Described as a cross between Bill Hicks and Mark Thomas, Matt Panesh brings his double bill of critical acclaimed comedy to Paisley Arts Centre.

Act 1 – Welcome… to Afghanistan

The first half of the show is a one-man comedy play telling the story of the first Afghan wars in the 1840s.

Monkey Poet leaps from character to character, from cynical Generals to Indian beggars, and all walks of life in between. A Stage Must See show – Edinburgh Fringe.

Act 2 – Welcome… to the UK

The second half of the show is a selection of Panesh’s verse on the state of the UK today. Targets include the economy crisis, the BNP, the tabloid media, celebrity culture and whatever else is on his mind on the night.
Act 2 is satiric stand-up in rhyme. Likened to Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks, Mark Thomas & Billy Bragg this is not for the faint-hearted or dainty-eared!

Welcome is mixture of theatre, comedy and poetry from a very enthusiastic performer who has won 7 fringe awards for poetry including Best Poet at San Francisco Fringe two years running.
