Seann Walsh wanted to be a stand-up comedian from the age of 10. In this show, he tells us how he got here, from growing up in Brighton to gathering a slew of TV credits and glowing reviews, to becoming a tabloid villain. This fresh show mixes some of his best loved routines with new candid stories from the last ten years.
Seann has many acting credits including Comedy Central’s sitcom Big Bad World, the lead role in Monks (BBC One), Three Kinds of Stupid (Sky) and Jack Dee’s sitcom Bad Move (ITV). He also wrote and starred in his own Sky short for Sky Arts which led to him producing, writing and starring in his own silent comedy web-series The Drunk. Seann is quickly on his way to becoming one of the UK’s best comedy character actors.
Other TV credits include Virtually Famous (Channel 4), Play To The Whistle (ITV), One For The Road (BBC 3), Live At The Apollo (BBC 2), The Jonathan Ross Show(ITV), Tonight at The London Palladium (ITV), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Alan Carr’s Chatty Man (Channel 4) and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central)
