Patrick Monahan - Rewind Selector 90's

Patrick compares life as an Irish/Iranian teenager in 90's Cool Britannia to today's Teen Brexit Britain.

‘He really hits the mark…great depth’ BroadwayBaby ****
Thought provoking, hilarious. A Fringe Legend!**** Mirror

Monahan's new stand-up show is about what life was like growing up in Britain during the 1990's as an Irish/Iranian immigrant whose family had come over from Iran a decade earlier. As identity cards and ‘Cool Britannia’ were being introduced, Monahan found himself on the periphery as a teenager - trying to blend in but ending up with all the other ethnic groups!

‘Rewind Selector 90’s’ is about identity, fitting in and enjoying the decade. ‘Drink and drugs and rock n’roll’ was the trade mark saying of the 1990's but for the tea total and drug free Monahan it was ‘cake and tea and R n’B!’ He still went to all night raves with his friends, but instead of party drugs he used fun size milky ways and mars bars to keep his energy levels up so he could dance all night!
