STARRING: PATRICK MONAHAN, IGNACIO LOPEZ
DATE: SATURDAY 1ST JULY 2017 8PM (DOORS 7.30PM)
VENUE: GWYN HALL
The Neath Comedy Festival 2017 brings the very best of international stand-up comedy to Neath for the whole month of July and it all starts at the Gwyn Hall. On the opening night of the Festival we have two outstanding comics perform their Edinburgh Fringe show for us in a mouth-watering double bill.
Patrick Monahan: That 80’s Show
Winner of ITV’s Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesborough comic is a force of nature. Patrick blends a high energy comedy style with hilarious and engaging topical and observational material. A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd…!)
‘High energy and conviction, his material is great; he’s going to go far’ (The Sunday Times)
‘Monahan is a supremely engaging performer, adored by his audiences and capable of some terrific comedy’ (The Scotsman).
Ignacio Lopez: Españyolo
Spaniard/Welshman Ignacio Lopez offers a wonderfully witty insight into UK life through the eyes of an exotic outsider. Comedy, music, is there anything this lothario can’t do?
‘Impressive… I was totally taken in’ – Alan Davies
‘May actually have been a stroke of genius’ – Digital Spy
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS UNRESERVED SEATING IN THE STALLS – set as cabaret style with round tables for a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere.
Seats can be reserved in the Pit or circle areas if preferred.
Doors open at 7.30pm
