Sean Patton is a comedian based in Los Angeles and New York, by way of New Orleans. He began doing stand-up in the Crescent City and has since performed in comedy clubs across the US and Canada as well as The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2011), Just for Laughs Chicago (2013), Just for Laughs Toronto (2013) and Just for Laughs Montreal (2008, 2010, 2012).

More recently, Sean’s television appearances have included @midnight (2014,2015) the second seasons of The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail (2015) and This Is Not Happening (2015, 2017), Showtime’s Live from SXSW (2017) and TruTV’s Comedy Knockout (2016, 2017). As for acting, he’s appeared on IFC’s Maron, Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer and TruTV’s Those who can’t.

There are many ways to describe Sean onstage but the New York Times did it best when they said ‘I’ve seen him perform more than a dozen sets, and he’s killed every time. He’s dynamite, even with ordinary material, turning standard Brooklyn-hipster jokes in a stomping, roaring tour de force, and elevating a bit about sex-performance anxiety into high-stakes comedy.’

2017 saw Sean make his much-anticipated Edinburgh Fringe debut, to sold out rooms and rapturous reviews. Stay tuned here to find out when he makes his way back across the Atlantic.
