Another day, another hour of conversation. This time it was decidedly more light-hearted than these past few days have been.
Now that the dust has (mostly) settled and things are back in order again, we take an unfond look back at the last week. Spoiler alert: a lot of people were assholes about it.
A couple of Tom’s friends from the recovery center stop by, along with Ron who yells a lot.
Brash, opinionated and consistently outspoken, the irascible Ron Rosenbaum is an authentic Twin Cities character. Rosenbaum is (in no particular order) a lover of gambling, cigars, and — most of all — calling it as he sees it. His political beliefs may best be described as iconoclastic. In other words, he’s not drinking anybody’s Kool-aid. He brings to Twin Cities News Talk years of experience working in talk radio and television. Years ago when he was — as he puts it — “young and stupid,” he was recruited to help tame racially torn South Boston High School. He’s also been a Boston Globe correspondent and a practicing attorney, a Minnesota Law & Politics “Super Lawyer” for years. If you’re looking around town for him, your best bet is on the golf course, in the bar at The Lex or at Canterbury Park.
Tom develops a strange obsession with Ms. Pat’s breast (yes, singular) for the majority of this episode.
Let’s start with Ms. Pat hasn’t lived the life of your typical comedian. Born to a single mother of 5, living on welfare in a tough West end neighborhood of Atlanta, Ms. Pat learned early on she would have to fend for herself in this world. Her Grandfather ran a “bootleg” house where as a kid Pat learned how to roll the drunks for food money. She had her first child at 14 and her second child at 15, “I knew I wasn’t going to college so I figured why not get an early start on my family”. She became a drug dealer in her teens known by the street name “Rabbit”. In 2003 with her case-worker’s encouragement she decided to go on–stage and appeared at the Open-Mic-Night at “The Pub” in Atlanta. From the moment she stepped on stage she knew she had found her place. She began pouring punch lines across stages at the rate other moms pour milk at the counter. With a comedy career now spilling over 9 years this powerful woman brings a hardcore, in your face, honest and hilarious perspective to her shows. In 2009 she began touring as the opening act for national headliner Arnez J. In July of this year she made her first TV appearance on the TV Guide Network’s “Standup in Stilettos”. She will also be appearing on Nickelodeons “Mom’s Night Out” comedy special in October. She is a regular guest on the Bob and Tom Radio Show. Currently she appears on Katt Williams new DVD release “Kattpacalypse”. Ms. Pat currently resides with her husband and three children in Indianapolis.
