Description

Patrick has many dead friends, which is a huge bummer. But those friends were fun when they were alive, and thanks to the Internet, every message those dead friends ever sent is still accessible! This Fringe debut from Last Comic Standing alum Patrick Susmilch is wry, poignant, and as close as you'll get to communicating with the dead. 'Patrick's show is a rollercoaster of terrible loss alongside big laughs... fast-moving, thoughtful, and I – a hardened comedian – was moved to tears. A work of art.' (Maria Bamford of Netflix's Lady Dynamite).

Funny, heartfelt and utterly cathartic. Delivered beautifully with the perfect balance of comedy, compassion and honesty. I could have listened to Patrick for another hour or more. This is a brilliant piece of comedic art.

I see Patrick Susmilch's Texts From My Dad Friends as a show about love. A beautiful and heartbreaking story of continued loss and grief, told through 469 (nice) slides and a countless more jokes. We all should be so lucky to have a friend who cares about us the way Patrick Susmilch obviously cares about the people in his life, and those who are no longer. This has been my absolute favorite show of the Fringe. Watch it, and then text all your friends that you love them.

This show is in the true spirit of the Fringe. Funny and raw, it has much to say about mental health whilst working in the arts, and it will stay with me for a long time. The Fringe is all about taking risks and seeing shows that not only make you cackle with laughter but also change how you view things and this one did. Definitely a Fringe highlight for both me and my friend. Thanks for performing this Patrick.
