Man 1, Bank 0, an improbable true story for our times

Patrick Combs is an average guy. An average guy who, in 1995, decided on a whim to deposit one of those fake cheques so common in junk mail. Man 1, Bank 0 is Combs’ amazing-but-true story of how he deposited a $95,093.35 junk-mail cheque marked ‘non-negotiable’ into his own bank account and about what happens after his bank clears it. He’s rich – or is he? This outrageously funny and dramatic comedy that quickly becomes a staggering and funny David vs Goliath-like real-life adventure, returns to Ireland after a hugely successful tour in June 2011 and smash hit sold out shows in New York, Montreal, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

What happens after the bank cashes the ridiculous check? To name only a few things: angry banking officers threatening “jail time” and “death”; the nation’s leading authority on banking coming out of retirement; astonishing legal twists; and worldwide media coverage (including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Good Morning America, and calls from Letterman and Leno ).

Hear the full story on Sunday March 11 2012 at the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, where Patrick Combs, a natural born storyteller, will give you two hours of non-stop laughter, during an extraordinary and highly entertaining evening… and the beauty of it is that it’s all true. Tickets are available at €22.65 on as well as from The Royal Box Office on 0818 300 000. For further information check The Royal Theatre and Event Centre website on: or
