It’s the 1980’s 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 80’s Show’ takes us through Patrick’s youth, with anecdotes that are both hilarious and thought provoking.
Patrick Monahan is adored by his audiences everywhere! Very much in demand, he performs hundreds of shows a year and won 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. His most recent TV appearances include ‘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’.

On his return to The Little Theatre which celebrates 15 years of being in the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2017 Patrick Monahan says “one of the nicest venues in the UK to play, it might be called the Little Theatre but it has such a big heart! It’s got a big stage to run around on, always a beautiful audience watching and the most amazing staff that not only make sure the show runs smoothly but give you a hug & kiss before and after the show!”
