About Me

In July 2007, Pat was entered into a local comedy contest without his knowledge. Seriously.

When the host called Pat’s name, his buddy said, “you can do this,” and that started a decade of Pat chasing the dream of making people laugh for a living. Pat’s act mixes high energy, in your face storytelling with quick and original observational crowd work. No two of Pat’s performances are alike because no two audiences are alike.

Pat’s brutal honesty and unique outlook on life has entertained audiences all over New England. Pat has performed in theaters in front of 1,400 people and bars in front of 4 people. And he takes no prisoners in either setting.

Pat has been on TLC and the E! Network, been a guest on the popular comedy podcasts Legion of Skanks and Robert Kelly’s YKWD. He hosts his own podcast Pat Oates is Sad on iTunes and Stitcher.

Pat is also a regular on both the Chaz & AJ morning show in CT and the Bax & O’Brien morning show in Massachusetts. He is also a contributing writer on LaughStaff. Pat just loves to make people laugh. He doesn’t really like people, but he’s likes them when they are laughing.
