Show Me The Funny Live in Stevenage
A COMEDY competition aired on ITV1 will be bringing a live tour to Stevenage this weekend.
The Show Me The Funny Live tour, headlined by the winner of the series, Patrick Monahan, kicks off at the Gordon Craig Theatre on Saturday before visiting a further 11 venues in the next two weeks in cities including London, Sheffield and Canterbury.
After a six week battle between 10 comic hopefuls culminating in a final live from London’s Hammersmith Apollo three weeks ago, experienced comedian and ex-warm up man Monahan walked away with the ultimate prize in stand up; �100,000, his own nationwide tour and a DVD release.
The 35-year-old will now bring his winning performance to the stage in an act which involves audience interaction as well as animated story-telling, drawing on his experience of being the only stand-up in the world of Irish-Iranian decent.
Monahan will be joined by his fellow finalists, Dan Mitchell and Tiffany Stevenson, for the duration of the tour.
