Patrick Monahan...That 80s ShowTickets Free
Welcome to the Third Stage…the home for our range of more informal spoken word and music events in the surroundings of the Theatre Royal’s Dress Circle Foyer. The bar will be open so take your seat, relax and enjoy.
It’s the 1980’s and Patrick’s Irish Iranian family arrive in Teesside escaping from the Iran war. Patrick’s memories and reminiscences of being an immigrant in Great Britain combined with his hilarious, high-energy stand up produces a unique comedy show that will attempt to bring nations together through the power of 80s disco!
As well as a prolific stand-up comic, Patrick Monahan has become a regular face on TV, with appearances on Splash!, Safeword and Celebrity Squares, as well as being the 2011 winner of ITV’s Show Me the Funny.
Suitable for audiences aged 12+
