Oswalt is now a single father raising his kids alone.

“I’m like every bad ’80s sitcom where there’s a dad raising a kid by himself… Except my ’80s sitcom sucks,” he explained. “There’s no punch lines. There’s a lot of insomnia, there’s a lot of me eating Cheetos for dinner. I’m waiting for my daughter to turn to the camera and go: No wonder I’m in therapy.”

Poor Oswalt. You can tell he’s heartbroken, but doing the best he can. Check out the full interview above.
