Sick Puppies Comedy Presents: A Tale of Two Patricks
A Tale of Two Patricks will give you every opportunity to enjoy an original spontaneous show guided by your input and your resulting laughter.

Audience input will be requested, and where the laughs lead, the troupe will follow.

There is even going to be boy-versus-girl arm wrestling with prizes. -- Tana Velen
