The veteran’s latest offering, filmed at the Spreckles Theater in San Diego, will also make its basic cable premiere on Comedy Central in April. Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, the new special finds Oswalt “tackling issues ranging from frozen food to the future of America,” according to a statement from Epix.

The album versions of Oswalt’s last two specials – Finest Hour (2011) and My Weakness is Strong (2009) – were nominated for Grammys in the best comedy album category. Before the special premieres on Epix, you’ll be able to see Oswalt in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty starring  Ben Stiller. It opens in theaters on Dec. 25. Oswalt is also the narrator on The Goldbergs, the new 1980s-set comedy series on ABC.
