Patrick Monahan: Game On
Patrick Monahan explores the world and history of children's street games and play through this themed stand up show. Dipping into his favourite games from his Teesside roots he shares childhood memories and experiences with the audience in this fun filled hour. Be prepared to be tigged!
Patrick Monahan's such a friendly, frisky, good-natured chap that it's a delight to spend an hour in his company.
That he's got such an innocent, playful manner also makes the choice of subject for his first solo Edinburgh show a logical one: childhood fun and games.
But it's also such a slight topic, offering nothing much of substance or genuine interest behind his winning smile.
For much of the show he leads us gently the rules to playground favourites like tig, bulldog or hopscotch. Only problem is, there can't be many of us who weren't aware of what these things are in the first place.
Instead he's tapping into the easy nostalgia of 'anyone remember...' tales that use straightforward observation in place of insight and humour.
That said, there is a lot in the way he tells it: a few jolly anecdotes from his own youth; a silly trivia game and the physical finale involving a stuffed toy cat on a string all help fill the sparse audience with a certain warm glow, even at this late stage in a gruelling festival.
Monahan would be an ideal talking head on one of those '100 Best' schedule-hogging compilation shows lively, straightforward and effortlessly good-humoured as he his. But for a full-length show to remember, there needs to be more than simple charm.
I had a fantastic time at this show. Warmth, wit and a really terrific finale. Hadn't seen him before, but I'll go out of my way to do so again.
A totally fun show! Patrick has finally learnt the art of delivering a show that is material heavy, a dramatic tranformation that keeps the audience captivated, and willing to hear the next story.
