Seann Walsh – The Lie-In King (Off The Kerb Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Seann Walsh does not get an easy ride from his sell-out audience – they’re in vocal, if friendly, mood – but he deals with it with the energy, wit and aplomb that characterise the rest of his set. From the everyday yoga positions to the only time he moves quickly, Walsh’s material is sharp and funny and his timing is spot on. Tightly scripted and razor sharp, Walsh’s set keeps the laughs coming thick and fast, never letting the audience pause for breath and segueing smoothly from one apparently unconnected topic to another. The only misstep is the ending, which feels a little padded and weak. Otherwise this is a show packed to the brim with high octane laughs.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug (not 12), 9.20pm.
