The Lie-In King is back!

Seann Walsh has been booked to play Chorley Little Theatre on Wednesday, September 24.

His last show, The Lie-In King, was a 2013 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, and written as Seann was living alone and trying to sort out his life.

He returns with 28, his age, where he is living with his girlfriend – but now she is trying to sort him out.

Seann’s other recent TV appearances include: Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012 and 2013, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Celebrity Juice, Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Alan Carr: Chatty Man.

He was also a Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and a Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.

Seann, right, has also starred in his own series, Seann Walsh World (Comedy Central), and is becoming a well-respected comedy actor, performing in Big Bad World (Comedy Central) and BBC1’s new series Monks.

He’ll be supported by Romesh Ranganathan, who made his debut in 2010.

He was a finalist in the Latitude New Act Competition 2010, The So You Think You’re Funny? Final 2010, as well as being a runner-up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.

He’s supported one of his comedy heroes Ricky Gervais and was a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival debut, being nominated for the coveted Best Newcomer Award 2013.

Since then, he’s made a debut appearance on BBC2’s Mock The Week, BBC1’s Live At The Apollo, BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live 2013 and a regular slot on Channel 4’s weekly topical show Stand Up For The Week.

Tickets: £14.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Marine Hall’s Friday night Comedy Club is back on Friday, July 11.

Headlining the night are Tiff Stevenson and Steve Hall.

Tiff, a finalist on ITV1’s Show Me The Funny, is a stand-up comedian, actor and writer, known for her honest material and instantly like-able disposition.

She has appeared on programmes such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two).

As a solo live performer, Steve Hall is known for his snappy, smart and occasionally nasty comedy!

He has provided the support for Russell Howard on his sell-out national tours Adventures, Dingledodies and the 2009 arena tour Big Rooms and Belly Laughs.

In 2007, Steve performed as part of We Are Klang at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, where they were nominated for a Barry Award, before returning to Edinburgh for a four-night sell out run.

Support act for the night is Jack Barry – probably the only stand up on the circuit with a degree in Chinese!

After excitedly stumbling his way around the stand up and sketch circuits, performing at nights for CKP, Knock 2 Bag, the Invisible Dot and the BBC Comedy Tent in Edinburgh, Jack then went on to support James Acaster on the UK tours of Edinburgh Award-nominated shows Prompt and Lawnmower.

MC for the show is Suzy Bennett.

The show is on Friday, July 11 at 8pm. Tickets : £12.
