Make sure to add Seann’s show to your schedule this Fringe.
Seann is a very animated and physical performer - imitations of friends, family, and especially of his girlfriend, are hysterically funny and so well executed. When spinning yarns he slips easily from one character to the next, telling the tale with gusto and great comic timing. He is a joy to watch.
A real highlight of the show was his bit on restaurant etiquette. His comments were so universally relatable that they couldn’t help but be funny. From the joys of getting a booth seat, to how everyone seems to order from the menu, to picking desserts, and finishing on to attempts at paying the bill, his commentary has the audience in hysterics. Using the stage to it’s full potential Seann manages to create the scene’s he's describing beautifully, greatly heightening the comedy. Other subject matter includes watching box sets with your significant other, stealing your friends tinder to ‘help’ set them up with someone, and the TV set of his youth. This is a well put together show that reflects modern society fantastically.
Seann’s performance, though mainly focussing on quite light subject matter, isn’t afraid to take a darker turn. His discussion of his anxiety is well performed, honest, insightful and, somehow, still very funny.
The show ends on a high with a musical piece entitled Goodbye to Youth, which is accompanied by a rather excellent slide show. Make sure to add Seann’s show to your schedule this Fringe.
