I first came across comedian Sean McLoughlin when he was supporting Katherine Ryan on her tour Glam Role Model in 2015. The clever and brave comic played fearlessly to the crowd. He had a lot to get across and his material that night about erectile dysfunction was priceless and utterly hilarious.
A year later I saw him perform a complete set at Always Be Comedy in London. He appeared uneasy and grumpy revealing his desolation on stage. McLoughlin had the abilities to challenge multifaceted feelings and themes through stories and jokes, and still be daft when he wanted to be. He offered a no-holds barred, truthful, laid-back look at the world and his own place in it, delivered with essence and black humour.
McLoughlin was the opening act at the first Always Be Comedy night of the year that I saw in January 2018. In his twenty-minute set he delivered many great self-withering put downs and punchlines at a high success rate goading the audience into helpless laughter. McLoughlin is a very clever, funny comedian who made me laugh a lot.
The comic was the first act on a bill at Always Be Comedy Online that I watched in November 2020. Having to encounter a second lockdown was the basis of his set as he broadcast from his room from an old PC after his Wi-fi connection had gone.
He also guested at Return of The Craic Online Comedy Club that I watched in February 2021. The great thing watching the comedian was his ability to look lost and bewildered in escalating situations that make his hilarious stories.
McLoughlin appeared at the last minute for Always Be Comedy in October 2021 and for a full tour preview in March 2022. He was wonderful to watch live as he gave the impression that he tried to create comedy from virtually nothing and yet the clever comedian knew exactly what he was doing. Visually and verbally, he reduced the audience to tears. The performances were wildly funny and proved what a great comedian he is.
He was a great guest for the Top-Secret Stand-Up Comedy Early Show that I watched in May 2023. Really happy fun bantering with the audience, delivering wonderfully constructed funny routines based on his relationship and living together, he built the laughter during a wonderful twenty-minute set.
McLoughlin is a master comedian to watch, gain insight and laugh at uproariously.
