Hemingway In a Funny Way at Comedy Key West

When: Saturday, Jun 15, 2024 - 5:30 p.m.

Where: 218 Whitehead St, Unit 5, Key West, FL 33040


Comedy Key West presents the first show paying tribute to the funny side of the life and works of Ernest Hemingway. A few blocks down the street from the famed Hemingway House, where he lived and wrote for nine years, and around the corner from his legendary watering hole Sloppy Joe’s, comedian James Scott Patterson takes us on an hourlong tour of Hemingway’s childhood, writing career, adventuring, and, of course, drinking days. The humor ranges from the tragic-comic (it is Ernest Hemingway after all) to the witty, wild, and difficult to believe. The show is a happy hour celebration from 5:30 to 6:30 including a complimentary glass of Hemingway’s favorite red or white wine (Valpolicella or Sancerre, “crackling cold”) with your ticket. Join us for a one of a kind look at one of Key West’s most enduring (and funny) figures.  About the Host: James Scott Patterson is a standup comedian and writer who has performed on Comedy Central, been featured at the prestigious Montreal Comedy festival, and his latest album and comedy special “Superior Design” is available on all major streaming services.
