A sober comedian discusses substance abuse,
addiction, and his recovery.
Saint Joseph’s University cannot give enough praise for Punch Line Drunk. Patrick does a great job balancing humor and personal narrative. His college experience sounds a lot like many students, high achieving in the classroom and co-curricular activities, but also engaging in high risk substance use. This made the space provided throughout the show for the audience to reflect on their own relationship with substance use all the more impactful. Punch Line Drunk was an effective, entertaining and unique addition to our prevention education curriculum. Attendees reported a high level of satisfaction and learning after the event. We will continue to explore opportunities to integrate Punch Line Drunk in future prevention efforts.

Patrick's performance did very well. I was extremely satisfied with his talk as it was a very fun way to educate our students on alcohol. Our Greek Organizations all have a mandatory education/training regarding alcohol and Patrick's performance gave them an opportunity to enjoy themselves while still receiving their required education/training. The part I liked most about his performance was how approachable Patrick was during the show. There was not anything that Patrick covered that I felt was distracting or inappropriate. I would say that I am very likely to recommend Patrick to other colleges and/or agencies for his Punchline Drunk Performance.
