Never miss another 'Patrick Monahan' show
Monkey Business Comedy Club: Patrick Monahan, President Obonjo, Ethan Herschenfeld, Theo McCabe, Martin Besserman
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 featured in Ents24's top hardest-working comedians list in 2018, 2017 and 2016.

'President Obonjo has become a successful comedian because of his innovative use of the internet to engage with Lafta addicts online. The internet was part of an overall digital strategy that has turned thousands of supporters to embrace obonjomania.
'Now thousands are hooked on a daily dosage of Lafta and Obonjomania pill. You are guaranteed no side effects but you might be seen laughing out loud on your own after watching a clip or reading a note this could make people think you are going looney, Kolo or MAD.
'Obonjo has really shaped intellectual comedy and brought it to a home near you by phone, laptop, blackberry, TV and on stage' (http://www.comedycv.co.uk).
