With a 25 year career stretching behind him, Sean Collins is a consummate pro who has crossed off most of the high-points of any A-list comedian. Live At the Apollo appearance? Tick. Hosted own solo, hour-long TV special? Check. “Best male stand up” award? Yep. Slot on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow? Of course! The Canadian comic has enjoyed continued success on both sides of the Atlantic. At home, he was invited to perform at Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs gala and won the top gong at the Canadian Comedy Awards. Collins has also stopped by Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up, and is a repeat guest on Paramount’s The Comedy Store TV show. Now resident in the UK, this extensive telly work also helped Collins bag a slot on The Real Variety Showcase. Known for a calm, steady, authoritative style, Collins lets the material speak for itself, without resorting to gimmicks or melodrama. “Sean Collins has been around the block a few times,” opines Chortle. “But in comedy, that’s an asset, not an insult.” You can say that again.
