Stand-up Hanoi presents Sean Finnerty (Ireland) @ Standing Bar

Sean Finnerty is coming to Hanoi for one night only, performing at Standing Bar on Thursday 8 August. Don't. Miss. It!

After 21 years of growing up in Longford, Ireland, Sean decided to move stateside where a series of mature decisions that he failed to make led him to stand-up comedy. Earlier this year he was rewarded for his efforts as he became the first ever Irish comedian to perform on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon!

Spending his first number of years in comedy based out of Orlando, Sean was selected for Comedy Central’s Up Next competition (2013) and was a semi finalist in Florida’s Funniest Comedian (2014) resulting in him opening for WWE hall-of-famer Mick Foley.

A breakout year in 2015 saw Sean make his television debut as co-host of Season 9 of Fireball Run on Amazon Prime as well as being to selected to perform at the Boston Comedy Festival.

In 2016 Sean moved to New York where he quickly became known as one to watch, performing at famous venues such as The Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, Carolines on Broadway, The Stand and The Friars Club. Recently he has also performed at festivals including Laugh Your Asheville Off (2017) Edinburgh Fringe (2018) and Electric Picnic (2018), along with making it to the semi-finals of the nationwide talent search Stand-up NBC.

A keen eye for detail, Sean has also developed a reputation as a Roaster and is currently the #1 ranked roast comic in New York City.
