Let's meet the cast!
Originally illustrated in a Jack Deebs comic, Patrick escaped “Cool World” to pursue the comedic life of acting like a “noid” (don’t tell Detective Frank Harris). He is thrilled to help bring laughter to Cincinnati through sketch comedy again. Lets play.
When Katherine isn’t breaking backs or cracking skulls in Wilkymacky alley, she can be found up on stage for your viewing pleasure. She hails from Porkopolis, but first became part of the Bye Bye Liver family in St. Louis. She knew that Cincinnati is the beer drinkin’ town and found the best talent around to make your sides split. Peace. Love. Social!
Elizabeth A. Harris
Elizabeth has peddled her acting talents for such companies as Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati, Know Theatre of Cincinnati, New Edegcliff Theatre, and Covedale Center for the Performing Arts. Her other talents are peddled upon request and for the right price. Her comedic talents; get your mind out of the gutter! Elizabeth teaches acting in Northern Kentucky University’s Theatre Department and UC-CCM’s Certificate Acting Program. She keeps her students rolling with laughter…..mostly due to her special dress up day, “Princess Leia Fridays.” Elizabeth possesses a BA in acting, a MA in theatre with an emphasis in directing, and is currently pursuing a MFA in playwriting. When she grows up Elizabeth hopes to pick back up on that medical career she left to become an actor. You don’t need training for that, right?

Your boy Mitchell D. has been a man around town for years now. You may remember him from such memorable roles like, “That one guy” and who could forget such unforgettable productions such as, “You know, that thing we saw at that one place.” It’s time to sit back, relax with a shot (or 17) and find out why all the critics agree that your boy Mitchell D. is, “Who?”.
Lauren has been forcing people to watch her perform since age 2. She was a complete unknown before that. And while she’d love to think that they were laughing with her – she knows the truth. As a diagnosed wine-o, Lauren copes with her condition by resorting to getting drunk off the wine stored away in her home, starting with a half of a bottle and eventually breaking into the boxes of wine she buys in bulk to supply her needs. Enjoying the numbing properties of wine daily, Lauren usually starts drinking with friends, then drinks alone…with her cats… She has whored herself out as a performer and teacher at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theatre, Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, Falcon Theatre, Cincinnati Fringe Festival and the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music Preparatory Theatre Arts Department.
Kate Mock Elliott
Kate was born to a pair of troubadours in Medieval France. She was kidnapped as an infant by a villainous druid and taken to the jungles of Madagascar where she was rescued by a kindly family of lemurs. They raised her and taught her all she knows about time travel, copious drinking, and piano playing. Every performance goes out to them – I love you, Sheema and Mortoosi!
Grace is the tall one. A Cincinnati transplant, she prides herself on her beer snobbery and her penchant for musical theatre. She once got an award for being “zesty.” Her greatest accomplishments include her third grade soccer game, fifth grade spelling bee and eighth grade talent show. She peaked early.
From a young age Josh knew he was born to engineer and construct the Bye Bye Liver stage set which many have deemed his pièce de résistance. Josh attributes much of his success to his architectural influences including M.C. Escher and Fischer Price. Josh attended the Clark Griswold School of exterior illumination and graduated top in his class. Hobbies include nailguns and bacon. Oh, and bourbon.
Blake is excited to join the cast of Bye Bye Liver, combining two of his favorite pastimes: Making people laugh and drinking. Born and raised in KY, Blake has Bourbon pumping through his veins. He spent several years in LA after college pursuing Acting and Stand Up Comedy. But, like most out of work actors, he spent plenty of time working behind the bar, as well as sitting on the other side. Blake was fortunate enough share a bar stool next to some of Hollywood’s elite drinkers including Kiefer Sutherland, Nick Nolte and Mel Gibson. He credits these legends with taking him to a whole new level of drinking. Enjoy the show!
