Jamie Patterson Awokening (NZ)

Fresh off a solo tour of New Zealand, Jamie Patterson debuts his solo hour at Melbourne International Comedy Festival. A rising star across the ditch, pro comedian at Auckland’s The Classic and Grand Finalist in the New Zealand Raw Comedy Quest, Jamie Patterson is one of the most exciting new comics to emerge from the New Zealand comedy scene. Mixing absurd observations and killer punchlines, Jamie revels in saying the unsayable whilst expertly controlling the room.

Awokening is Jamie's debut solo hour, breaking down cultural norms in a unique and interesting way whilst analysing his own place in the world through his trademark surreal observations. Raised by Italian Catholic parents and the strict educators of an all-boys high school, Jamie ponders how his laddish upbringing differs from the liberal, professional artist he’s become, often pushing ideas long beyond their logical extreme with side splitting effect.

Described as one of the best comedic writers to appear on the circuit in recent years, Jamie honed his craft working as a professional writer before bursting onto the stage armed with more punchlines than the drinks table at a high school disco. Not to be missed at this Festival, catch him now while you still can.
