A spokesman for the funnyman, who comes to Thornton Little Theatre on Saturday, said: “Monahan’s new stand-up show is about what life was like growing up in Britain during the 1990s 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.”
