Patrick Monahan, Chris Washington & Matt Reed
Patrick Monahan is the loveable Teesider, known for his hugs, dancing and cake eating! 2011 Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award winner! 2011 ITV’s ‘Show Me The Funny’ Winner. 2012 Loaded Lafta’s winner!
As seen in BBC One’s Let’s Dance for Sport Relief and ITV’s Splash, Pat’s a regular on the UK comedy circuit, and is in demand at comedy clubs throughout Europe, and also in the Middle East, thanks to his chatty, friendly style mixed with his hilarious story telling.
As well as being one of the biggest names on the comedy circuit, Pat is also highly in demand as a studio warm up, working on shows such as Friday Night with Jonathan Ross an The IT Crowd – and he’s often to be seen on-screen on The Paul O’Grady Show (and the many replacements that have followed) as well as contributing to many talking head programmes and appearing on various Comedy Central shows.
Chris began performing stand up comedy in July 2012, and after five years, several hundred gigs for a host of reputable promoters up and down the country, and a well received Edinburgh debut show, he is fast becoming one of the most sought after new acts on the circuit.
In his early days Chris made the finals of several new act competitions, and was spotted by Jason Manford, who selected him to support him on several tour dates. With a cheeky Northern charm and hilarious tales it’s clear to see why Chris is flying up the comedy ladder.
Born and bred in Sunderland, Matt’s affable style has won him fans across the UK. He effortlessly plays with the crowd with a natural rapport that is found in few comics. Matt, always ready, never disappointing will always make a good gig – great.
In 2015 Matt took his debut show to the Edinburgh Fringe, retelling the four year ordeal of how he was stalked and cat-fished by an online admirer. The show won rave reviews from critics and audience alike, with Matt playing to sell-out audiences.
With so many gigs of every size under his belt, from audiences of 3000 to 30, there is pretty much no comedy situation Matt can’t handle. As pleasant as he is wonderfully brutal, Matt is a welcome addition to any comedy night entertaining the crowd while skillfully destroying any heckler that crosses his path.
