Sam began performing standup comedy at the famous (at the time) Harold Park Hotel when he was 16, getting his first paid gig at 17. He has since been runner-up in the Raw Comedy National Final, nominated for Best Emerging Comic at the Adelaide Fringe, and for both Best Newcomer and the Piece of Wood Awards at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Luckily, he’s never actually won anything, so this mild success never went to his head.
He has supported the likes of Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, and Arj Barker amongst others, and appeared often on TV, radio and in comedy festival shows around the country.
Sam’s television writing credits include the popular children’s sketch show ‘You’re Skitting Me’, as well as ‘The Big Bite’, ‘The Mansion’ and ‘The Ronnie Johns Half Hour’. He was a contributing writer and performer on ‘Stand-up! Australia’, and a staff writer on ‘Rove’.
“****- undeniably funny.’”
“He makes it easy to laugh… an immensely likeable boyishness.”
“His jokes are like ninjas quietly sneaking up on you”
Sean Woodland tells jokes and makes people laugh.
He burst onto the Sydney Comedy scene in formidable style in 2011 and won the ‘Quest for the Best’ and the Crows Nest Hotel comedy competition in the same year. A genuine, authentic character, rich in experiences, Sean is more passionate about his pursuit of comic excellence than he ever was about being a public servant or sex toy salesman.
With a joke per minute rate rarely seen on a stage, Sean Woodland’s rapid-fire barrage of genuine funnies recounts truths from his life while cleverly dismantling shallow rituals, vacuousness, tokenism, popular culture and self-help mumbo-jumbo.
An awesome comedian keeping the energy flowing with a barrage of comedy gold.
