Join Patrick for good, clean fun
You may recognise Patrick Monahan as the winner of from ITV's Show Me The Funny – the comedy world's answer to The Apprentice.
Or you may recognise him from the glitzy, mirrored surroundings of the 2012 Freedom Festival Spiegeltent.
Or, more than likely, you may sort-of recognise him as the bloke who dressed up as Rihanna and made a prat of himself on Let's Dance For Sport Relief, earlier this year.
Either way, you will probably have guessed that the half- Iranian, Half-Irish, all-Teeside funnyman's star is on the rise.

Mixing a blend of warm, whimsical anecdote, self-deprecating charm and a fair amount of audience joshing, the comedian has been building a slow, gradual name for himself on the live circuit for more than a decade – with his upward trajectory being given a large skyward jolt by his profile- raising stint on the TV.
There is no need to scan the TV listings pages to see when you can get your next Monahan fix as he will be bringing his feelgood, huggable live show to The Other Side Comedy Club at Pave in Princes Avenue, Hull, this Sunday.
"Ahhh, it's all rock'n'roll right now," says the comic, who prides himself on his family-friendly, clean comedy, but also cites cutting-edge and, occasionally, controversial stand-ups such as Dave Allen as his hero.
"The TV show was massive exposure for me, but I've been doing comedy for as long as I've been breathing."
"It isn't something I set out to do but I often get through a night of stand-up without any swearing at all and my act is pretty clean.
"A lot of people come up to me afterwards and give me a hug and thank me for that.
"I like family shows. I see a lot of comics, who are some of the nicest, most chilled people off stage, just lose control when they get out there, and swear and rant.
"And sometimes I just think 'what are you doing that for?'"
