Patrick Monahan 'rewind selector' Show
Date: 13th October 2017
Location: Studio, Royal Spa Centre
Patrick compares life as an Irish/Iranian teenager in 90's Cool Britannia to today's Teen Brexit Britain.
"Brand new stand up show from multi award winning Patrick Monahan who compares life as an Irish/Iranian teenager in the 90's. As identity cards and ‘Cool Britannia’ were being introduced, Monahan found himself on the periphery as a teenager - trying to blend in but ending up with all the other ethnic groups!
‘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. **** Mirror
He really hits the mark…great depth’ BroadwayBaby ****

‘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 moralizing.’

‘He jokes about IS, the IRA and UK and world politics rather than the pop culture of the period.
But fear not, it’s still a very funny show.’
‘Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous’.

‘There isn’t a comic quite like him and his hugs alone are worth the price of admission’.
