Hello Pilgrim. I’m Sean McLoughlin, and I am a 29 year-old comedian.
I spent many years in the gutter of showbiz, but in the last couple years I have performed at Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Cat Laughs Festival in Kilkenny, The Vodafone Comedy Festival in Dublin, The Rotterdam International Comedy Festival and several shows in Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Switzerland and Belgium. I’ve also supported the likes of Ricky Gervais, Katherine Ryan and Doc Brown on tour, and made appearances on Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central and Comedy Central’s Live At The Comedy Store.
I’ve played the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for many years, and performed my debut hour-long show ‘Backbone’ there in 2013 and the follow-up ‘I Will Prevail’ in 2014. 2015’s show was called ‘Whatever It Takes’ which had another full run in Edinburgh and then toured around the country including a stint at the Soho Theatre in London. Recordings of the last two can be found on the ‘recordings’ page of this site.
My latest show ‘Kamikaze’ is hitting the road in 2017 having had an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe last year. Tour dates on the homepage if you’re that way inclined.
