Edinburgh Spotlight: Seann Walsh: After This One I'm Going Home

"“On a technical level, he’s superb” **** - The Telegraph

“Comic gold” – The Guardian

“One of comedy’s hottest properties...very talented, very funny” - Evening Standard

“He remains one of the most entertaining observational comics on the block” – The Independent

“Observational mastery” – The Scotsman

“Uproariously funny” – The Sunday Mirror

Fresh from appearing on the 2018 series of BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing and making his US TV debut on Conan, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and self-proclaimed ‘Lie-in King’ Seann Walsh is heading back on tour with his brand new show After This One, I’m Going Home this spring.

“Unquestionably the best observational comic of his generation” (The Guardian), this dishevelled, fiery, animated, fiercely idle, millennial man-child is currently one of the UK's finest live comedians.

Seann is a regular face on the small screen with appearances as team captain on Virtually Famous (Channel 4) and as a regular on Play To The Whistle (ITV). Other TV appearances include: 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).

Seann is currently appearing on ITV2’s newest stand-up and sketch show The Stand Up Sketch Show and will soon be appearing as host of new Netflix game-show Flinch, alongside Desiree Burch and Lloyd Griffith, which will debut over the coming months. Seann has quickly become a well-respected comedy actor, most recently co-starring in ITV1 sitcom Bad Move alongside Jack Dee. The hugely successful first series was broadcast in autumn 2017 and returned to ITV1 this September for a six episode series and an Christmas special, which was broadcast on Christmas Eve on ITV1.

Other acting credits include starring in Comedy Central’s sitcom Big Bad World, Sky’s silent comedy Three Kinds of Stupid and he made his feature film debut in 2018’s family comedy 2:hrs, released in August 2018. He has also turned his hand to writing with his own Sky Arts Comedy Shorts Series in 2016 and he wrote and produced his very own comedy web-series The Drunk.

Seann also hosts his weekly radio show and podcast News-Ish on Fubar Radio, alongside co-host Mark Simmons."
