Patrick Monahan ‘The Disco Years’ Dances its way to The Atkinson

The family’s favourite funnyman (and occasional disco dancer) heads to The Atkinson as part of his 2016 tour this June with his brand new stand-up show ‘The Disco Years!

Charged by Patrick’s memories and reminiscences of being an immigrant to Great Britain, this is a laugh out loud show that is both thoughtful and smart as well as brilliantly silly!

In addition to touring the UK, Patrick plays to audiences all over Europe and has appeared in far-flung hotspots including Dubai, Bahrain and Costa Rica! He is very much in demand, performing literally hundreds of shows a year!

His many TV appearances include getting his feet wet on ITV’s ‘Splash!’ and appearing alongside the legendary Dame Edna Everage on ‘Celebrity Squares’! ‘Fake Reaction’ (ITV) ‘Man Up’ (Fox) ‘Not The One Show’ (London Live) ‘Comedy Annual’ (ITV1) ‘Daybreak’ (ITV1) ‘Loose Women’ (ITV1) ‘The Wright Stuff’ (C5) host of ‘Jongleurs Live!’ (Sky) and ‘12 Again’ (CBBC/BBC2). 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’.

Patrick was the winner of the 2011 ITV1 series ‘Show Me The Funny’ which led to the release of his debut DVD ‘Patrick Monahan Live’ (2 Entertain). He is also a regular MC and headlining act at the top London and UK comedy clubs and in addition to this he is in huge demand on the corporate circuit as an after dinner speaker and awards host. In addition to this Patrick is a keen runner and fundraises for the charity Zoe’s Place – this year he ran his 2nd London Marathon and he has run 3 Great North Runs!

 ‘A spellbinding narrative… delightful, impressive and very funny… if it is possible to make Monahan audiences love their boy more than they already do, then this is the show that will do it’.



‘These stories are honest, charming, and often hilariously recalled. Monahan’s enthusiasm throughout the show is contagious… this is a well put together show, and Patrick Monahan is a great comic’.✭✭✭✭ AUGUST 2015


‘Monahan possesses the rare ability to be hilarious without being outrageous’.



‘The same mix of control and on-stage charisma as a young Alan Davies’.
