Charming and charismatic, a natural motor-mouth, Brighton’s Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in ages. He came to prominence on Strictly Come Dancing and he helped reinforce the so called “Strictly Curse!
Before he became a well known TV face he was a prolific stand up comedian.
Within two years of his first comedy performance in 2007, Seann became 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.l.
Walsh’s assured delivery and self deprecating silliness would then enable him to star on BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and BBC2’s Mock The Week and has now seen him listed as one of DAVE’s top 10 stand-ups to catch.
Described as “the best observational comedian of his generation” (The Guardian), this Edinburgh Award nominee’s last UK tour show ‘After This One, I’m Going Home’ ended with standing ovations around the country.Seann has starred in Netflix’s Flinch, Live At The Apollo, Tonight at The London Palladium, Celebrity Juice, The Stand Up Sketch Show, Virtually Famous, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Chatty Man and Stand Up Central.
2022 also saw Seann release his latest stand-up special Kiss where Seann recounts living through the centre of a media storm in his distinctively shambolic, intense and energetic trademark style, free to watch on Youtube.
Seann can also be heard on his regular podcast What’s Upset You Now, alongside co-host Paul McCaffrey, which sees them both moan for exactly 15 minutes about the things that infuriate everyone.
Not just one of the countries funniest stand-up comedians, Seann can be seen acting in Jack Dee’s ITV sitcom Bad Move where he plays audience favourite, Grizzo.
Seann also performs stand-up comedy in America and has appeared on the US chat show, Conan. His DVD, Seann To Be Wild, was recorded at Hammersmith Apollo.
