Seann Walsh 28 at the Century Theatre...Must See

Seann Walsh 28 at the Century Theatre...Must See

Saturday 11th October 8:00 pm.

The Lie-In King is back!

Seann Walsh has managed to search deep inside himself to find the inner strength to get out of bed and all the way into his support act's car, parked just outside his flat JUST FOR YOU. Before you commend him too much for this act of heroism, be aware he will sleep in the car.

In his last show ’The Lie-In King’, 2013 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, Seann was living alone and trying to sort himself out.
At 28 years of age he returns with his aptly named new show ’28’ where he is now living with his girlfriend, and she is trying to sort him out.

Star of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’, BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’ and ‘Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow’, and Dave’s ‘Argumental’, Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.

Seann’s other recent TV appearances include: Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012 and 2013, Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Mock The Week (BBC2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Alan Carr: Chatty Man (Channel 4)

Within two years of his first comedy performance, Seann was the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Shortly after other accolades included; Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.

Seann Walsh has also starred in his own series ‘Seann Walsh World’ (Comedy Central) and is quickly becoming a well-respected comedy actor performing in ‘Big Bad World’ (Comedy Central) and BBC1’s new series ‘Monks’.
