Jenna Zine Presents: Sean Jordan & Friends Holiday Show! at The Secret Society!
Beloved Portland comedian Sean Jordan has relocated to Los Angeles, but he’s still number one in our hearts! Come kick off the holiday season, as we welcome Sean back for a brief visit to celebrate with his very funny friends for a great night of comedy. One night only – don’t miss it!
It’s a common theory that comedians are all messed up in the head. Maybe they had a terrible childhood, maybe they have social anxiety disorder, or maybe they just hate everything and stand up is the only outlet for them to feel normal. Not Sean, he had a great childhood and just loves being in front of people. Growing up wasn’t perfect of course, but who has a “perfect” childhood anyway. Sean grew up in a single parent household surrounded by midwestern women. Not having a dad around just meant he didn’t turn into a dickhead when he got older, instead he was just super funny all the time trying to make people laugh starting when he proposed to his 2nd grade teacher in front of the entire class on Valentines Day.
Sean has been a stand up comedian for almost a decade now, starting in Sioux Falls SD but now living in Portland OR. Moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2009 from the Midwest, Sean has become a staple in the Portland comedy scene. He produces and performs in the #1 independent showcase in Portland, Funny Over Everything. In 2014 the Sean was named the funniest person in Portland by the Willamette Week magazine.
He was also a finalist in the 2014 Portland’s Funniest Person contest at Helium Comedy Club, The Tacoma Comedy contest and The Wenatchee Comedy Festival. Comedy Central named Sean as one of their comics to watch, Splitsider also named Sean as one of the comics to watch in 2015. Sean has become a nationally touring comic having traveled all over doing stand up working some of the best clubs in the country including ACME Comedy Club in Minneapolis, Helium Comedy Club in Portland, Zanies in Nashville and Chicago and the Dallas Improv to name a few. Sean has participated in some of the best comedy festivals in the country, namely The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, The Bumbershoot Comedy and Arts Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, Cromfest and the High Plains Comedy Festival. If you’re a podcast fan then you may have heard him on the Crabfeast, Professor Blastoff, Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, The Benson Interruption or as a regular guest on Doug Benson’s poscast Doug Loves Movies. You also may have heard Sean on NPR or the nationally played radio program LiveWire Radio.
It sounds cliche, but it’s true, life is short so go out and enjoy it. If you made it this far in the bio then it means you’re interested in comedy in general so just go out and enjoy some. If you feel so inclined, go over the “shows” tab and find the next place you can see Sean!
