Never miss another 'Seann Walsh' show
Cambridge Comedy Festival: Jesterlarf Comedy Marquee: Seann Walsh, Kerry Godliman, Jake Lambert, Kevin McCarthy
"Live At The Apollo star and observational king-slacker Seann Walsh spots the absurdity in everything and converts it into a sidesplitting yarn. He’s been dubbed as the finest observational comic of his generation – come and see why! Support comes from Kerry Godliman with her straight talking and unpretentious razor sharp quick wit. This phenomenally talented and criminally underrated act is without a doubt one of the best comediennes in the country. She is also a fine actress having starred in Derek, Extra’s and Spoons and Jack Dee’s new comedy Bad Move. Plus rising and English Comedian of the Year finalist Jake Lambert with great story telling style full of hilarious tales of self-deprecation and social awkwardness. Compere for the show is the playful, daft and indescribable Kevin McCarthy!

Charming and charismatic, a natural motormouth, Brighton’s Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in ages.
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.
"Unquestionably the best observational comic of his generation" – The Guardian
"…Sharp, creative observational comedy from a precocious newcomer. See him now, before the stadium tour…" – Sunday Times
Seann Walsh was placed in Ents24's top 10 hardest-working comedians 2016.
