Profile

Se’n Cullen has been touring and performing as a comedian for the past 20 years. There are many things that make him unique in the comedy world. He combines stream of consciousness improv with uncanny mimicry and broad musical talents to create a style that is his and his alone.

As a member of Corky and The Juice Pigs, a seminal group on the Canadian scene that has influenced comedy performers as far away as Australia and the UK, Se’n burst onto the scene in 1988. Over the next ten years, The Pigs toured the world becoming fixtures of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, winning awards at the Edinburgh Fringe and performing at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal eight times. The group was also featured on Fox’s MAD TV and released two wide-selling comedy albums.

In 1998, after eleven years in the group, Se’n struck out on his own, defining his own solo style accompanied by the musical talents of musician Dylan Goodhue.

Se’n has been featured in Time Magazine in the USA as the vanguard of comedy’s next generation. He has appeared on shows such as The Ellen Show with Ellen Degeneres, multiple times on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Late Show on CBS. Se’n has many comedy specials under his belt including Comedy Central Presents… Se’n Cullen, CTV/ The Comedy Network’s Gemini nominated Se’n Cullen’s Wood, Cheese & Children!, CBC’s COMICS! and his own special, SEAN CULLEN’s Home for Christmas.

Se’n is a three time Gemini Award winner: in 2001 for his gala performance at Just for Laughs and in 2003 for hosting the 17th Annual Gemini Awards, and in 2006 for hosting What Were They Thinking. In Canada you have seen him on CBC’s Air Farce, TMN’s Slings & Arrows, CBC’s The Se’n Cullen Show and he is the voice of Canuckles on CBC’s Maple Shorts. Se’n has also appeared in the critically acclaimed features Where the Truth Lies by Atom Egoyan, Saint Ralph, and Phil The Alien where he won a Canadian Comedy Award for best Male Performance in a Film.

In 2004 Se’n starred as Max Bialystock in a successful run in the Canadian production of Mel Brooks’ The Producers and toured parts of Canada and the U.S. with the Barenaked Ladies.

Most recently, Se’n’s debut novel for young adults entitled Hamish X and the Cheese Pirates is now available in bookstores across Canada as well as online at Amazon.ca. Se’n can also be seen in the children’s series Monster Warriors on YTV. This past summer Se’n’s one hour radio show entitled Simply Se’n returned for its second season on CBC Radio 1.

Se’n has released a CD entitled Se’n Cullen Live!. It is a must listen to for anyone who enjoys Barenaked Ladies, Eddie Izzard, spot on impersonations and absurd/surreal comedy.
