U.S. comedian Sean Patton will be performing this weekend at expat comedy shows in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, and Busan.

Patton, who has made various TV appearances in the U.S. and released his first comedy album, “Standard Operating Procedure,” in 2012, combines observational humor and storytelling with a touch of the absurd.

Patton came to Korea after sharing a bill with former Stand Up Seoul performer Adam Palmeter.

“I’ve heard so many great things about South Korea that when the opportunity to perform there popped up, I just had to accept,” said Patton.

“I share a lot of personal experiences and stories onstage, I think people can relate to these and celebrate the beauty of human flaw with me,” he added.

There will be two shows at O’ Lounge Comedy Club in Pyeongtaek on Friday and Saturday. With Patton headlining, the shows will also feature expat comedian Rob Fioretta with support from Jack Flitton and Devin Snell.

Patton will also perform in Busan at HQ Bar next to Gwangalli Beach on Sunday. The show will be hosted by John Meyericks, with support from Kelvin Brassbridge II and Steven Edward Hampson.

The Busan show will open at 7:30 p.m. for an 8 p.m. start. Tickets are 10,000 won ($8.40).

The Pyeongtaek shows start at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are 15,000 won.
