You can take the boy out of the island, but you can’t take the island out of the boy. You’ve probably heard that one before, but it’s true when you’re talking about Patrick. Born and raised in PEI, the ways of the Island informs everything that he does. His experiences growing up on the Island and the challenges of staying true to his roots after spending time away provide fodder for his material. As does his short teaching career, during which he put his degrees in literature and technology to use at Georgia Tech New Media Education Center. There he delivered practical training sessions for corporate clients.

No stranger to long presentations and unusual email threads himself, Patrick can sympathize with those attempting communication in a corporate setting. It’s not just empathy that he shares. Patrick creates a highly personalized performance for every one of his clients by listening to your needs and wants.

Known to be quick and witty, Patrick delivers on smart comedy that has a firm foundation in storytelling that’s sure to impress a corporate crowd. His colourful and energetic show has been described as, “If Stephen Leacock and Woody Allen had a baby”. During his shows he considers the changing trends in technology, careers, and relationships. Past clients have raved about his performances, with many of them saying he was the crowd favourite and best entertainer in years. The only complaint you’ll read about is how everyone left the show with their cheeks and stomachs in pain from laughing so much.

When he’s not leaving corporate crowds in stitches, Patrick is busy as a writer, actor, and radio-personality. He’s received national recognition from his work with CBC Radio’s “The Debaters”, which is how Steve Patterson has come to call him “one of the funniest people in Canada”.
