Events at this Venue


After a triumphant debut in 2019, the Festival is bringing back its Comedy Club to the Rhu-bar Yurt! The Yurt will be located on the Bull Ring (WF1 1HB) in Wakefield City Centre. Doors will open at 7pm bringing some big names and bigger laughs, and running over two nights! The Rhu-Bar will also feature believe it or not - a bar!

Saturday’s side-splitting session features compere Karen Bayley, with Barbara Nice (a Britain’s Got Talent graduate), Sully O’Sullivan and headliner Patrick Monahan (winner of TV's Take the Mike in 2001 and Show Me the Funny in 2011).

Patrick Monahan is an Irish-Iranian comedian, who won the television competition series Take the Mike in 2001 and Show Me the Funny in 2011. He has performed regularly at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Monahan also holds the world record for "Longest Hug" at a time of 25 hours and 25 minutes, alongside fellow comedian Bob Slayer. They set this record at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013.
