Patrick Monahan

“Perfect game show host. Tiggerish energy that could power the National Grid” – London Evening Standard

Funny and adorable Irish/Iranian/Teessider comedian Patrick Monahan knows how to work a room and engage an audience with a strongly skilled blend of ad lib banter and stand up.

“He has the dark looks and stubble of the Middle East, married to the charm of the Irish and the sense of fun of the Teessider. Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen you might say.” – Daily Mail


Patrick has worked his way up the comedy circuit ladder and is now a regular MC and headlining act at the top London and UK comedy clubs. He has performed at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival for a number of years at the Gilded Balloon.

Patrick has spent the last 2 years developing his theatre touring shows and in the past year he has toured the UK as well as performed a run at the Adelaide Comedy Festival (2011) with his family show and also an evening stand up show.
