From the mean streets of Atlanta to comedy stages around the world ... Ms. Pat has amazing stories to tell and a gift for making those stories hilarious. She was dealing drugs and had two children before she was 16. She spent her 20s raising six kids (including four of her sister’s) and scraping to get by. But those experiences became the foundation for her honest and fantastic stand-up. Since taking to the stage in 2003, she has never slowed down.
