It’s a common theory that comedians are all messed up in the head. Maybe they had a terrible childhood, maybe they have social anxiety disorder, or maybe they just hate everything and stand up is the only outlet for them to feel normal. Not Sean. He had a great childhood and just loves being in front of people. Growing up wasn’t perfect of course, but who has a “perfect” childhood anyway. Sean grew up in a single parent household surrounded by midwestern women. Not having a dad around just meant he started shaving with an electric women’s leg shaver instead of a razor. Sean knew he wanted to be a comedian ever since the day he proposed to his 2nd grade teacher while she was reading a book the the class on Valentine’s Day. She said no with a big smile on her face.
Sean is a stand up comedian living in Los Angeles by way of South Dakota. He made it out even though South Dakota is the greatest state in the country! Sean spent his formative years in Portland OR where he was voted the funniest person in 2014. In 2015 he was named one of the “Comics to Watch” by Splitsider and in 2016 was awarded the same title by Comedy Central. Sean moved to Los Angeles just over a year ago where he waisted no time digging into the stand up scene performing on the top shows in the city while also maintaining a non stop touring schedule. If you’re a podcast fan then you’ve most likely heard Sean on the wildly popular podcast All Fantasy Everything, where he is a regular cohost. IndieWire magazine even crowned an episode: One of the 50 Best Podcast Episodes of 2017! How fun is that?! Sean is also a regular guest and fan favorite on Doug Benson’s podcast Doug Loves Movies. You may have also heard him on Professor Blastoff, The Crabfeast, Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, Put Your Hands Together and ARIYNBF (Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend). Sean is no stranger to the festival circuit doing festivals like this one all over the country. Those festivals include: Sketchfest in San Francisco, High Plains Comedy Festival in Denver and The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland to name a few. Sean was also a part time staff writer on Live Wire radio and just recently wrapped up as a member of a writing team for a Comedy Central pilot.
