Welcome to SEANN WALSH WORLD a brand new 13-part comedy series premiering on Comedy Central this June and starring award-winning stand-up comedian and actor Seann Walsh.
Meet Seann, a young, snappily dressed joker who uses everything from sketches to viral hits to illustrate his world.
Need a handy lesson in the rules of ‘Banter’? Or could your dirty talk do with a brush up? Then look no further as Seann muses and riffs on the weird and wonderful exploits thrown up by the colourful characters residing on the World Wide Web.
From seafaring shenanigans involving near misses with sharks, to super scrimpers fishing flowery anniversary gifts out of bins, Seann mines the digital landscape for the chance to share comedy gold with a live studio audience.
Complimenting the cliptastic mayhem each episode features original sketches and never before seen stand-up routines written and performed by Seann. Throughout the show viewers are granted access to the inner workings of a man who thinks Sir David Attenborough should give starving penguins a Twix from the catering van, rather than commenting on the circle of life…
Speaking about his new venture Seann said:
“We all like to share a funny video clip with our friends when the internet gifts us someone’s truly bonkers exploits and Comedy Central has given me the freedom to share some cracking clips, sketches and stand-up with the people of Britain. Now everyone will have the chance to see a man spit a banana into his dog’s mouth!”
Jill Offman, MD Comedy Central UK and SVP International Content, who greenlit the project commented: “Seann Walsh is a perfect fit for Comedy Central. We are sure our audience will love his warmth, energy and irreverent humour and have high hopes for this brand new show”.
An award-winning stand-up comedian (Best Newcomer Chortle Comedy Awards 2009), Seann’s recent TV appearances include: Stand Up For The Week (Channel 4) Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012, Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Mock The Week (BBC2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1).
