Sean Hughes

In 1987, Sean started doing stand-up comedy in London clubs. He became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious Perrier Award for ‘A One Night Stand With Sean Hughes’ at the Edinburgh Festival in 1990. The show also played to crowds in London and throughout the UK, Los Angeles, Montreal, Toronto and toured Australia for the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 1991.

Along with Owen O’Neil he was awarded a Fringe First when he returned to Edinburgh in 1999 with the short plays, ‘Dehydrated’ and ‘Travellin’ Light’. Sean then launched his successful TV career with the critically acclaimed 7 part sitcom ‘Sean’s Show’ for Channel 4, which Sean both wrote and starred in and hot on the footsteps of the first, a second series followed shortly after.

As well as his comic writing, Sean has written two collections of prose and poetry and the first, ‘Sean’s Book’sold over 40,000 copies. Sean has also written two critically acclaimed novels ‘The Detainees’ and ‘It’s What He Would Have Wanted’.

His no-holds-barred, quick-fire wit shapes each performance into a one-off, unique experience for his audience.

Along with ‘Sean’s Show’, Sean is best-known to TV audiences for his long-running stint as team captain on the daddy of all panel shows ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and also acclaimed drama The Last Detective … not forgetting starring as Eileen Grimshaw’s love interest, Pat, in Coronation Street.

Despite a nine-year break from performing stand-up, he was recently voted No. 40 in Channel 4′s ‘World’s 100 Greatest Comedians’ poll. His equally wide-ranging film and theatre career includes starring roles in the film adaptation of Spike Milligan’s Puckoon and, with Sienna Miller on the West End stage, in As You Like It.
