American comedian Patrick Melton (Comedy Central, VH1, Spike) makes his Edinburgh Fringe debut with My Least Favorite Everything, a feverish deconstruction of his ongoing frustrations with life, love and losing out. Performances run 3rd to 29th August at Underbelly Med Quad (Clover).
My Least Favorite Everything combines moments of silliness with disgruntled punches of comedic truth, from examining what it’s like to lose 100lbs in nine months to condemning our unrealistic expectations in relationships. Insanely entertaining and engaging, Patrick weaves a collection of unlikely personal stories and commentaries on the absurd, delivered with a sharpened hint of spontaneity, biting wit and a charmingly wry personality that allows him to walk the fine line of acceptable offensiveness.
Over the course of his career, critics have called Patrick “damn funny,” “an amazingly eccentric observational writer” and “full of sarcastic wit” (Time Out Los Angeles). He has spent over a decade touring the United States, opening for acts such as Todd Glass, Doug Benson, Jamie Kennedy, Greg Giraldo, Marc Maron and more. In 2013, Patrick advanced past hundreds of comedians and was named a semi-finalist in Comedy Central’s Up-Next competition.
