Born in Chicago and raised in Woodbury, New Jersey, just across the state line from Philadelphia, Patti's mother, Beverly, was a jazz singer cum waitress.

"The best idea for a show ever!! a place where men can bond and do manly things females find unattractive. Too bad the new hosts are not as great, but adam and jimmy rock this season. a little ridiculous to have 6 discs on one hand though. all other 1/2 hour shows are on 4. also seems as though the box was printed before the dvds were completely arranaged. only 4 episodes to a disc!! the case is completely wrong showing 5 episodes on discs 1-5 and 1 episode + bonus on disc 6. turns out 4 episodes per disc on 1-5 and a whopping 6 episodes + bonus on disc 6 to make up for their stupidity. but overall thank you for releasing this on dvd. all episodes are magnificent - have been waiting for awhile for it. more nudity tho with season 3 :0) keep em comin!"
