Patrick Monahan plays Ropery Hall
Patrick Monahan, who is appearing at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall on Saturday (Sept 25) has had a meteoric rise up the stand-up comedy ladder.
He started off on the glamorous Irish/Iranian/Geordie stand-up circuit where he developed his chatty & friendly, story telling style and is now a regular on the UK comedy circuit including the Edinburgh Festival as well as Europe and the Middle East.
“Patrick has gone from open spot to headline act in an incredibly short length of time” said Liz Bennet of Ropewalk Events. “H is now a regular MC and headline stand up performer at the UK’s premier comedy clubs including the prestigious Jongleurs circuit and the Comedy Store as well as hugely in demand in front of camera as well as a TV warm up comedian due to his lovability and clean funny material.”
An original writer and clever improviser skilled in audience interaction, Patrick’s versatility, likeability and engaging stage presence has popular appeal, be it, stand-up, comedy character, host, presenter!
“Patrick is fast becoming known as having the ability to really work a room and work with an audience whilst (rare today) keeping it clean,” said Liz.
As well as a regular TV & studio warm up on shows such as Friday Night Jonathan Ross he has also appeared as a contributor to nine out of 12 episodes of Channel Five’s That’s So Last Week and has appeared on BBC’s Armstrong and Miller Show, Inside Out and as a panel member on the comedy quiz show Sudoko Street Challenge.
Supporting Patrick on Saturday night will be Alan Seaman.
Tickets for the show, which starts at 8pm, cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door and can be booked by calling 01652 660380 or online at www.roperyhall.co.uk
