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.
