Sean Cullen has been touring and performing as a comedian for the past 20 years. There are many things that make him unique in the comedy world. He combines stream of consciousness improv with uncanny mimicry and broad musical talents to create a style that is his and his alone.
As a member of Corky and The Juice Pigs, a seminal group on the Canadian scene that has influenced comedy performers as far away as Australia and the UK, Seán burst onto the scene in 1988. Over the next ten years, The Pigs toured the world becoming fixtures of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, winning awards at the Edinburgh Fringe and performing at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal eight times. The group was also featured on Fox’s MAD TV and released two wide-selling comedy albums.
Seán has been featured in Time Magazine in the USA as the vanguard of comedy’s next generation. He has appeared on shows such as The Ellen Show with Ellen Degeneres, multiple times on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late Show on CBS. Seán has many comedy specials under his belt including Comedy Central Presents… Seán Cullen, CTV/ The Comedy Network’s Gemini nominated Seán Cullen’s Wood, Cheese & Children!, CBC’s COMICS! and his own special, SEAN CULLEN’s Home for Christmas.
Seán is a two time Gemini Award winner: in 2001 for his gala performance at Just for Laughs and in 2003 for hosting the 17th Annual Gemini Awards. In Canada you have seen him on CBC’s Air Farce, TMN’s Slings & Arrows, CBC’s The Seán Cullen Show and he is the voice of Canuckles on CBC’s Maple Shorts.
