Since then he has forged his dream career, captivating audiences around Australia and abroad, with his ‘everyman’ appeal always a winning formula.

He cleverly dismantles meaningless language, shallow rituals, pretentiousness, tokenism and many other annoyances borne of popular culture.

“Thanks very much to all involved in the Stand Up Comedians team, for helping us organise our events. A very professional outfit to deal with and made the whole process very easy. 

Sean Woodland was fantastic to have in our remote construction camps. All 3 nights of entertainment was well received by the workforce and our client has very appreciative, with the morale boost for the camp residents. Sean was extremely funny, even making people fall of chairs with laughter!! 

We will be in touch for future events! Thanks once again.”



“We couldn’t have been more happy with Sean….everybody loved it, his casual, laid back, ‘every-day sort of guy’ won everyone over.  I’ve had nothing but fabulous feedback from the staff.  It was a great finish to a very busy term here at school…

 And apart from his act, what a lovely guy.  Please pass onto Sean my thanks.”

Kind regards,







“Sean was great- had no idea what to expect as no one had ever heard of him, but many of the guests actually said he was probably better than the other celebrity comedian as they had no pre-conceived expectations- you could actually put yourself in the same situation as many of his jokes!

The event was an overwhelming success. Thanks for all your help, and until next time!!”






“The event went very well. We had about 120 there in a good mood and Sean hit the mark with his routine.

Thanks very much for your help.”

“Sean hit the mark with the audience, There was lots of laughing from the audience and as an organisation we are really happy that we went with the idea of having a stand up  comedian.
Sean was able to engage and read the audience well  to ensure that  his act hit the mark :)
Sean did really well for an event that he probably has not been exposed to before We had 41  people from the community and 12 staff present
Great doing business with you!!”

“Thank you for arranging for Sean to perform at our annual golf day.
His performance was very, very good and helped turn a great day of golf in to a full day of fun.
Will happily use Sean again at some of our other functions.”

The event was a huge success and we can attribute a lot of that to Sean. He helped set the tone for the rest of the night. Everyone was in such a good mood after listening to him, making them feel even more generous when putting their hand in their pocket.

We are hosting another even next year and am hoping to get Sean back….people asked for him.”
