Where: The High Watt
When: 8:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27
Over the past year-and-a-half, The High Watt and Corporate Juggernaut have specialized in booking comedians on the rise whose temperament lies somewhere between “stoned genius” and “complete maniac.” Comics like Rory Scovel, Ryan Singer and Jarrod Harris have pushed the boundaries of stand-up comedy to the point that it was hard to tell what exactly we were laughing at.
Sean Patton, who was booked at the Watt in September but dropped off due to work commitments, is firmly within that wheelhouse. Patton’s style of comedy is both physical and madcap, taking a premise beyond its logical conclusion into gleeful mayhem. Patton is one of the most expressive, energetic comedians working today, which give his jokes and stories a freewheeling, unhinged quality that must be seen to be appreciated in full.
