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. Patrick has appeared on national television numerous times including Comedy Central and ‘Que Loco’ on Galavision among others. He has been heard on the national syndicated radio show ‘The Bob and Tom Show’ and NPR. Patrick has toured/performed with such comedians as Dave Attell, Tommy Davidson, George Lopez and Paul Rodriguez. Besides headlining at the top comedy clubs throughout the United States, he has also performed for the U.S. troops overseas in Bahrain, Cuba (Guantanamo Bay), Djibouti, Dubai, Guam, Honduras, Iraq, Japan and Korea.
Patrick’s material includes the advantages and disadvantages of living in a world with limited vision and the challenges that arise from it. Patrick discusses the obstacles of relationships/ marriage and raising four children. Patrick addresses an assortment of other topics that are insightful and hilarious.
