Local funny man Patrick Monahan brings his new stand-up show, Started From The Bottom, Now I’m Here, to The Forum Music Centre, Darlington on Tuesday 25th May.

Patrick was born in Iran before moving to the outskirts of Middlesbrough to live in a caravan. Flash forward two decades, and he’s now living with his upper-middle class girlfriend in a house.

Presented by local promoter Hilarity Bites, the rescheduled date sees the multi-award winning Irish Iranian comedian providing smart and funny observations on his new found, middle-class lifestyle, complete with ski holidays. A contrast from the poor, immigrant, working-class family life he grew up in.

Well known for giving out hugs at shows, he’ll have to curb his natural enthusiasm for this socially-distanced show, but his performance will lose none of its warmth and hilarity.
