Patrick and Matilda: Patrick Murray, Second City trained, is a world-class ventriloquist/ comedian/ comedy writer; and his Jamaican puppet partner Matilda is Jamaica’s Number One Comedienne. Jamaican Me Laugh – This laugh filled, multi-cultural show highlights the sexy, sassy, vibrant observations of this hip comedienne.
Experience: After teaching himself ventriloquism from Izzy Rizzy’s Home Study Course a $4 booklet from Izzy Rizzy’s House of Tricks and School of Ventriloquism on Chicago’s South Side, Patrick decided to stop throwing freight and start throwing voices. His newfound talents landed him in top nightclubs where he honed his craft and sense of humor. After a few successful years he decided to see the world and started tours that covered the entire US, Caribbean, South America, Australia, Europe and Asia.
Matilda was born into a talented family. Her father Winston is a world-class Limbo Dancer, who always taught her the importance of raising the bar. Her mother Camille is listed in The Guinness Book of Records as the world’s fastest basket weaver and hair braider. Brother Clive an airline pilot with Air Jamaica, although he was never able to overcome his fear of heights, he gets by pretending a DC 10 in nothing more than a Buick with wings.
Patrick’s greatest successes came after introducing Jamaican Comedy Diva, Matilda into his act. This character was developed at the encouragement of West Indian friends and co-workers who thought that Patrick’s talent for the West Indian accent and sense of humor warranted a character that highlighted the islands. She was an instant hit and a beloved character.
In 2002 Patrick married the love of his life Nicole. Although she did bring a little baggage into their marriage.. Luckily for Patrick the baggage contained Antonio the Latino Ant. Together Nicole and Antonio bring some more fun and surprises to the show. Residents of British Columbia, Canada the happy family spend their time on tour making people forget their troubles, at home in BC, or at their condo in Miami Beach, Florida.
