealed that in his younger days he used to be a wedding DJ. But that’s not what made the chat hilarious. Rather it was the fact that he used to DJ with cassette tapes long after they went out of use. He worked with the only company that used tapes in those days and managed to mix two-three tapes together. Kimmel joined in the fun revealing that in the late '80s, somewhere between 1987 and 1989, when he was in college, he also used to be a DJ at weddings, but definitely not like Oswalt. Kimmel’s deejaying work involved stacks of records that he would mix and play at the events.

Taking the fun chat further, Oswalt also spoke of the time when he was scared of his wife. It so happened that he and his wife, Meredith Salenger, had a fight and he went out to take the steam off. Later when he returned to his car, he found a note which scared him, making him think that he might get killed. To make matters worse for Oswalt, Meredith had filmed his reaction which they showed on the episode of the talk show. Later he also spoke about his new stand up special on Netflix called ‘I Love Everything’ which released on May 19, 2020. Patton Oswalt joined Kimmel on his show to join hands with many other celebrities and raise awareness and funds for Covid-19 charity to help the ones in crisis.
