After graduating from high school, Kermet moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. Seattle became home. In early 1989, Kermet did his first open mike night at the Comedy Underground in Seattle. Comedy was a fun hobby. In May of 1990, he quit his job, said good bye to health care and benefits, and took the leap to performing full time. It is still his only job skill.

He was the winner of the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival and has had numerous appearances on television and radio. He has showcased at comedy festivals in Aspen, Las Vegas, and Vancouver and has performed in 47 states and 3 Canadian provinces. He is a past winner of the Seattle Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the San Francisco Comedy Competition. Also, in 1988 he was Dishwasher of the Month at the Sea-Tac Airport Denny’s.

Kermet is married and the proud father of two wonderful children. He enjoys his family, baseball, and pie. He does not enjoy opera, sitting in traffic, and writing about himself in the third person.

Headliner: Patrick Keane

Patrick can’t believe anyone would read this, but here we go:

Originally from the Midwest, raised in Orange County, college in Montana and a three year stint in Asia make Patrick Keane a comedian with a background. Why college in Montana? Football scholarship. Why Asia? To get away from football.

Patrick 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.

Patrick can name all the U.S. Presidents in order and knows every Super Bowl match up 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.

Like Tom Hagen, Patrick Keane is of German-Irish descent.

In addition to doing comedy, Patrick also likes to do magic and sometimes he's able to make comedy completely disappear from the room.
