Patrick Monahan: I Walked, I Danced, Iran

Patrick Monahan – I Walked I Danced, Iran

Phil McIntyre Entertainment By Arrangement With Vivienne Smith Management

Patrick Monahan’s quirky mix of nationalities, as he notes, should make him an incredibly hard man, but instead has given him a conglomeration of cultures which act as fodder for his stand up routine. His passion to get to know the audience, which took up a considerable proportion of the show, meant participation was virtually compulsory and his quick reactions worked to great comedic effect. Supplementing this interaction with some engaging observational comedy led to moments of belly-laughing delight, but it seems slightly more difficult to give credit when much of the source of the comedy came unintentionally from the spectators. Recommended to those that enjoy participation, but slightly lacking in substantial material.
