Middlesbrough comedian, and winner of Show Me the Funny, Patrick Monahan has been talking to us about his tour and about his North East routes.

Patrick is playing a 40-date tour across the country this spring, and you can find out more details of when and where he'll be playing here.

The Teesside comic visited Middlesbrough Football Club's training grounds earlier this week where he reminisced about this childhood memories growing up as an avid Boro fan - even offering his own personal advice on where he thought the team was going wrong in recent months.
