'Man 1, Bank 0' is Patrick Combs' amazing-but-true story of how he deposited a $95,000 junk-mail cheque into his own bank account and about what happens after his bank cashes the ridiculously large sum of money into his personal bank account. This outrageously funny and dramatic comedy quickly becomes a staggering David V's Goliath-like real-life adventure. Never performed in Ireland before, the show was quickly a 'smash hit' in North America & New Zealand performing to sold out shows in New York; Montreal; Los Angeles; San Francisco ("Best of Fest” & "Best Solo Comedy”); Auckland; HBO's 2004 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival & "Critic's Choice” at the Spoleto Festival to name a few - Critically acclaimed by Time Out, New York as "Incredulous... gleeful...” - "Star Power”, Variety Magazine, this must-see one-man comedy has storytelling down to a fine art after already wowing audiences across the globe.
So what does happens after the bank cashes the ridiculous check? To name only a few things: angry banking officers threaten Combs with "jail time”, "death” and much more; the incident extracts America's leading authority on banking out of retirement; 'Man 1, Bank 0' explains the astonishing legal twists which ensued after the incident; and worldwide media coverage (including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Good Morning America and calls from Letterman & Leno).
