Patrick Harvey

Reads for free & accepts tips

Hey, I'm Patrick! I specialize in reading for commercials, TV comedies, and theatre.

I have a background in Shakespeare and work as a Shakespeare coach, and I f$%^ing love working with actors! Got some Shakespeare sides, a new monologue, a difficult dialect (my specialties include RP, Northern English, Standard Irish, and Northern Irish), or a commercial audition you're working on? Get in touch with me for coaching!

I'm increasing my reader rates in 2023, but aiming to keep things budget-friendly. Free Friday Reader services available! Gratefully accepting tips via Venmo (@dfwpadraig).

Glad to work with you on whatever you need help with!

Patrick Harvey received his BFA in Drama from NYU, and studied Shakespeare and Classical Theatre in Performance at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He has acted in the National Touring company of Ken Ludwig’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas in the lead role of Amos, off-Broadway at the esteemed Pearl Theatre Company (The Dingdong, Christmas Carol: a radio play) and in the Ford Studio at Signature Theatre (Artaud Artaud). He was also picked by Laura Benanti to act opposite her in a webisode promoting the Radio City Spring Spectacular.

Patrick’s other New York stage credits include plays at Dixon Place, The Tank, Columbia Stages, the Harold Clurman Festival of the Arts (Samuel Beckett’s All That Fall featuring Alvin Epstein), and Smith Street Stage.

A dual citizen of the United States and Ireland, Patrick is fluent in Irish Gaelic. He is cared for by his two cats, Maggie and Missy Elliott.

Fun fact: Patrick’s special skills include discovering vegan ramen, tacos, pizza, burgers, shakes, and poutine most anywhere in North America. Seriously, dude’s Google Maps expertise is scary.
