As a standup comedian, O’Sullivan has headlined clubs in Seattle, San Francisco, Calgary, San Diego and Sacramento. He produced a documentary on Lenny Bruce (“Looking for Lenny”) which was ranked by IFC as #1 on their “10 Great Documentaries about Comedians” list. Patrick has also been a part of some of L.A.’s most unique stage productions; playing Gary Busey in “Point Break Live!” and creating the hit impersonator stage shows “All About (Christopher) Walken” and “All About Jack (Nicholson)”. His one man show “Young Sully: Stories from an Irish American Youth” started in L.A. and was later chosen as S.F. Chronicle Pick of the Week and for the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin.
