Patrick Monahan - ‘Perfect game show host. Tiggerish energy that could power the National Grid’ London Evening Standard
Funny and adorable Irish/Iranian/Teessider comedian Patrick Monahan knows how to work a room and engage an audience with a strongly skilled blend of ad lib banter and stand up. ‘He has the dark looks and stubble of the Middle East, married to the charm of the Irish and the sense of fun of the Teessider. Omid Djalili meets Dave Allen you might say.’ Daily Mail. WINNER – ITV SHOW ME THE FUNNY
