This weekend at Comedy Heights at Bay Bridge Brewing and Twiggs we bring you Patrick Deguire.
Patrick Deguire started performing stand up after losing a significant amount of his vision because of an eye disease called optic neuritis and discovering laughter to be self therapeutic. Soon after getting started, Patrick won the Improv/ Harrahs National Comedy Club Talent Search.
