Patrick Monahan Interview – “As a kid I didn’t even know what a comedian was.”

February 26, 2013 |

Patrick Monahan prepares to embrace the UK with his all-new, aptly titled show ‘Shooting From The Lip!’

Following his massive sell-out run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe Teesside’s favourite comedian returns from his icy cold spell performing in Norway to continue his latest tour of the UK. Outright winner of the ITV1 series ‘Show Me The Funny’ culminating in the release of his debut DVD ‘Patrick Monahan Live’, the ad-lib king also won the 2011 Forth Radio Best Stand-Up People’s Choice Award whilst putting in an appearance in ‘The Wrestling’ winner of an Edinburgh 2011 Fringe First Award.

Patrick’s achievements also include Best Newcomer at the 2012 Loaded LAFTA Awards and he got downright sexy for Let’s Dance for Sports Relief on BBC1 last March, dressing up as none other than Rihanna. He was also spotted on the goggle box on programmes such as ‘The Comedy Annual’ (ITV1), ‘Daybreak’ (ITV1), ‘Loose Women’ (ITV1), and ‘The Wright Stuff ‘ (C5).

As he prepares to set off on his latest tour whilst also managing to make time for the Ha Ha Hadrian’s Wall Charity Walk (organised by fellow comedian Nick Banks and featuring a cracking lineup), we had a chat with him over a cherry bakewell. All aboard the hugging train… Read More

Lo and behold, sadly we have reached the climax of the latest series of zany audio raves from John Dredge and his heavily-coerced outfit made up of James Shakeshaft, Richard Cray, Greg Haiste, and Anna Emerson. What a ride it’s been with the podcast praised by the likes of the Radio Times (see above) and Chortle stating it’s what “Kenny Everett would be doing if he was alive today.”

There’s no time to fret though as they leave the building in fine style with the latest in extra-terrestrial specimens putting in a guest appearace and all this for the price of a single Green Shield stamp.

There’s also a suprise appearance from none other than David Lynch. (Oh, damn – I’ve just gone and spoilt it.)

Fear not though, this is by no means the end of John Dredge’s manic fifteen minute show. Word has it there’ll be more shennanigans in the very near future and we’ve still got series one to keep you going until then. Also, watch this space as we’ll be asking John just what’s in store right round the corner.

You can follow John on Twitter, Facebook and the 404 Funny website.
