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.

Saturday, 20th May 2017

Tickets £9 (Concessions £7) 14+

Doors open 7.30pm. Show starts 8pm

Ava Vidal
Ava Vidal is a cool and composed performer with an intriguing past. She was a teenage mum, she earned a living as a prison officer before turning to stand-up, a move inspired by watching Chris Rock. Ava became a mother at 18, and spent five years as a prison guard at Pentonville.

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…
