SEANN WALSH NEWS
Bad Move is a new single camera scripted comedy for ITV by Open Mike Productions, written by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair.
Starring Jack Dee as Steve and Kerry Godliman as his wife Nicky, they play a married couple who are both on their second marriages and have decided that moving to the countryside from the city is the answer to all their dreams.
They've watched all the TV relocation shows and read the glossy lifestyle magazines and fell in love with the idea of ‘getting away from the rat race’.
Unfortunately living a simple existence in beautiful surroundings is not all it’s cracked up to be and Steve and Nicky soon find living in the countryside might not be for them after all. Especially when they discover that the house they've bought is situated in what locals refer to as 'The Dip' - a place where internet signals cannot reach, but floodwater most definitely can.
Thanks to unscrupulous estate agents, architects and builders squeezing more money out of the couple, they find themselves in a financial situation that means there is no going back.
The couple must put on a brave face as the last thing they want is for all their friends back in the city to be proven right after they all said it was a 'bad move'.
Bad Move was commissioned by Comedy Commissioning Editor Saskia Schuster and Head of Comedy Entertainment Peter Davey. It’s written by Jack Dee and Pete Sinclair, and also stars Seann Walsh as their rock star neighbour.
Seann Walsh and Mark Simmons' new show is available here on iPlayer today.
After selling out the Edinburgh Festival for the month of August and before embarking on a four month tour of the UK, Seann Walsh – along with his support act and driver Mark Simmons – are sent on a two-week tour of The Scottish Highlands.
Out of their cosy metrosexual London comfort zone, and pretty useless at life in general, we encounter the boys navigating their way from gig to gig with no tour manager, no internet, definitely no map reading skills, and absolutely no way of coping with the local wildlife.
From Inverness to the Shetlands we follow the duo as they navigate the highs and lows of being on tour in one of the most stunning but remotest parts of the UK.
Ents24 has revealed their list of the Hardest Working Artists of 2016 in the worlds of music and comedy, with Off The Kerb's Romesh Ranganathan coming out on top, and five more acts in the top ten.

Russell Kane comes in second, Mark Steel fourth, Seann Walsh seventh, Rob Beckett eighth, Rich Hall tenth and Shappi Khorsandi in eleventh.

Each Irish-themed offering was shot in a day, with almost all the comics featured drawing directly on dubious episodes from their lives.
A new episode of the comedy podcast presented by Seann (with assistance from one-liner merchant, also a fanatic cinema goer, Mark Simmons) has gone online today. Check it out below, or at audioBoom.
Each week, they'll go through the box office top five, and set each other the challenge of watching a film they think the other will hate.
They'll also talk to a guest comedian each week about their favourite and least favourite films.

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.
