Patrick DeGuire started his career in stand-up after losing a significant amount of his vision because of an eye disease called optic neuritis. Being diagnosed, Patrick discovered laughter as a means of self-therapy. His brand of comedy is both original as well as insightful. It is all about living in a world with considerable disability and combating the challenges that come along with this situation. Pat’s comedy is infused with reality, wherein he talks about his marriage, the difficulties of being a stay-at-home father and raising young children. He also raises social and ethnic issues, which are close to him as he is a Mexican, whose mother is a French Canadian. Patrick has toured with George Lopez, Paul Rodriguez and Tommy Davidson.
