Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Patrick Monahan, Chris Washington, and host Matt Reed

Show details:

Patrick Monahan

Patrick Monahan

Patrick Monahan is the loveable Teesider, known for his hugs, dancing and cake eating! 2011 Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award winner! 2011 ITV's 'Show Me The Funny' Winner. 2012 Loaded Lafta's winner!

As seen in BBC One's Let's Dance for Sport Relief and ITV's Splash, Pat's a regular on the UK comedy circuit, and is in demand at comedy clubs throughout Europe, and also in the Middle East, thanks to his chatty, friendly style mixed with his hilarious story telling.

As well as being one of the biggest names on the comedy circuit, Pat is also highly in demand as a studio warm up, working on shows such as Friday Night with Jonathan Ross an The IT Crowd - and he's often to be seen on-screen on The Paul O'Grady Show (and the many replacements that have followed) as well as contributing to many talking head programmes and appearing on various Comedy Central shows.


“Hilarious without being outrageous” - Three Weeks

“Supremely engaging, adored by audiences” - The Scotsman

“There isn’t a comic quite like him, his hugs alone are worth the price of admission” - New Current

Chris Washington

Chris Washington

Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee - 2017

Chris began performing stand up comedy in July 2012, and after five years, several hundred gigs for a host of reputable promoters up and down the country, and a well received Edinburgh debut show, he is fast becoming one of the most sought after new acts on the circuit.

In his early days Chris made the finals of several new act competitions, and was spotted by Jason Manford, who selected him to support him on several tour dates. With a cheeky Northern charm and hilarious tales it’s clear to see why Chris is flying up the comedy ladder.


“Mark my words, he will be a big name” - Love Comedy

“Worth the entrance fee alone. Look out for this man!!” - Otley Town Post

“Hilarious stories” - Hull Daily Mail

Matt Reed

Matt Reed

Born and bred in Sunderland, Matt's affable style has won him fans across the UK. He effortlessly plays with the crowd with a natural rapport that is found in few comics. Matt, always ready, never disappointing will always make a good gig - great.

In 2015 Matt took his debut show to the Edinburgh Fringe, retelling the four year ordeal of how he was stalked and cat-fished by an online admirer. The show won rave reviews from critics and audience alike, with Matt playing to sell-out audiences.

With so many gigs of every size under his belt, from audiences of 3000 to 30, there is pretty much no comedy situation Matt can't handle. As pleasant as he is wonderfully brutal, Matt is a welcome addition to any comedy night entertaining the crowd while skillfully destroying any heckler that crosses his path.


“Absolutely hilarious... had the crowd rolling around” - BBC

“Brilliant... always original one of the newest stars of comedy” - The Leeds Guide

“Brilliantly handled a very difficult room, this fashionably unkempt lad will go far” - Swansea Telegraph

This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.
