Pat Swearingen | Peoples Improv Theater

Pat Swearingen

Pat Swearingen is from Danville, Illinois. Gene Hackman and Dick Van Dyke are also from that city.  Just sayin’. You can catch him with his improv house team Hero Complex on Wednesday nights as part of Super Free Wednesdays. He will soon be making his debut in “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical” ( and was in the original casts of the “Unauthorized: The Musical” version of “Back To The Future” (Doc Brown), “The Hunger Games” (Caesar) and “Nightmare on Elm Street” (Freddy Krueger). Having studied at The PIT and UCB, Pat is lucky to be a much in demand improv coach/instructor and his favorite credit is teaching kids how to act and write plays for eleven seasons at the Williamstown Theatre Festival through an extension of the 52nd Street Project. Also, if you don’t blink, you can catch him dancing at da club in the “I’m Rick James, b***h!” sketch for “Chappelle’s Show”.

“Pat Swearingen is a powerhouse! By the end of the first act I was in love, by the end of the second I had discovered a new emotion stronger than that just to feel for him!”-OnStage

“Highlights include Pat Swearingen who almost single-handedly steals the show as hilariously over-the-top TV host Caesar.”
