ONE OF comedy’s hottest properties Seann Walsh will be returning to Evesham next week to perform a date from his popular autumn UK tour. Observer reporter Nigel Slater spoke to him about the show and what the audience can expect this time round.
COMEDIAN Seann Walsh has said he is getting used to a more tidier life ahead of his Evesham show next week – and it is all thanks to his new girlfriend.
Walsh, who is now regarded as one of the country’s top comedians after several successes on stage and the small screen, will be the headline guest at the Evesham Arts Centre on Friday (December 12) when he performs his new UK tour stand-up
Now, at 28-years-old, his aptly named new show ’28’ centres around how he is adapted to changes in his lifestyle since living with his girlfriend and how she is trying to sort him out.
Walsh has managed to search deep inside himself to find the inner strength to get out of bed and all the way into his support act’s car.
Speaking to the Observer, he said: “I’ve moved in with my girlfriend a year ago and the show tells of things that I’ve picked up on since then.
“I’ve had to become a tidier human being. People say that its a compromise but it’s not, it’s just the man has to become tidier.
“It’s not like she (the girlfriend) has to get messier and meet you halfway and it’s not like you stop putting the towels up and she leaves the pizza box on top of the television.
“I think the show is good for couples as a lot of them have liked it and given great feedback, which has meant a lot to me.”
The team captain of E4 show ‘Virtually Famous’ made the headlines for somewhat embarrassing reasons earlier this year when he was forced to cancel a gig in Hertford after he mistakingly travelled to Hereford – 150 miles away.
But Walsh should have no such problems when coming to Evesham having performed at the town’s thriving Arts Centre before.
“I’ve been to Evesham twice before and both times the crowds have been really lovely,” he added. “I remember how nice they were when I walked on so hopefully I wont let them down.
“I’ve really enjoyed this stand-up tour and would say it has been my favourite one. It’s been relaxed and a lot of fun.”
The show also stars the energy and charm of rising star Marlon Davis who has been Walsh’s support act throughout the tour.
