Darlington Comedy Festival 2013: Patrick Monahan, Ray Bradshaw, Tiernan Douieb
Hilarity Bites regular monthly comedy club at Vesuvio Wines slots in nicely into the Darlington Comedy Festival line up, featuring loveable Teessider Patrick Monahan (winner of Show Me The Funny 2011), Ray Bradshaw and MC Tiernan Douieb.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Winner of ITV's Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesbrough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg.
In 2012 he took part in Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC, won Best Newcomer at the Loaded LAFTA Awards and Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award for his hit show ‘Hug Me I Feel Good’. He played the role of the dastardly Captain Hook in ‘The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan’ at the Worthing Pavilion from December 2016 to early Jan 2017.
A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd...!)
'High energy and conviction, his material is great; he's going to go far' (The Sunday Times)
'Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen' (Daily Mail)
'Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous' (Three Weeks)
'The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies' (The Herald)
'Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy' (The Scotsman).
Patrick Monahan was placed in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians 2017 and 2016.

Scottish Comedian Of The Year finalist and fast rising MC. Ray is ginger and it's caused him some pain. Expect a set peppered with witty one liners!
'Affable Glaswegian Ray Bradshaw compered and he instantly had the busy venue in stitches' (Edinburgh Evening News).

Tiernan Douieb is a natural compere. He's like a big tickling stick... and that's a good thing. But don't take our word for it, here are a few reviews from his 2009 Edinburgh Show:
'An endearing and good natured performer (The Stage)
'This densely packed set is delivered by a comic with charm and a sweetly boyish perspective….Douieb has an accomplished and charming manner and some genuinely funny material' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)
'Douieb has more than enough energy to go round, and he's a hugely engaging onstage presence...' (British Comedy Guide)
'... gets the juxtaposition between heavy context and winning punchlines right’ (Festmag)
'With this fresh style and material he blows so many other Fringe comedians out of the water' (Three Weeks)
