Show Me The Funny: Meet the three finalists!

Jason Manford (Show Me The Funny)

The final of Show Me The Funny kicks off at 9PM tonight on ITV1, with the three remaining comedians going head to head in a public vote. Tiffany Stevenson, Dan Mitchell and Patrick Monahan will each be playing a set to a crowded Hammersmith Apollo, before it's left to viewers to decide their fate.

Judges Kate Copstick and Alan Davies will be on hand as always, as will the guest judges from the series gone past.

Up for grabs is a £100,000 cash prize, a headlining stand up tour and a DVD out this Christmas.

Here are the comedians that are still standing...

Dan Mitchell (Show Me The Funny)

Dan Mitchell
Age: 34

Charity worked Dan is a former Undertaker who sites “boredom” as the reason for his move into stand-up five years ago. Dan has since performed over 500 gigs after starting in small pubs in the rural Welsh countryside. He has performed at a variety of places from the Green Man Festival where he was critically acclaimed, to being booed off stage in a strip joint.

Dan says: “What do I love about stand-up? When it’s going well, the buzz is unlike anything else. When it fails, of course, you blame the audience!”

Patrick Monahan

Patrick Monahan
Age: 35

Patrick may well be the only stand-up in the world of Irish-Iranian decent, but brought up on Teeside. He sees his background as a real bonus and credits talking about it as his breakthrough. Patrick has headlined the prestigious Comedy Store and performed around the world from the west of Ireland to Dubai.

Pat says: “There are no other Irish-Iranian comedians with a northern upbringing on the circuit – I’m all three rolled into one!”

Tiffany Stevenson

Tiffany Stevenson
Age: 33

Tiff’s route to stand up has been quite diverse, but since taking the mic in 2006, where she initially performed as her WAG character ‘Savannah Dior’ she has been ahead of the curve. Tiffany also runs and co-hosts “Old Rope”, a weekly new material night with the award winning Phil Nichol at The Phoenix in London.

Tiffany says: “All comedians love trying out new material. There is nothing more satisfying than performing something and getting an instant response. I hope I can rise to the challenge.”
