Fresh off a smash-hit tour in 2019, Jamie Patterson was due to debut his first solo hour 'Awokening' at The Melbourne International Comedy Fest until it was cancelled due to Covid. A rising star in the New Zealand comedy circuit, 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 breaking down cultural norms in an unique and interesting way, whilst analysing his own place in the world through his trademark surreal observations, often pushing ideas long beyond their logical extreme with sidesplitting effect.
Described as one of the best comedic writers to appear on the circuit in recent years, Jamie honed his craft working as a writer in the advertising industry 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.
