Patrick Monahan...That 80s Show

Patrick Monahan...That 80s Show

Tickets 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.

‘He really hits the mark…it’s a show totally struck by changing fears and prejudices. Mixing his youth with UK politics, world politics and the notion of nationality gives a great depth to his set without ever being moralising.’

 ‘Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous’.

‘His tales of being an immigrant to Britain are thought-provoking yet hilarious, he loves his audience and they love him back. Patrick is a Fringe legend and it's easy to see why.’
