In a world of groups, hierarchies and class systems, everyone’s trying so hard to fit in. What’s wrong with being a misfit? Be you, be proud!

From the caravan to the middle class neighbourhood, it’s taken Patrick Monahan four decades to realise this. Enjoy his stand up observations on living his contemporary life alongside stories of his upbringing.

“this show is all about the story. It is helped by having one hell of a story to tell. Just to give you a flavour: Irish father meets Iranian mother, baby Pat’s first home in Khuzestan province is bombed and so the family drive 18,000 miles to Redcar. Where things get even less predictable.” Kate Copstick, Scotsman

As seen recently on BBC One’s The One Show, Loose Women (ITV), Asian Network (BBC).
