Netflix dropped a brand new series called Making Fun on March 4th which showcases the incredible creative talents of Jimmy DiResta and his team. Making Fun isn’t a creative competition, such as Blown Away, Ink Masters or Nailed It!, however.
The series sees famed toy maker Jimmy DiResta make childrens’ dreams come true. He says says during the show that he upped sticks and headed upstate after many years of being a toy designer in New York City but now it seems that instead of retiring with his many farm animals, Jimmy is doing things on a much bigger scale instead with the help of his team of makers.
Meet Making Fun’s Canadian Pat
Canadian Pat is one of the makers featured on Making Fun.
He helps create some incredible structures on the show in Jimmy’s workshop alongside Jackman, Graz and the rest of the team.
When Jimmy introduces Canadian Pat he says: “Your guess is as good as mine” before Pat cackles: “Let’s have some fun“, so it’s safe to say Canadian Pat is probably the wild card of the makers.
Jimmy also says that Canadian Pat is known for “three things, two of which are not having sleeves. Third being the Lathe“. He’s a master when it comes to creating things using the Lathe machine.
