Patrick McKenna At last year's Second City Alumni gala, the hands-down funniest performer was Patrick McKenna. Best known for his TV work as techno-nerd Harold in The Red Green Show and tough-nosed Marty on Traders, he made TV history in 1998 by earning acting Geminis for comedy and drama in the same year. The guy's versatile, as he'll show in classic sketches and improv tomorrow night (Friday, September 5) at the Second City gala alongside such alums as Robin Duke, Joe Flaherty, Lee Smart and Tony Rosato.
