From Backstage.com, “Standup comic Sean Patton’s looks, voice, and wild energy have drawn comparisons to a young John Belushi, but this rising comedian’s style is all his own. Patton developed his standup on comedy stages in New York, Los Angeles, and across the country; was featured on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham”; and performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. He was featured as one of the “New Faces” at the 2008 Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. He currently co-hosts the weekly show “Comedy as a Second Language” with Chesley Calloway at Kabin Bar & Lounge in New York’s East Village. And in June, Patton recorded his standup comedy album at NerdMelt in L.A. The album will be released in September on A Special Thing Records.”
