Its dark and I’m on a plane.
Its dark and I’m on a plane. Somewhere over a very big lake in Canada. Everyone around me is in the land of nod. But Brain Farts never sleep.
Welcome to my new website. I’m tapping this out very slowly thanks to Japanese whiskey. Or maybe that’s whisky? I’m not sure if they go with the ‘e’ or not and there’s no way to check up here.
But believe me, it’s great gear. Or at least it was last night.
Lifestyle tip – don’t drink lots of Japanese whisky at a friend’s wedding and then try to slice a loaf of bread for a late night snack when you get back in. A digit may just get in the way and you could end up with a pool of blood on the kitchen floor, half a nail in your sandwich and an oversized bandage on the one finger that no one really wants to to ask about.
However, on the flip side, I can now honestly say that there’s been blood, sweat and tears to bring you this new site. Along with some snot and a tiny bit of pee. I hope you like it.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be making a TV show about a Belfast man who helped build Los Angeles – stay tuned for Stetsons and stopcocks.
I’ll be playing records and talking shite on the wireless (as Sir Terry Wogan once politely told me) And I’ll be asking for your ‘Help’ at my live gigs up and down the country.
I’ll also be posting some snaps on my new Instagram account, tweeting more than once a month (no, really) and brain farting live on Periscope. I’d love you to join me – especially at the gigs.
Meantime, big thanks for checking out the site and for not laughing (too hard) at my blue steel. Ahem.
Oh and thanks to my wife for not letting me bleed to death last night… though at one point she did give it serious consideration.
All the Georgie,
P.S. Just realised – the only time there should be an ‘e’ in whisky is in Ibiza.
Born in Dundrum, N. Ireland, Patrick began stand up whilst studying psychology at Queen's University Belfast. He quickly made a name for himself as the host of Northern Ireland’s first comedy club “The Empire Laughs Back”.
His fearless satirical routines, in which he regularly attacked both Republican and Loyalist paramilitaries drew praise from both critics and those on the streets of pre ceasefire Belfast, not least because he had himself lost his father to UFF gunmen in 1988 aged 16.
The BBC were quick to pick up on his ability to both provoke and charm in equal measure and his big break came in 1995 on Comic Relief’s Saint Patrick’s Day Special along side Ben Elton, Jo Brand and Sir Lenny Henry.
His first two stand up titles went triple platinum and the award winning series “PK Tonight” for the BBC quickly followed.VIEW MORE
