Patrick Keane headlines Comedy Night at the Ave on Friday.
The show begins at 7:30 p.m. at the historic theater, 10 Auburn Ave.
Originally from the Midwest, raised in Orange County, college in Montana and a three year stint in Asia make Keane a comedian with a background. Why college in Montana? Football scholarship. Why Asia? To get away from football.
Keane has appeared on “Comedy Central,” “the Late Late Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Tosh.0,” “The Bob and Tom show,” XM Radio, Spotify, “Comics Unleashed,” and the Montreal Comedy Festival.
Asked what the key is to comedy, this writer/comedian says, “I try not to be funny and it usually works.”
His album, (2 and 2 Be Fo’), is out now on iTunes, Amazon, Google and Spotify.
Keane can name all the U.S. Presidents in order and knows every Super Bowl matchup in history, which is a shame since he can’t even remember all the names of people in his family.
His dry sarcastic self-deprecating style originates from comedy influences Bill Murray, Gene Wilder and John Wooden.
In addition to doing comedy, Patrick also likes to do magic and sometimes he’s able to make comedy completely disappear from the room.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.
