Get ready to laugh the night away with this award-winning Canadian comedian. Having traveled the world for over three decades as a master of improvisation and an accomplished impressionist who delights in the absurd, this show is not to be missed by anyone who wants a good laugh!

Join me, Seán Cullen, for “Cocktail Hour: an evening of sophisticated silliness with Seán Cullen” an evening of silliness and music. I’ll be performing with my comedy and musician friends. Simply funny and entertaining. During the pandemic I hosted an online version of this show Colin Hay, Jennifer Robertson, Chris Locke, Hawksley Workman, Matt O’Brien, Julia Hladkowicz, Danko Jones, Michael Landsberg, Ryan Wilner, Jeff Dye and many many more.

You’ll recognize me from Just for Laughs, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and The Debaters – just to name just a few of my appearances in Canada.

Internationally, you’ll know me from appearances on The Ellen Show, Workin’ Moms, and NBC’s Last Comic Standing, as well as numerous voice-over roles.

It’s sophisticated silliness at its finest. What are you waiting for?

Joan SmithJoan Smith, she of “towering pipes and a remarkable dirty guitar tone” (torontomusicreviews.com), has teamed with Tom Juhas to form the Jane Does – a female fronted dance rock machine with cutting vocals that amp up to the edge of sanity, pulsing rock beats and relentless guitars reminiscent of Queens of the Stone Age and early PJ Harvey.

Smith spent the past decade fronting guitar/organ rock trio Little Foot Long Foot – playing any stage willing to handle their volume and achieving familiarity with song placements in shows like Orange is the New Black.
