Audience favourite Patrick blends a high energy comedy style with hilarious and engaging topical and observational material.

Known for working a room, Patrick is adored by his audiences with whom he makes an effortless connection. Since Patrick started performing stand-up he has had a meteoric rise up the comedy ladder. He is now a regular MC and headlining act at the top London and UK comedy clubs including the prestigious Jongleurs Circuit and the Comedy Store.

He has appeared on numerous Television shows from BBC1, 2, 3 to ITV1 and 2, C4, Channel 5, Sky 1 and UKTV, as a presenter, guest interviewee, panel member and performer. Currently much sought after as a regular TV & Studio warm up – on shows such as: BBC 1’s Bafta award winning ‘Friday Night Jonathan Ross’, “The Catherine Tate Show”, and “The Kumars at No.42”.

Patrick’s humour travels well. He not only engages the audience with charming banter about local affairs and universal issues, but also combines animated story telling style that draws on his own experiences of growing up in Teesside, (North East of England) of Irish and Iranian Parentage. A comedian with truly global appeal or as the Daily Telegraph puts it, “a one man ethnic melting pot, a star in the making”.

“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!”

Daily Mail


“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.”
