Patrick Andonie is a 52 year old accountant from New Orleans, Louisiana who had wanted to take a shot at stand-up comedy for years but could never seem to muster the courage.

You might want to check out Killer Stand-up comedian Wendy Bax.

Wendy is a 42 year old stay-at-home mom based in Portland, Oregon who had been told for years that she should take a shot at stand-up comedy.
