Patrick Monahan is the winner of ITV1's Show Me The Funny, a six-part show where ten contestants battled it out in weekly heats to prove their comedy credentials. Patrick's moment of triumph came in the grand final which was broadcast live from London's famous Hammersmith Apollo. This, the ultimate prize in British comedy, included a cash prize of £100,000, a nationwide multi-date solo tour, and this, his debut DVD. Patrick may well be the only stand-up in the world of Irish-Iranian decent, but brought up on Teeside. He sees his background as a real bonus and credits talking about it as his breakthrough. Patrick has headlined the prestigious Comedy Store and performed around the world from the west of Ireland to Dubai.
