Patrick Monahan – That 80s Show
It’s the 1980s and Patrick Monahan’s Irish Iranian family arrives in Teesside escaping from the Iran war. Patrick’s memories and reminiscences of being an immigrant to Great Britain make for a unique stand-up show! ‘That 80s Show’, directed by Phil Nichol, is the sequel to Patrick’s hit 2015 show ‘The Disco Years’ and takes us through his youth with anecdotes that are both hilarious and thought provoking.
Much-loved festival favourite Patrick Monahan is adored by his audiences everywhere! Patrick performs all over the UK and Europe and has appeared in far-flung hotspots including Dubai, Bahrain and Costa Rica! He is very much in demand, performing literally hundreds of shows a year and was the winner of the 2015 www.Ents24.com ‘Hardest Working Comedian of the Year Award’ for playing the highest number of venues in the UK!
Patrick is a regular MC and headlining act at the top London and UK comedy clubs and very popular on the corporate circuit as an after dinner speaker and awards host. He is also a keen marathon runner fundraising for the charity Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice. His most recent TV appearances include ‘Weekend’ (ITV) ‘Safeword’ (ITV2) ‘Celebrity Squares’ (ITV) ‘Fake Reaction’ (ITV2) and ‘The One Show Festival 2015’ (BBC1).
‘A spellbinding narrative… delightful, impressive and very funny… if it is possible to make Monahan audiences love their boy more than they already do, then this is the show that will do it’.
