Pat Monahan is the only comedian we’ve ever known who’s embarked on not one, but two national tours, at the same time! The first was a result of winning ITV’s ‘Show Me The Funny’ and the other was own tour his show “Hug Me I Feel Good”.

A notoriously warm and friendly comic he also holds the world record for “Longest Hug” at a time of 25 hours and 25 minutes set at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013.

He’s appeared on numerous television shows from BBC1, 2, 3 to ITV1 and 2, Channel 4, Channel 5, and Sky 1. And the reason he’s done all this? He’s absolutely 100% cast iron hilarious and never fails to entertain a crown into delightful hysterics. Frankly, once an act gets to this level they stop playing the circuit so this might be the last chance to see Monahan in a comedy club!
