Patti Savard

Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, and having to live as male most of her life, has given her an interesting perspective on social behavior. Ready or not, she will tell you what she has learned with her passionate expression and animated delivery. Patti was featured on Mark Breslin’s “New Years Eve Comedy Extravaganza” at Massey Hall in Toronto.
At home, on the Vancouver Island, in her small community of Comox, she is growing her local comedy scene with regular occuring showcases and open mics, which can be followed @ComoxValleyComedy on Facebook.
