Comedy This Week: Seann Walsh and Stewart Lee
- 2013 Fosters Comedy Award nominee and comedy’s fastest rising star, Seann Walsh, returns to the road this autumn with an all-new highly anticipated live show, to show the world that he is the Lie-In King.
Fresh from wowing audiences at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe, he will be performing at The Nuffield on Saturday.
Star of Channel 4’s Stand Up For The Week, BBC1’s Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow and Dave’s Argumental, Seann is a natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.
Within two years of his first comedy performance, Seann was the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Other accolades followed shortly, including: Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.
Seann Walsh currently stars in his very own brand new television series Seann Walsh World on Comedy Central.
The show mixes stand-up comedy with viral Internet video clips as Seann delves into his life as a young, single 26-year-old comedian.
Later this year, Seann will also star in Comedy Central’s new original sitcom, Big Bad World.
- STEWART Lee presents Much A-Stew About Nothing at The Mayflower on Sunday.
Following the sell-out Carpet Remnant World, the acclaimed writer and comedian presents a mixed stew of unrelated ideas in preparation for his 2014 TV series.
See it live so you can begin the backlash ahead of transmission.
What can a sexless middle aged married man, whose life now consists mainly of watching Scooby Doo cartoons with a four year old boy, possibly find to write comedy about?
Formerly stand-up’s youthful iconoclast, Lee now gawps blankly at News 24 as Britain burns down around him, and blinks weirdly at the vast wayside retail outlets during endless journeys to and from increasingly indistinct provincial theatres.
Once he lived on the pleasure planet. Now he is trapped in Carpet Remnant World. And so are you.
