Middlesbrough born comedian, Patrick Monahan, will bring his hilariously acclaimed tour ‘Rewind Selector 90s’ to Newcastle this month.
The Teesside comedian is a patron to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice in Middlesbrough after years of fundraising through taking part in the London Marathon, Great North Run and the Middlesbrough 10K annually for the hospice.
In March 2012 he took part in BBC One’s ‘Let’s Dance for Sport Relief’ where he danced to Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ and in March 2013 he visited Stokesley school and raised over £1,000 by getting the whole school to perform the Harlem Shake.
His hard work for charity and his dedication to comedy saw him earn the title of ‘Hardest Working Comic’ from entertainment site Ents24 in 2015, with this coming after the comic performed 104 shows during that one year alone.
The comic has featured and won many accolades on TV shows including ‘Take The Mike’ in 2001 and ‘Show Me the Funny’ in 2011. In January 2014 he took part in ITV’s second series of ‘Splash!’ where he came second out of five contestants, before becoming the first celebrity diver to be eliminated in heat three.
Monahan is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and even broke the 2013 record for the ‘longest hug’ at 25 hours 25 minutes, with fellow comedian Bob Slayer.
The talented comedian’s show will be split into two parts: The first part of the show will be a club set coupled with audience participation and the second half will analyse the life of 90s teenagers.
Patrick Monahan will perform at The Stand, Newcastle on Sunday 22nd April with his effortlessly hilarious show ‘Rewind Selector 90s’. Tickets, priced at £12.00 in advance (£10.00 for concessions), are available from thestand.co.uk.
