Pat Susmilch with Laura Thorne
Born on the mean streets of White Bear Lake Minnesota, Patrick Susmilch's comedy comes from a very real place. When not arguing with his pet cockatiel he can be seen performing all across the Midwest. From a recent interview with the City Pages:
"When you read memoirs about comedians, there really isn't ever that defining moment where they say to themselves, 'Next stop, Hollywood,'" he says. "For me, as long as I never have to get a real job again I'll be happy."

Laura Thorne began working as a comic in 2007 at the suggestion of her former boss, who upon firing her, recommended she pursue standup comedy as it seemed a better fit than the corporate world. Devastated, broke, and deeply humbled, Laura began performing standup comedy in Washington, DC and throughout the East Coast. Laura now lives in Minneapolis where she regularly performs standup and improvisational comedy for corporate events, charities, and comedy clubs. She has been featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Rochester Post-Bullentin. No longer devastated or broke (but still humble- her mother is her manager), Laura is a rising star on the Minneapolis comedy scene.
