After 21 years “growing up” in Longford, Ireland, Sean Finnerty decided to move stateside where a series of mature decisions that he failed to make led him to stand up comedy. Sean first cut his teeth in the Orlando comedy scene and quickly learned that his no holds barred humor and charming accent were well received (when people could actually understand what he was saying).
Selected for Comedy Central’s Up Next competition and as a semi-finalist in both the 2014 Florida’s Funniest Comedian Competition and the 2014 Charleston Comedy Festival, Sean has been seen at comedy clubs and festivals across the Southeast, including The Improv, the Orlando Fringe Festival, the Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, Gregory’s Comedy Club, Bonkerz Comedy Clubs, and at Gringos Locos Tacos at 3 in the morning after a night out. He has worked alongside touring headliners such as Dan Cummins, Mick Foley, Tommy Johnagin, Shane Mauss, Sean Patton, Rich Vos, Bobby Slayton, Mark Normand, Joe List, Maronzio Vance, Ben Kronberg, and Dustin Diamond.
Audiences find Sean to be thoroughly entertaining, whether he’s talking about his years as a bartender, his life as a naive Irish boy who moved to Harlem, or his roguish opinions on tattoos, American football, and the music of generations past. From country clubs to comedy clubs, dive bars to the festival circuit, crowds agree on one thing: Sean Finnerty is charming, likable, and absolutely hilarious!
