McNamara died in her sleep in the family's Los Angeles home on April 21, 2016. Her death was attributed to a combination of a previously undiagnosed heart condition and complications from ingested medications, including Adderall, Xanax, and Fentanyl.[47] The season-three finale of The Goldbergs was dedicated to her memory.

On August 1, 2016, Oswalt announced that he had been working to complete McNamara's unfinished nonfiction book about the Golden State Killer.[48] In September 2017, Oswalt announced that the book, titled I'll Be Gone in the Dark, was scheduled for release on February 27, 2018, and was subsequently available for preorders.[49] Less than two months after the book's release, on April 25, 2018, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department announced they had made an arrest in the Golden State Killer case. Oswalt posted a brief video to Instagram, saying: "I think you got him, Michelle."[50] He also posted on Twitter that same day, saying that he hoped to visit the suspect if he was indeed the Golden State Killer, "not to gloat or gawk - to ask him the questions that [McNamara] wanted answered in her 'Letter to an Old Man'" at the end of her book.[51]

Oswalt is a longtime comic book fan, particularly a DC Comics fan, which he has discussed in his stand-up. He has written a few issues for comics.[52] He is also a cinephile, having watched 4,000 films, including 720 films from 1995 to 1999 at the New Beverly Cinema.[53][54]

In July 2017, he and actress Meredith Salenger confirmed their engagement.[56] They were married in November 2017.[57][58]

In 2013, he teamed up with PETA, spoke out against chaining pet dogs, and sent a letter to the mayor and members of the city council of Newport News, Virginia, urging them to ban the practice.[59]

Oswalt is an outspoken atheist[60] and has referred to his atheism in his comedy specials: No Reason to Complain, Feelin' Kinda Patton, My Weakness Is Strong, and Finest Hour.

Oswalt's influences include Jonathan Winters, Richard Pryor,[61] Emo Philips, Blaine Capatch, Jim Goad,[62] Bill Hicks, Bobcat Goldthwait, Sam Kinison, Steve Martin,[63][64] and Louis C.K.[64]

Oswalt is a progressive and a supporter of the Democratic Party, having endorsed Barack Obama for re-election as president in 2012 and Joe Biden in 2020.[65] Oswalt was an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump. In January 2019, following an intense Twitter feud with a Trump supporter, he donated $2,000 to the man's GoFundMe fund created to help cover his medical expenses.[66][67][68]
