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.

Despite only picking up a microphone just over four years ago, Wayne Beese has quickly cemented a reputation as one of the most exciting up-and-coming comics in the Midlands. Born and bred in Dudley, he is demand both as an act, where he has performed at top comedy clubs such as the Glee in Birmingham and Manchester's Frog and Bucket, and increasingly as a host and compere.
Renowned for his banter, quick wit and improvisational skills, Wayne is resident MC at the award-winning Fitz of Laughter Comedy Club in Stourbridge and the popular Loffs At The Lamp in Dudley. He is also host of Live At The Civic at Brierley Hill Civic Hall, where he has introduced the likes of Ross Noble, Joe Lycett, Mark Watson, Doc Brown and Tom Stade to near-1,000 crowds in the last 12 months.
He has been nominated for a host of awards, including "Best MC" at last year's Midlands Comedy Awards, the Birmingham Comedy Festival Breaking Talent Award and Midlands Comedian of the Year at the annual What's On awards.
