Patton Oswalt vs. Philly Boy Roy

Via Die, Actor, Die!, via Jesse Thorn of The Sound of Young America, via Henry of Chunklet Magazine (!):

Here's visual evidence of Patton Oswalt and Philly Boy Roy together on stage at the recent Comedians of Comedy show at the TLA. The squirrel joke is great, but some of the crowd turns on him with the Allen Iverson joke. How dare he make fun of a guy that used to play basketball for our basketball team!

Also from the Chunklet blog: an archive of Mitch Hedberg sets from 2001-2004! This is like a football nut having access to coaches' footage of all of the games. I haven't listened to these yet, but it will be interesting to go through them to see how his one-liners evolve. Analysis forthcoming...

I couldn't quite hear the Iverson punchline- can you let us non-iverson following people in on the joke?

To get the full effect, go to 1:28 in that video. This is a famous press conference where he just says "practice" many times.

So Roy's joke was "malpractice? We're talking about malpractice?". Kind of clever, but people saw it coming too.
