Sean Jordan was recently voted Willamette Week’s Top 5 Funniest Comics, earning the number one slot. He is a stand up comedian originally from Sioux Falls, SD. Sean started into comedy after seeing only one stand up show. Getting his start in Sioux Falls after winning a local comedy contest, Sean became one of the house emcees at the comedy club in town. This gave Sean the chance to perform 3-4 times a week for years on end. That opportunity allowed Sean to grow as a comedian at a very rapid rate while at the same time giving him all the stage time needed to develop a healthy confidence while telling jokes.
After going as far as he could in Sioux Falls, Sean decided to move to Portland, OR. Quickly after moving he hopped right into the local scene advancing to the finals of the 2011 and 2012 Portland comedy competitions. Sean has also been a repeat guest on the popular podcast hosted by Doug Benson, Doug Loves Movies (DLM) Sean was also voted one of Funny or Die and Splashlife magazines “30 Under 30″ comedians to watch in 2011 and was featured onRooftopComedy.com.
National Lampoon’s Animal House is one the most successful comedies of all time, permanently defining the genre while simultaneously introducing John Belushi to the big screen.
