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 an evening of sophisticated silliness and music. I’ll be performing with my comedy and musician friends. Simply funny and entertaining. 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?
Special comedic and musical guests to be announced soon!
