PATRICK MONAHAN ‘THAT 80’S SHOW’ 2017 UK TOUR

Saturday 29th April

Tickets £14 (Concessions £10)

Doors open 7:30pm – 8pm start

It’s the 1980’s and Patrick Monahan’s Irish Iranian family arrives in Teesside escaping from the Iran war. Patrick’s memories and reminiscences of being an immigrant to Great Britain make for a totally unique stand-up show!  ‘That 80’s Show’ is the sequel to Patrick’s hit 2015 show ‘The Disco Years’ both directed by Phil Nichol. Instead of focusing on 80s pop-culture, Patrick talks about his personal experience of the 80s: moving with his parents from Iran to the UK, starting school without any English, his Irish/Iranian heritage, his dad’s experience of discrimination, his mother’s experience of migration.

 ‘His tales of being an immigrant to Britain are thought-provoking yet hilarious, he loves his audience and they love him back. Patrick is a Fringe legend and it’s easy to see why.’

DAILY MIRROR ✭✭✭✭AUGUST 2016

‘He really hits the mark…it’s a show totally struck by changing fears and prejudices. Mixing his youth with UK politics, world politics and the notion of nationality gives a great depth to his set without ever being moralizing.’

www.broadwaybaby.com✭✭✭✭ AUGUST 2016

‘He jokes about IS, the IRA and UK and world politics rather than the pop culture of the period.
But fear not, it’s still a very funny show.’

www.one4review.wordpress.com✭✭✭✭AUGUST 2016

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

✭✭✭✭✭ THREE WEEKS

‘There isn’t a comic quite like him and his hugs alone are worth the price of admission’.

✭✭✭✭✭ www.thenewcurrent.co.uk

Patrick Monahan is adored by his audiences everywhere! He performs all over the UK and 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 and was the winner of the 2015 www.Ents24.com ‘Hardest Working Comedian of the Year Award’ for playing the highest number of venues in the UK! His many TV appearances include ‘Weekend’ (ITV) ‘Safeword’ (ITV2) ‘Celebrity Squares’ (ITV) ‘Fake Reaction’ (ITV2) and ‘The One Show Festival 2015’ (BBC1).

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.

From the 2nd of December to the 8th of January 2017, Patrick will be appearing at the Worthing Pavilion playing the role of the dastardly Captain Hook in ‘The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan’. The JM Barrie classic tale of the boy who refused to grow up gets plenty of 21st century treatment, with spectacular flying sequences and the introduction of the essential pantomime dame Able Mabel.

www.worthingtheatres.co.uk/peter-pan  Patrick’s UK tour starts on the 4th of February 2017.

Tickets available on the door for tonight’s Rolling in the Aisles with Martin Mor! Doors open 7:30pm – 8pm Start

Saturday, 22nd April 2017

Tickets £9 (Concessions £7) 14+

Doors open 7.30pm. Show starts 8pm

MARTIN MOR

Martin comes from Northern Ireland, and after a successful career as a circus performer, he turned his attention on the unsuspecting comedy circuit.

With almost 30 years experience as a professional performer, Martin has established himself as one of the UK’s most popular and in-demand comedians.

Martin has performed successfully at events of all description; from the Hammersmith Apollo to a show for the inmates of an Italian prison, from comedy clubs to performing before members of the British Royal Family.

Very much the comedian’s comedian, Martin has been the support act of choice for; Frankie Boyle, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jasper Carrot, Patrick
Kielty, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan, and once Tina Turner.

Martin has numerous appearances on radio and television.

As well as devising and performing his own BBC television show, he has written jokes for some of the biggest names in British comedy.

Martin is a specialist MC, a regular headline act at most of the UK’s major comedy clubs, and also performs at comedy and arts festivals.

A truly global performer, Martin has worked throughout the known world performing his shows in Britain, Ireland, Australia, Philippines, USA, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Cyprus, Falkland Islands, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Mainland China.

Martin’s photograph is featured on the popular board game Trivial Pursuits, (The Genus Edition). On an arts entertainments square, he is seen wearing a
leotard.

“A comedy institution” The Guardian

“World class” The Scotsman.

“Martin is the act that has influenced me the most, the UK comedy circuit would not be the same without him.”

Frankie Boyle.

“A very funny lad, with the best beard in the business.”

Johnny Vegas.

Sarah Callaghan

Sarah Callaghan is an award-winning comedian and writer.

In 2014 she was named as ‘One To Watch’ by Time Out Magazine and in 2015 she took her critically-acclaimed debut hour show Elephant to the Edinburgh Fringe. A confessional exploration of escape and ambition, Elephant received great reviews across the board and Sarah was widely heralded as an exciting new comedic voice, a status cemented by her Malcolm Hardee Award nomination for ‘Act Most Likely To Make A Million Quid’.

“The instant she steps on stage you know you’re in the presence of someone new and special” ★★★★★ The Mirror “A powerhouse. She’s an utter natural on stage” Chortle ****

“class comedy, reminiscent of a young Kathy Burke” The Herald ****

JAMES SHERWOOD
Like many an Essex boy before him, James Sherwood was raised in Oxford, Bristol, Essex, and London, went to Magdalen College, Oxford and sang in the choir. Early comedy success included being a semi-finalist in ITV’s stand-up talent show Take the Mike, being a runner-up in the BBC New Comedy Awards and the FHM Holsten Pils Comedy Final.

Having originally made a name for himself on the live circuit as a topical comic, in recent years James has incorporated a number of self-penned, original comic songs into his act. Although this involves lugging a keyboard around with him, it’s worth it – songs about grammatical inaccuracies and failed nightclub courtships have had audiences literally crying with laughter

James contributes the funnies to radio shows across the BBC, including The Now Show, The News Quiz and BBC7.

He regularly reviews the newspapers on Sky News, writes a regular blog on The Guardian website and spends most Sundays singing in a church choir, despite not actually being religious.

His debut Edinburgh show ‘I Know What You Did Last Sunday’, was a total sell-out and was followed in similar fashion with ‘James Sherwood’s Somewhat Premature Review Of 2007’.

“Brilliantly conceived and very funny … Sherwood has phenomenal stage presence” The Scotsman

“Worth the ticket price alone … clever, funny and will have fans singing along” Chortle

“Savage satire” Sunday Times “Fantastic” Time Out

“If you ever wondered what would happen if Bill Bailey and Marcus Brigstocke had a child…” Chortle

Over the last 2 years, our compere Nick Wills has created a fun and friendly club where top acts love to perform and where the audience play their part in making a great night.

Phil McIntyre Entertainments proudly presents

James Acaster: Classic Scrapes
James Acaster is releasing his first ever book this year, James Acaster’s Classic Scrapes, which is going to be a collection of self-deprecating anecdotes about scrapes James has gotten himself into over the years, famed from the slot of the same name on Josh Widdicombe’s XFM radio show.

Publishers Headline say: ‘Unfortunately for James, fame and critical acclaim haven’t prevented him from ending up in a breathtaking amount of farcical misadventures. From having to hide in a bush outside Basingstoke station overnight wearing a bright red dress, to drunkenly incurring the wrath of night bus lads, to being the only person in history to get “cabbaged” by a child, James apparently lives his life in a perpetual sitcom.’

Acaster, who has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times in a row, said: ‘I have lived an extremely blessed life save for enough awful/stupid experiences to fill a book with and so I thought it only fair to fill a book with them.

Come along and see him read sneak peaks from the book.

Click here to preorder the book.

‘There’s no one better at constructing a show than Acaster’ (Guardian)

‘Comic genius’ (Evening Standard)

‘He really is rewriting the comedy rulebook’  (Time Out).

‘A virtuoso display of comic invention’ (Chortle).

A chance viewing of a Chris Rock routine inspired her to pursue a career in comedy, and she quickly became a fixture of the stand-up circuit. Ava Vidal juggles motherhood with a hectic schedule of club dates and TV appearances, both as a comedian and a commentator. Critically judged as ‘a face of the future’, Ava performs in the UK, America, Canada and Australia, and is an occasional journalist. Continue reading…
