Right now he’s getting more barracking than usual.

But prior to this week, comedian Seann Walsh’s best-ever heckle came in York, it turns out.

Seann is at the centre of a tabloid storm after he was pictured kissing his Strictly Come Dancing dance partner.

He apologised for making a mistake after being pictured in The Sun kissing married Katya Jones on a night out. But Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca Humphries tweeted that the relationship was over.


Seann has appeared in York a few times. But one particular night here has remained a cherished memory.

Asked by The Guardian for his funniest ever heckle, he said:

  • I was dying on my arse supporting Stephen K Amos in York.

    A woman strangely decided to bring her baby to the show. I asked: “Why have you brought a baby to a comedy show?”

    A man shouted: “Maybe she was having trouble getting it to sleep so she brought it out to see you.” Bang.
