“Manic physical comic” – The Guardian
“This gifted livewire commands the stage with a mix of wit and force of personality” – Evening Standard
Audience favourite Patrick Monahan blends a high energy comedy style with hilarious and engaging topical and observational material. Known for working a room, Patrick is adored by his audiences with whom he makes an effortless connection. He moves around the stage like a boxer working a ring, covering all angles and staying light on his feet. He is a walking advert for world harmony. Hearts will be broken, socks will be laughed off. Winner of the 2011 ITV1 series ‘Show Me The Funny’ this led to the release of his debut DVD ‘Patrick Monahan Live’. Subsequent TV credits include Splash!, Celebrity Squares, Fake Reaction, Man Up, Not The One Show, Jongleurs Live!, Daybreak, Loose Women and The Wright Stuff.
He also took part in Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC, won Best Newcomer at the Loaded LAFTA Awards and Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award for his hit show ‘Hug Me I Feel Good’.
Monahan’s humour travels well. He not only engages the audience with charming banter about local affairs and universal issues, but also combines animated story telling style that draws on his own experiences of growing up in Teesside, (North East of England) of Irish and Iranian Parentage! A comedian with truly global appeal or as the Daily Telegraph puts it, “a one man ethnic melting pot, a star in the making”.
