Sean Downie made his stand-up comedy debut on November 9 2008 at the grand old age of 37. Since that first traumatising experience he has been involved in the NZ international comedy festival in 2010 and 2011 and was nominated for most improved comedian at the 2010 NZ comedy guild awards. He is still not sure if this was a compliment but his peers have insisted it is! He hopes to continue this progress and that is why he has come to old Blighty.
“...Laughs come thick and fast as Downie takes up and shakes down topics in range from ESOL teaching to the UN.” – Theatreview
“Looks like the boy next door but there’s a dark side. Genuinely funny.” - Brendhan Lovegrove
