|What a Ding Dang Do! Paddy’s On The Road To The Monaco
Dark Star: Paddy McGuinness of Max and Paddy fame is getting ready for his Monaco Ballroom debut.
Phoenix Nights star Paddy McGuinness (aka Paddy the doorman) is heading to the Monaco Ballroom, Hindley in the new year, as part of his first national solo tour, ‘The Dark Side’.
Paddy’s appearance at the revamped Monaco on Thursday 23rd February, presented by Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust in association with No Third Entertainments, follows two sell-out ‘Jumping on the Bandwagon’ tours with other stars of the Channel 4 hit show.
McGuinness is following in the footsteps of fellow Boltonian and Phoenix star Dave Spikey, who recently played two sell-out shows at the Monaco, at a venue that is fast becoming one of Greater Manchester’s capitals of comedy.
"I can’t wait to get the show on the road and I’m really looking forward to performing at the Monaco. I know Dave speaks really highly of the set up there and the atmosphere is supposed to be fantastic," says Paddy. "My show is all about having fun and getting the audience involved. People in Wigan and the surrounding areas, share a similar sense of humour as the people of Bolton, they know how to have a laugh at themselves, so it should be a great night."
"We can’t wait for the show to kick off. The Monaco is building a good reputation as a comedy venue and we are keen to enhance that. We are determined to provide people with quality entertainment at an affordable price," says Brian Yates, Leisure Venues Manager. "We will have more surprises on show at the Monaco over the next twelve months. I would urge people to buy their tickets early for this one – the Dave Spikey shows sold out within days."
Tickets, priced £15, will be on sale from Thursday 15th December from the Tourist Information Centre (opposite Wigan North Western train station), or by calling the booking number 01942 825677.
