BIO: Patricia Morrison is a Vancouver, BC based Comedian, Writer, Comedy Coach, Yoga Teacher and vintage video game collector/seller. Her edgy style is known for being self deprecating, witty and satirical humor. Patricia lets it all hang out and tells it like it is while embracing and joking openly about her traumatic past and present. Diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Agoraphobia, Panic/Anxiety Disorder and Suicide Ideation, performing stand up comedy has become her medicine, as laughter is healing, inexpensive and has no side effects. Entertaining the masses, by sharing her adventures into lunacy and self destruction, is what keeps her tethered to this world. Always an unconventional Occupational Connoisseur, this former Stripper turned non-practicing Bulimic, was born and raised in Toronto, ON. She has been writing, performing and producing stand up comedy for over four years and has an “award winning” Comedy/Cartoon Blog named The Writing Womb. She performs several times a week at most open mics around the city. In addition to performing regularly at Yuk Yuks Comedy Club and Lafflines Comedy Club, Patricia leads a weekly joke workout room specifically for comedians as well as being a stand-up comedy writing teacher/coach at local community centres. She will be hosting upcoming poetry slam and story slam events in Burnaby. If your life is difficult or boring and needs to be injected with some laughter, you may want to briefly enter the twisted, comedic mind of Patricia Morrison.
