Pat Devine said, “the hell with it.” Then, to show that he meant it, he bought a beat up Cadillac for $500 and drove it (as far as he could) across America. This show, complete with video and photos from the trip, is the story of what happened.

Patrick Devine has worked as a producer and correspondent in news/talk radio (KABC 790 AM Los Angeles), as an actor on the stage (Groundlings Improv) and television (“The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman”) and has worked as a writer and producer for television (Looney Tunes, Lovespring International). Patrick has a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Oregon and an M.A. in American History from California State University, Northridge.

  1. Who hasn’t at some time longed to travel across this wide, wide country without looking back? Pat Devine adds his own unique stamp to this quintessential American dream with his one-man show “Breaking Down in America.” Combining photos, video and a silken narrative style, Devine invites the audience to share his experiences from the backseat of the $500 Caddie he purchased for his trip. From “Tina Seville’s” baptism to her untimely but predicable demise, the story of man and car exploring the back roads of America never ceases to entertain. Favorite highlights include the unexpected sleepover and a priceless depiction of an argument with his fictitious car family. Despite (or perhaps because of) his self-described look of a meth addict, I was delighted to go along for the ride.
