Patrick Monahan and Stuart HudsonPatrick Monahan will provide a perfect tonic to the St.Patricks Day hangover. Patrick is of Irish / Iranian origin and has performed his solo shows across the globe. He has appeared on numerous television programmes and is a regular TV & studio warm up – on shows such as: BBC 1’s Bafta award winning ‘Friday Night Jonathan Ross’, “The Catherine Tate Show”, and “The Kumars at No.42”. A comedian with truly global appeal or as the Daily Telegraph puts it, “a one man ethnic melting pot, a star in the making”.

Monahan engages the audience with charming banter about local affairs and universal issues, but also combines animated story telling style that draws on his own experiences of growing up in Teesside and of his Irish and Iranian parentage.

A fresh and bright new face on the British comedy scene, in just two years Stuart Hudson has ripped up the scene in style. In just six gigs, he reached the final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition in Edinburgh, and followed that by scooping comedy website Chortle’s Newcomer of the Year award. He also won the prestigious and notorious Gong Show at London’s famous Comedy Store. His deceptively simple style, startling verbal play and sunder the counter rudeness delights audiences wherever he goes.
