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.

Patrick Monahan is adored by his audiences everywhere! He performs all over the
UK and Europe and has appeared in far-flung hotspots including Dubai, Bahrain and Costa Rica!
