Patrick Draper

Patrick Draper appearing at this event

Since starting in stand-up in October 2011, Patrick has successfully driven to over 200 stand-up gigs and delivered a selection of deadpan jokes and stories to a range of different audiences: big, small, enthusiastic, indifferent, confused. 'He has won our gong shows 5 times. Very well written material with killer punchlines!' (Spiky Mike, Funhouse Comedy Clubs) 'An extremely unique brand of comedy. Patrick has nailed his persona and material from the off and has blown away every audience he has performed at for us, from our gong show to our two professional nights. His act can only be described as filthy but genius' (Roger Swift, Teknicolour Smoof) 'A compelling stage presence ushering forth gently acidic one-liners with many an unexpected twist. In short, a most amusing cove!' (Anthony J Brown, Stagefright Comedy) 'Give him a gig. Solidly funny over 20 minutes with several bits you'll want to tell your mates as if you wrote it!' (Paul Savage) 'Patrick Draper is extremely funny, he is intelligent, his persona is grim, and yet warm. I've seen audiences physically lean forward in anticipation of what he is going to say next, then to be followed by an explosion of communal laughter. He has become a favorite in the Midlands, and I love it when he is on the bill!' (David Rees Jones, Promoter).
