Comedian Patrick Monahan last night won the ITV comedy talent show ‘Show Me The Funny’ and walked away with the £100,000 prize fund after he wowed a crowd of 3,000 and impressed top celebrity comedians with his act.
Patrick beat off stiff competition from fellow finalists Dan Mitchell and Tiffany Stevenson in the final audience vote-off.
He also won a nationwide tour and a will shortly be releasing a DVD release.
He told The Sun, “I’m genuinely shocked. I thought I was going out after the first week.”
The show’s host, Jason Manford, added, “He got some huge applause. He really stood out.”
Monahan, who was mentored on the show by Johnny Vegas, will start his 12-date tour with the runners-up on September 17. His DVD is due to go on general release in November.
