Brighton-based newcomer Seann Walsh has won the Comedian Of The Year title at the Leicester Comedy Festival.
The comic, who was also runner-up in last year’s So You Think You're Funny? new act competition, was entered into the competition by the Komedia comedy club.
>The 23-year-old, who won £1,000, said: 'I'm delighted. After two years on the circuit that's the last new act competition I will ever have to enter.’
All finalists in the contest, sponsored by the Leicester Mercury, are nominated by clubs around the county.
Fergus Craig took the runner-up place, while Chris Stokes was placed third.
