Gig Review:- 'Seann
SEANN Walsh is an observational
comedian, who has the brilliant ability to make the ordinary everyday things in
life seem really funny. Playing his '1 For The Road' tour in
Liverpool, on 16 November 2016, in the beautiful Concert Room of St Georges
Hall, Seann played to a small and informal audience.
The show opened with his support the very funny Mark Simmons, who liked to point
out the he was a one liner comedian, and every time someone came in late he
jokingly complained and said he would have to start all over again, which he did
to the amusement of everyone and eventually asking the audience to deliver the
After a brief 10 min interval, Seann, who is very animated in his performance,
starts by discussing how having reached the age of 31 he has now reached
adulthood and this means cutting down on everything that is good for you. He
reminisces about how good it feels to stand in front of the fridge eating and
how it is the only time in your life where you can eat a kit Kat and ham at the

spiralizer which makes courgettes into courgetti, this, he found not only
amusing but repulsive at the same time..
Eating out and having a "Nice Time" is something Seann does a lot
of these days and his take on the etiquette in restaurants especially the
novelty of booths was brilliant. His take on trying to get the waiters attention
to get the bill was something we can all relate to, however watching him play it
out on stage had the audience in an uproar. He packs a lot into 60 mins, from
DVD binge watching to an Alan Partridge impression, an hysterical take on
cheeseboards and the ?cafe culture? as he likes to call it.
Instead of coming back for an encore Seann stays on stage stating he wasn?t sure
if he left we would all still be here.
He ends the show on his post bed time anxieties that come back to haunt him as
he tries to sleep. Seann Walsh may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he has
proved without doubt that his relatable style of comedy is a huge hit with
