Pat Monahan is the only comedian we’ve ever known who’s loves people so much he’ll hug everyone! He’s also embarked on not one, but two national tours, at the same time! The first was a result of winning ITV’s ‘Show Me The Funny’ and the other was own tour his show “Hug Me I Feel Good”. He’s incredibly affectionate, lovable, sociable and irresistibly charismatic and loves to meet anyone who wants to chat after the show. He’s also appeared on numerous television shows from BBC1, 2, 3 to ITV1 and 2, Channel 4, Channel 5, and Sky 1. Including being a bit of eye candy for the ladies in ITVs ‘Splash’ and BBC’s ‘Let’s Dance for Sport Relief’.

And the reason he’s done all this? He’s absolutely 100% cast iron hilarious and never fails to entertain a crown into delightful hysterics. Frankly, once an act gets to this level they stop playing the circuit so this might be the last chance to see Monahan in a comedy club!
