John was born as John Bradley-West in 1988. Brought up in Wythenshawe, South Manchester, he attended St Paul's High School and Loreto College, Hulme before going on to Manchester Metropolitan University from where he graduated in 2010 with a B.A. degree in acting. It was via his college website that he obtained his first big television role in the epic fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' though he has since moved nearer home to appear in 'Shameless'. He is also an accomplished drummer and has experience in stand up comedy.
Charming and charismatic, a natural motor-mouth, Brighton’s Seann Walsh is the most frighteningly precocious talent to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in ages.
Within two years of his first comedy performance in 2007, Seann became the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Shortly after, other accolades included Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.
Walsh’s assured delivery and self deprecating silliness would enable him to star on BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and BBC2’s Mock The Week and has now seen him listed as one of DAVE’s top 10 stand-ups to catch in 2011.
Seann’s total sell-out debut solo Edinburgh Fringe Show, I Would Happily Punch Myself In The Face received rave reviews.
