She has appeared in comedy festivals including HBOï¿½s Las Vegas Comedy Festival, the Chicago Comedy Festival and Marshallï¿½s Women in Comedy Festival in New York. As a regular guest on the wildly popular Bob and Tom radio show, Patti reaches audiences around the world. She is currently touring cities across the country with the Bob and Tom Comedy All Stars. Her unique perspective on family and relationships has been described as ”comedy with a heart”.
In her hometown of Chicago, Patti can be heard regularly with popular radio host Steve Cochran. Chicago based shows such as Fox “Good Day Chicago”, WGN’s Morning News and NBC Morning Show welcome Patti to promote upcoming performances. She has participated in fund-raising events for groups such as Gilda’s Club, Autism Speaks, Susan G. Komen, Almost Home Kids, Epilepsy Outreach and The Brain Research Foundation. Patti recently appeared on TBS’ brand new series “The Very Funny Show” taped during the “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival. She has co-written a sitcom pilot entitled “The New Normal” based on her life’s experiences in a multi-generational, multi-racial, underemployed, special needs family. Patti is currently busy writing her first book “ZIP IT!- Just Because You Can Talk Doesn't Mean You Should!”
“I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.
Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.
York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a compliment to all three master comics.
