Patti Vasquez, a Chicago native, got her start over a decade ago after leaving graduate school at Northwestern University to work as an emcee at Zanies Comedy Club in 1995. While she disappointed her parents by never completing her Ph.D in history, she has gone on to star in two hit one-woman shows- “Pregnant Party Girl: From Stoli’s to Stirrups” and “Mamacita: Tales of a Diaper Diva” written by Patti and performed for theater audiences throughout the United States.
Patti’s unique perspective on family and relationships has been described as “Comedy with a Heart.” Her stories about growing up in a multi ethnic American family cause laughter at the unique but all too familiar situations. Patti also exposes the truths about pregnancy and shares the comic moments of giving birth and raising children. She is not afraid to mock, poke fun and examine all the myths, half truths and innuendo most people shy away from. Patti brings everyday events to life in each performance and has become one of the hardest working women in comedy today.
