They say that talk-show appearances don’t do as much as they used to for stand-up comics. However, the heat was on Sean Patton after a hilarious appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last winter. Patton gave viewers a hilarious snapshot of his full stage act, relating a story about a fight he almost got into. When the altercation broke out, Patton told the audience, his first reaction was to nearly faint. “Which is fine, because no one’s going to beat you up if you faint, believe me.” Drawing on his acting skills, he was able to avoid violence. “You’re fixing to die,” said his adversary, to which Patton responded, boisterously, “Hey, you don’t know me — I die everyday!” He isn’t so lucky in relationships. “If I had to choose between being eaten by a shark and having my heart broken again,” he says, “I’d choose being eaten by he shark because at least I’d know the shark wanted me.” Sean Patton performs at Go Bananas Thursday-Sunday.
