Citing Florida’s Covid rules, Patton Oswalt cancels Clearwater show

September 9, 2021 - Comedian Patton Oswalt has cancelled his Dec. 30 appearance at Ruth Eckerd Hall. “This difficult decision was made due to the rising number of COVID cases,” he said in a video posted to social media. “Also because I have an ego, but my ego is not big enough to think that people should die to hear my stupid comedy.” In announcing the cancellation of this and three other Florida appearances, Oswalt told his Instagram followers that “every other venue on the tour – even the Texas ones – were cool about requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test. I’m really bummed about this.”
