Here is what people are saying about Patrick.
"My wife brought Patrick in to roast me for my 50th birthday.
Patrick found out things from my past and told everyone we were friends, that we went to school together and had everyone believe it.
It was an amazing show. Patrick played his part perfectly. People were crying from laughing so hard. Excellent job Patrick.
If you want to roast someone, this is the guy you want, hands down! Thanx Patrick. -Brian Hughes,Fort Mcmurray
