“One of the funniest comedians to come out of Ireland.” – Jimmy Fallon
After growing up in Longford, Ireland, SEAN FINNERTY moved Stateside where a series of mature decisions that he failed to make led him to stand-up comedy. Earlier this year he was rewarded for his efforts as he became the first ever Irish comedian to perform on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Cutting his comedic teeth in Orlando, Sean was selected for Comedy Central’s Up Next competition (2013) and was a semi finalist in Florida’s Funniest Comedian (2014) resulting in him opening for WWE hall-of-famer Mick Foley.
A breakout year in 2015 saw Sean make his television debut as co-host of Season 9 of Fireball Run on Amazon Prime. He was also selected to perform at the Boston Comedy Festival.
In 2016 Sean moved to New York where he quickly became known as one to watch, performing at some of the city’s best known venues including The Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, Carolines on Broadway, The Stand and The Friars Club.
He has recently brought his unique style of humour to the festival stage, performing at Laugh Your Asheville Off (2017), Edinburgh Fringe (2018) and Electric Picnic (2018). He also made it to the semi-finals of the nationwide talent search Stand-Up NBC.
Sean has developed a reputation as a roaster and is currently the number one ranked roast comic in New York City.
Sean’s appearance in Ho Chi Minh City will see him head a line-up that includes three of Vietnam’s best comics: Erick Garcia, Uy Le and JK Hobson.
