Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Fresh from opening for Ricky Gervais and Bill Burr on tour, Sean McLoughlin ('the best comedian you haven’t heard of yet' - Time Out) takes his acclaimed, smash hit show, 'Hail Mary', on the road.
The human race is at a crossroads: On one path lies the future, with its twitchy technology and mega-corporations who know us better than we know ourselves; On the other lies the past and all the conflict and mystery that entails. In the middle stands Sean, the unlikely everyman, trying to plot a course for both himself and mankind.
As well as providing tour support for Ricky Gervais’ record-breaking international Humanity tour, Sean was recently handpicked to open for Bill Burr at the Royal Albert Hall and for the legendary Doug Stanhope. He’s also made appearances on Stand-Up Central, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store and fronted a 5-part series for Viceland. His talents have landed him a Chortle Award nomination and a part in new Netlix sitcom After Life.
'An impassioned and uniquely brilliant talent.'
'The epitome of of the skilful stand-up.'
'McLoughlin’s jokes have a staggeringly high success rate.'
