Desi Central Comedy Show: Patrick Monahan, Guz Khan, Sameena Zehra, Slim
"Desi Comedy Central is back with another amazing line up for a night of nothing but laughter.
Featuring Patrick Monahan, Guz Khan, Sameena Zehra and Slim.
Irish Iranian audience favourite Patrick Monahan blends a high energy comedy style with hilarious and engaging topical and observational material. Known for working a room, Patrick is adored by his audiences with whom he makes an effortless connection!
Guz Khan is an actor, writer and stand-up comedian from the notoriously gangster city that is Coventry.
He first came to prominence through his comedic online videos which were performed in the guise of various characters that he created. He coined the stage name Guzzy Bear and addressed many social issues through this vessel. The popularity of this has led to a social media following of over 30 thousand people in less than 6 months and millions of views and shares from a very diverse demographic.
Sameena is a storyteller, political satirist, feminist and humanist with a unique take on the world, equally at home exploring the individual experiences of daily life and the larger issues of the world we live in. She has performed her solo shows all over the world, including Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe, Adelaide Fringe and New Zealand Fringe.

He appeals to all ages, genders, race and nationalities and has the ability to capture different aspects of everyday life and twist it into his own brand of comedy. He was born in South London, England of Jamaican parentage."

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...!)
