The alternative stand-up Sean Turner has natural comedic instincts that lead him to areas most comics wouldn’t ever find themselves. Immensely original, fans of Reeves And Mortimer style effervescence are in for a real treat with this very special act.

The show brings silly impressions, audience interaction, off the wall jokes and stories. It will have a bit about dyslexia, colour-blindness and his other aliments as well.

Ever since the moment his mother popped a Catherine Cookson novel under his nose and he didn’t have a clue how to read it, life became a series of realisations for the young Mr Turner.
His parents then bought him a book with no words; instead it was filled with colours. Sean thought his book was broken as he could only see blobs where the pictures were meant to dwell.

Later a doctor informed him that his eyes were red and green colour blind and he was sensibly advised never to rewire a plug. He also has an underactive thyroid in his neck which explains why he always fell asleep at work and had a massive chin.

The show tackles all of these hurdles, in the only way this brilliantly odd ball comedian could. If you like something different then this is the show for you.

‘Hes is a different kind of act all together. Completely unpredictable and unbelievably funny’ Out Magazine
‘I couldn’t believe how much I laughed, honestly, I couldn't believe it!’ David Hadingham, Jesterval Comedy Festival
‘His enthusiasm for audience participation and cheeky twists was a highlight’ NARC Magazine
‘Sean pushes boundaries, he's not easy to pigeonhole. You don't know what you're going to get. That's how it should be. He's a proper alternative comedian.’ Simon Donald off the Viz
