Coming off sold-out runs at both the 2018 AND 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as the 2019 Perth Fringe World festival, American comedian Patrick Melton (Comedy Central, VH1, Spike) returns to Perth with Bumble Me Tinders, an interactive and ever-evolving circus of debauchery in which comedians share stories, lead audience games, provide good and bad dating advice, and much more. Never the same show twice, Bumble Me Tinders offers hilarity and surprises for audiences of all backgrounds – singles, couples, young, old, kinky, prude, polite or rude.
Bumble Me Tinders combines moments of silliness with disgruntled punches of comedic truth, from both on stage and off. Audience members join comedians in sharing horrifying experiences in dating, sex and relationships. Insanely entertaining and engaging, host Patrick Melton weaves a collection of unlikely personal stories and commentaries on the absurd, delivered with a sharpened hint of spontaneity, biting wit and a charmingly wry personality that allows him to walk the fine line of acceptable offensiveness.
Over the course of his career, critics have called Patrick “damn funny,” “an amazingly eccentric observational writer” and “full of sarcastic wit” (Time Out Los Angeles). He has spent over a decade touring the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa, opening for acts such as Todd Glass, Doug Benson, Jamie Kennedy, Greg Giraldo, Marc Maron and more. In 2013, Patrick advanced past hundreds of comedians and was named a semi-finalist in Comedy Central’s Up-Next competition.
His award-winning podcast/internet radio show, Nobody Likes Onions, now in its 16th year, is one of the longest-running internet comedy shows ever and has played host to many comic legends, entertaining tens of thousands of listeners worldwide.
