Comedy Night with
Patrick Monahan - That 80s Show
Back at The George by popular demand!
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.
A fun filled first half full of games and dancing warms up for the second half which is That 80s Show. It’s the 1980s and Patrick’s Irish Iranian family arrives in Teeside escaping from the Iran war. Unique stand-up and a great night out! Directed by Phil Nicol.
