Patrick French

Patrick French has been performing as an actor and improviser throughout the Boston area since 2002. He was a member of the ImprovBoston Mainstage from 2007 – 2012, before stepping down so he had more time to change his kids' diapers. Prior to that, he performed with the Improv Asylum’s NXT cast. He has also performed in a number of ImprovBoston showcase shows over the years, including GoreFest, Crime Solving Bear & Oceans 2. He currently produces and performs in “The Angriest Show in the World,” a completely make-believe anger management seminar that inevitably spirals out of control. His awards include ImprovBoston's 2005 "Rookie of the Year," and Best Actor at Boston's 2010 48-Hour Film Festival. He has been known to get occasional commercial work - you may have seen him and heard his voiceover in numerous Papa Gino's pizza commercials, where he masterfully played the role of a hapless suburbanite whose grill has caught on fire.
