"Purple Cactus has provided a vital service to the Festival for four years. They have helped raised the profile of the Festival to the extent where it has been listed in the top 5 festivals in the UK by The Times. We couldn't be more grateful.” – Frome Festivall


Sean Collins

Sean honed his unique storytelling style over 20 years.  In 2000, his hard work and determination led to his receiving two prestigious Canadian Comedy Award nominations for ‘Best Male Stand Up’ & for his half-hour ‘Comic’s Comedy Special’ on CBC.

In 2002, CTV gave Sean his first hour-long television special as part of their ‘Comedy Now’ series and, building on this momentum, he performed a
gala set at the Just For Laughs Festival, Montreal in 2003.

With the desire to play to a more universal audience, Sean left Canada for the UK and, within the five years that Sean has resided in Britain, he has written and performed 3 highly successful Edinburgh Festival shows, receiving rare five-star reviews and one of only a few Best of Fest accolades.

Now a headline act firmly established on the UK circuit, Sean has several television credits to his name, including The World Stands Up Special on Comedy Central, The Comedy Store Television Show on Paramount for 2005, 2006 and 2008, and 2010, the second series of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow on BBC1.

Sean’s first tour in 2011 ‘Still On The Roadshow’, was performed with fellow comic Mike Gunn. Such was its success that Comedy Store Management are now behind the tour for 2012.

Sean performed at the Xerox congress in Lisbon and he exceeded all the objectives set, which was to entertain the 150 Xerox Partners after dinner. Sean really did his research and had a very professional persona, included local observations and good knowledge of Xerox. Very tough audience to entertain – did a brilliant job. 100% recommendation for a great event.
