North-East born comedian and ‘Hebburn’ sitcom star, Seymour Mace, returns to Newcastle this month with his stand-up comedy show.
Mace has enjoyed many achievements in his career to-date, including becoming the first comedian in residence at Woodhorn Museum in Northumberland, with his work with the historical culture site resulting in Mace picking up a Journal Culture Award and a prize at the Museums and Heritage Awards for Excellence in 2015.
Having begun life in the entertainment industry as a clown in the 1990’s, Seymour Mace’s career has grown considerably, including being a finalist at Edinburgh Fringe Festivals ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ in 2001.
The comedian also previously hosted Newcastle’s monthly ‘Giggle Beats Comedy Pub Quiz’ and, in 2014, he took part in the ‘Laughing For a Change’ project to raise mental health awareness.
In his 15-year career, Mace has also branched out into TV comedy, including playing Steve and his twin brother in BBC Sitcom ‘Ideal’ from 2005 till 2010.
He also starred in 2009 horror comedy, ‘Zombie Women of Satan’, and in 2013 he played music producer Eric in the second series of the popular North-East based sitcom, ‘Hebburn’.
Seymour has even tried his hand at films, including appearing in offbeat comedy film ‘What happened after Macbeth’.
Throughout the years, Mace has played 12-shows in Edinburgh to-date and in 2015 he was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award. His show entitled ‘Niche As’ also became one of only eight shows to be nominated for the Fosters Comedy Award.
