Greenwich Comedy Festival: Mark Watson, David O'Doherty, Seann Walsh, Elis James
London's favourite comedy extravaganza is back to mark its fourth year at the stunning Old Royal Naval College. This year's festival jumps forward a few months to be part of the brand new Greenwich Summer Festival, an incredible forty-day festival combining Dance, Comedy, Music, Olympic Big Screen & Films, Theatre and so much more.
Last September saw some of the biggest names in comedy - including Tim Minchin, Micky Flanagan and Milton Jones - perform in the beautiful Big Top. This year's festival promises to not disappoint with another amazing line-up of the finest comedians heading south of the river to London's most unique comedy spectacular!

Star of Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week, BBC1's Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntryre's Comedy Roadshow, and Dave's Argumental, Seann is a charming and
charismatic natural born observational storyteller.
With confidence and material that belies his tender years Seann has already supported Stephen K Amos on his national tour and appeared on many TV shows. Charming, accessible and laugh out loud funny.

'Slick, funny observational comedy' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).

Cardiff-based stand-up comedian. A versatile comic actor whose character creation 'Rex' is a regular feature on Rhod Gilbert's BBC Radio Wales show, Elis' profile has been boosted with frequent appearances on BBC Radio One Wales, two critically acclaimed Edinburgh solo shows (The Most Cautious Little Boy in Wales – 2009, and Daytripper – 2010) plus numerous appearances on the UK comedy circuit including tour support act for Rhod Gilbert.
For Elis's 2009 Edinburgh Fringe offering, The Most Cautious Little Boy In Wales, he was subsequently selected for the Best Of The Edinburgh Fest Australian tour, an honour that has been bestowed in previous years to the likes of Dylan Moran, Ross Noble, Simon Pegg and Ardal O'Hanlon. He has also extensively toured Daytripper at the Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane comedy festivals.
'He hypnotises the audience into loving him. There's also a laugh every ten seconds or so which overall makes it a complete joy' (Time Out)
'An intensely likable performer, he manages to get the audience to share in the heat of his unlikely passion, and you'll be rooting for him throughout his various misadventures' (The Guardian).
