Hemingway in a Funny Way

Hemingway in a Funny Way

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.

Please note:

If you are purchasing Booth Seats, 1 Booth = 2 tickets for 2 people. Please do not purchase (2) Booths if you are coming with 2 people. We cannot refund erroneous additional booth purchases the night of the show.

Due to the adult content, themes, and language of our shows, we have an age requirement of 16 years old.

Showtime at 8:30 PM. Doors at 7:30 PM.

Tickets purchased in advance will ensure that groups can sit together. Please let us know in advance if you will be joining another party.

We ask that you please keep all conversations to a minimum during the show. It's a small room, and even whispering can be heard by the performers and people around you. If this seems like a no-brainer, it's because you are sober. After a drink or two, it sometimes seems less obvious!
