Jason Patterson at the Comedy Stop

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

Jason Patterson absolutely sounds the part. He’s got a rich, deep voice that oozes confidence, and a perfectly measured delivery that gives him instant authority.

When it comes to material, however, this relative newcomer needs stronger, more distinctive punchlines, with too many gags that rely on ‘reveals’ that are either obvious or weak. His best line touches on racism at American immigration, but material about still living at home with his mother, or taking easy pot-shots at KFC advertising slogans, lack the power of his impressive stage presence.
