Declared by The Washington Post as “unforgiving and darkly hilarious” and The Huffington Post as “the real hero of sitcom TV,” Patricia Williams (aka Ms. Pat) is a comedian, author, radio host, podcaster, and actress. Her critically acclaimed multiple Emmy-nominated multi-cam series The Ms. Pat Show, produced by Lee Daniels and Brian Grazer, premiered its third season in February 2023. The series is streaming on BET+ and Paramount+ with an edited version airing on BET linear. Season 1 of the show shattered viewership records on the streamer almost crashing the app and garnered a 2022 and 2023 Emmy nomination in the “Outstanding Direction For A Comedy Series” category. The Ms. Pat Show, based on Pat´s real-life story of an inner-city drug dealer turned suburban mom, has been a hit with fans and critics alike. The Hollywood Reporter raved “Think Roseanne of the 1980s and 1990s, but even rawer” and Essence Magazine gushed “Ms. Pat is headed for the comedy stratosphere.”
Following the success of The Ms. Pat Show, BET/Paramount Global signed Pat to a multi-genre overall deal under which she will produce, write and perform in new series and other projects-both scripted and unscripted- across all platforms. Under this deal, she debuted her new weekly court show Ms. Pat Settles It on BET, in which Pat takes hold of the gavel to settle people´s everyday disputes. Another hit for the rapidly emerging entertainment mogul, the series premiered as the No. 2 show on primetime television for Black viewers as well as Black women in the 18-49 demographic.
Pat´s hour standup special Y´All Wanna Hear Something Crazy?, directed by comedy legend Robert Townsend and Executive Produced by entertainment powerhouse Wanda Sykes, is also currently streaming on Netflix. The New York Times described the hour as “superb material” while Indiewire offered “There are a lot of comedy specials on Netflix these days, but Ms. Pat breaks through the noise.” In addition to her standup and TV projects, Pat currently serves as co-host of the long-running beloved morning radio show The Morning Culture with Big Tigger on V103.5 in Atlanta, GA. She also hosts her own wildly popular podcast The Patdown.
