Seann Walsh: Ying and Young

Fresh young stand-up Seann Walsh has appeared on Mock The Week and the Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow with his sharp observational comedy. This year, he’s in Edinburgh with a new one-man show. We caught up with Seann to find out more:

Tell us a little bit about your show – where’s it happening, what’s it about, why should people come to see it?

It’s in The Pleasance Courtyard at the Beneath at 8.15. The show is about how things are moving so quickly now and that at 25 I’m already saying “Back in my day..”, which is ridiculous!

I mean, what the hell am I meant to do with all these DVDs. The loft is full of all the VHS’s. I just got a laptop then the ipad came out! I remember I had to wait a year until a film came out. Now I go to the cinema, by the time I get home it’s on the tele.

What are you most looking forward to about coming back to Edinburgh?

Waking up on Arthur’s Seat and hoping I haven’t missed my own show

What’s been your favourite / funniest Edinburgh Fringe experience so far?

Last year I saw a man try to cross the road behind a bus but another bus pulled behind at the bus stop and got so close, it squashed him between the 2 pillars. I loved watching 12 scottish spectators trying to say “are you okay?” whilst pissing themselves.

If money was no object, what publicity stunt would you do to promote your show?

I’d get wedged between two buses in front of as much people as I could and try and say PLEASANCE BENEATH 8.15pm!

Who else are you planning or hoping to see?

I have a lot of good friends going up this year who I think are all brilliant. My personal list is Paul Mccaffrey, Henry Paker, Josh Widdicoombe, Carl Donnelly and Roisin Conaty. They’ve all paid me a tenner to say that though.

What do you have planned for after the Fringe?

I’ve been trying to get into recycling recently so I’m going to try and build a boat out of all the flyers that are chucked on the ground in Edinburgh and go away somewhere. Or I might just go to the pub in which case I’ll use the flyers for roach.

Sum up your show in three words for us:

fast sweaty and funny

You can catch Seann Walsh: Ying and Young from Aug 3-28 at the Pleasance Courtyard at 20:15. More details are on the Fringe website.
