SEANN WALSH – “SAME AGAIN?”
TUESDAY 23rd APRIL 2020.
Doors Open 7.15 pm
Seann 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)

“It was 24th June 2016 and I found myself contemplating a supermarket meal deal. I only wanted a sandwich and I only needed a sandwich but given that I could get a snack and a drink for only 5p more it seemed financially irresponsible not to. I had spent so long pondering the EU Referendum result from the day before that I was now in a massive rush. The lad on the till scanned the first two items no problem but the third item he couldn’t get to scan at all. I thought this is going to be a nightmare – there was a queue building up and he looked like he was going to call the supervisor. Then to his credit, he tried to scan it one more time, it wouldn’t scan – so he went ‘bip’ himself and chucked it through. And it was at that moment I thought “Oh we’ll be alright as a country we will.
And we will be alright. Trust me. I’m not a politician.”
As seen on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo, Q.I. etc. – and repeated on Dave.
