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.’

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