HE GOT out of Brighton, survived that Strictly Come Dancing controversy, called a recent tour After This One, I'm Going Home, but Seann Walsh is nothing if not irrepressible.
Seann wanted to be a stand-up comedian from the age of 10. In his new show, which he brings to the Friday night KARLnival at the Róisín Dubh on Friday March 27 at 8pm, he will explore his journey from ambitious citizen of Brighton, to gathering a slew of TV credits and glowing reviews, to becoming a tabloid villain.
The show mixes some of his best loved routines with candid stories of his recent experiences. Expect his insightful observational comedy which highlights just how surreal everyday life and behaviour is when we actually stop to think about it.
Seann has won numerous awards, including the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and Chortle Best Newcomer (both in 2009 ). He has appeared on Mock The Week, Virtually Famous, and Family Guy; has also shows his acting talents in Monks, Three Kinds Of Stupid, and Jack Dee’s sitcom Bad Move; and hosted Seann Walsh World on Comedy Central, and last year co-hosted the game show Flinch on Netflix.
Support is from Justine Stafford, a contributor to popular Irish Youtube channel's TRY, and Stephen Ryan, a winner of Forbidden Fruit Comedy Competition. The MC is Karl Spain. Tickets are available in advance from Róisín Dubh; www.roisindubh.net; or [email protected], Shop Street; or at the door.
