Pat Godwin

Pat Godwin

with Ziggy Klett

Pat Godwin has blossomed into one of the most clever and prolific, comedy songwriters in the business. Pat first got national airplay with the holiday classic he crafted with his brothers James and Jack called, “Let’s Put Christ Back in Christmas” from the album Reindeer Games. After that, it wasn’t long before Godwin’s talents were being used on radio morning

shows; a medium Pat is more than familiar with. He’s appeared on every top morning show you can think of, worked for 6 years as a part of Philadelphia’s Morning Zoo, 3 years for The Bob & Tom Show, and was a frequent guest and contributor to both Howard Stern’s radio and TV shows.

It comes as no surprise that Godwin is enjoying some success, seeing as how he possesses one of the most entertaining and original live shows in the business. He was featured on NBC's Last Comic Standing last year.

Because he has such strong material and highly developed improvisational skills, no two shows are ever the same… not even close.

And don’t let that sly boyish smile fool you; it only takes about three seconds on stage to realize that Pat’s comedy has an edge to it. With a mix of quirky, personal musings and off-the-cuff remarks, Godwin can

segue in to any one of his songs, performed in an endless array of musical styles. He recently headlined The Irish Comedy Tour employing his vast catalog of Irish material and original drinking songs like, “Switch To Beer” and “Maybe It’s Time To Go Home”.

Though Pat’s been charming audiences in clubs for years and has been featured on every major radio morning show in the country, one of his greatest achievements came with the release of 2005’s "Under the Bed". Godwin wrote and recorded an eclectic compilation of new tunes, and live favorites, as well as exorcising some of the demons left behind from a relationship gone wrong. But don’t let that dark description scare you; "Under the Bed" is hilarious, and getting heavy rotation on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Show. It contains the Number 1 most requested song, "Gangsta Folk," as well as the International Songwriting Competition award winning, “First Date,” and the smash hits “Nobody Speaks English, Anymore” and “Voices In My Head.” The new CD Captured Live was released in the Fall of 2010 to rave reviews.

Ziggy Klett

Ziggy Klett was born in the deep north. The youngest of six children, he is four generations deep into an evil brew of Catholic rage and Jewish guilt. Often ridiculed as a youth for sporting bizarre hairstyles and colorful Norwegian sweaters, he quickly developed a twisted sense of humor. As a prolific bed wetter, his imaginary childhood friend, Mr. Peanut, guided him skillfully through a peculiar childhood of dumpster fires and petty theft.

A shaving scandal involving the girl’s archery team marred junior high for Ziggy; high school lowlights include being named valedictorian of his summer school class, being selected most likely to be water boarded, an unfortunate period of incarceration for his involvement in a pyramid-marketing scheme of homemade Tasers. Luckily, all charges were later dropped and he did, eventually, graduate.

College was a continuous blur of raucous parties and sophomoric stunts. Then classes started. After graduating (sort of) cum laude, Ziggy spent a brief period of time teaching Driver’s Ed at The Sorbonne in Paris and English as a Second Language in Detroit.

Comedy came quite naturally to Ziggy because, frankly, there was nothing else left to do. His comedic style can only be described as a bizarre cross between Sam Kinison, Robin Williams and Yves Montaigne. He is fast and furious, deep and shallow, high and low, but, mostly, he is simply pure, unadulterated Ziggy.
