One of the best shows I've seen. Really interesting and very funny. I've seen him before when he used to talk to the audience and ad lib but I enjoyed this new version of him and hearing about his life (immigrant working class upbringing in the north to his now middle class life in London with his posh partner), a lot more. Highly recommend.

We have seen his show previously the last time earlier this year in Nottingham and promised to see him again when we were up in Edinburgh for our annual visit. He did not disappoint with a clean, well paced show with his usual nod to Middlesbrough my partners hometown. Worthy of a bigger crowd and larger venue. A must see.

We often go and see Patrick as love the way he interacts and banters with the audience. He didn't do any of this in this show which we really missed.

Have seen Patrick many times and he's a good solid performer. Likeable and engaging, good off script too

“Be yourself!” Is the message on Patrick Monahan’s lips as he tells you why you shouldn’t put a washing machine in a caravan. The room is full of a damp sweaty audience, glad to have refuge in the Gilded Ballo...
