Bend Comedy Presents:
– SEAN MCBRIDE – @seansmcbride
Comedian Sean McBride has been making people laugh his whole life. Upon graduating from college, Sean entered into the world of sport’s broadcasting, but much to his News Director’s chagrin, relaying that night’s scores was not nearly as important to him as was fitting his next joke into the sportscast. He soon realized he was in the wrong business, packed up his belongings and moved out to Los Angeles. After having lived in L.A. for over three years, Sean performs regularly in the Comedy Clubs around Southern California, and was a 2007 semi-finalist in the California Comedy Festival. He features for headliner Vic Dunlop on the road and he also recently appeared in the hilarious film “Dirty Jokes: The Movie” starring “The Unknown Comic” Murray Langston. Bringing a care-free and confident attitude to the stage, audiences are fast learning to love Sean. Always quick on the mic, he caters to whatever the crowd wants from him, and by the end, everyone always leaves with a smile on their face.
