Comedian, Writer

Sean Woodland began performing stand-up comedy at age 40. Since then he has forged his dream career, captivating audiences around Australia and abroad with his ‘everyman’ appeal, always a winning formula.

Sean’s material is endearingly relevant as he tells comical truths from his own varied experiences whilst also drawing on a barrage of observational funnies that are befitting of his irreverent and curious persona.

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

With a joke per minute rate rarely seen on a stage, Sean Woodland is a comic that will stay with you for a while. He is one of the most sort after club and corporate performers in Australia and is not to be missed.

Not limited to the stage Sean performs in sketch comedy, is a freelance writer and author, having numerous satirical pieces published in Australian magazines and newspapers.
“ Has more than the average number of laughs up his sleeve…Do Woodland and yourself a favour and get along.” The Adelaide Advertiser

“His understated punchlines and observations will resonate for a long time” RipitUp

Tim Sheens on Sean – “He made Wayne Bennett piss himself the entire show and that’s bloody hard to do”

Sean Woodland tells jokes that makes people laugh.

“Hi Mark,
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for organising Sean to perform at our “Night out from the Drought” event last Friday.  The night was an enormous success with approximately 340 people in attendance.  Everyone seemed to have a wonderful night and I’m sure it lifted spirits for at least a little while.
Sean was absolutely wonderful and we had many comments that they really enjoyed his performance and I could see lots of smiles and laughing in the crowd.  On a personal note Sean was a joy to work with and was really easy to get along with. He adapted his performance to our mixed crowd so that everyone got something out of it.  He also come along for the whole night and met and chatted to quite a few of our clients which was great.  I couldn’t recommend Sean more highly.

Thank you again for organising.”

The night was a huge success, thank you for asking.

I can’t recommend him enough!

“Hi Mark,
I hope you had a great weekend.
You will be pleased (although not at all surprised) to hear that Sean’s show was great. We all enjoyed his performance and everyone I spoke to during the course of the night commented on how much they enjoyed him (although given the laughter it was very obvious they did).  To top it off he’s a really nice guy and both Paul and I felt comfortable with Sean immediately. I hope the feeling was mutual.
All the best and I’ll be in touch next time I need a comedian. Maybe my 60th !!”
Cheers and thanks again, Pat

“Hey mate,
You beat me to it. Was about to send you a quick email. It was an absolute blast and loved each of the comedians. They (Sean Woodland was the MC) were really pleasant to work with, and the most impressive part for me, was that they all hung around right to the end and enjoyed the night with us.
Please pass on my thanks to each of them, and already looking forward to 2020.”

“Hi Mark,
In the most sincere and genuine way I could possibly say this; Sean was FANTASTIC!
He was not only hilarious, and had the audience in stitches, but he was so down to earth and just a generally awesome guy!
On all accounts he exceeded expectations and put smiles and laughs on the faces of everyone in attendance. We have not had one bad review, only inquiries about where they can hire him also. It is a credit to him and his talent, and we could not recommend him enough to each and every person looking for an incredible laugh!
We cannot thank him enough for elevating the mood from an already positive high, to well beyond incredible.Without hesitation, I can honestly say we will be using Sean’s services again.  Thank you so very much for recommending him to us!
Kind Regards,

“Hey Mark – Sean was great! He was sensational. Great to deal with, super nice bloke, and …. funny as F#%K! And… party everyone raved about him to me telling me how great they thought he was! So a great night was had by all!!!

Must say though – a big sincere thankyou to you for making it all so easy too. A vague idea and plan in the back of my head turned into a great event after just a simple email enquiry. Right from the start your responsiveness and lovely and professional attitude made what could have been a stress fest, just so easy. With all the other stuff that goes into planning a big party – this was a godsend!!

Again – a big thanks to you both and be sure to pass on my well wishes and praise to Sean won’t you.”
Leigh Scurr – 50th Birthday Party Queanbeyan Hotel 24th June 2017

“Sean was excellent… Very down to earth, put on a great show for my dad’s 50th – it made the night. I had so many of our guests saying how great he was which also made me very happy that they all had an enjoyable night! He had them all in tears… Would recommend him to anyone looking for a comedian. Top guy!” – Renee

“Sean was outstanding, did a really good job engaging the audience. His content is good, he is not crude and our audience found him hilariously funny. I’d have no hesitation in getting him back.”Brad

60th Birthday in a private home. Sean was rebooked after he did another mates 50th Party.

“Imagine walking into a room of 20 strangers at a dinner in someone’s home and then making them laugh, non-stop, for 60 minutes. That’s 60 minutes of great standup from a cold start. I wouldn’t have thought it possible but this guy Sean Woodland did it last night. I watch a fair bit of comedy and have to say this guy is really good, though I’d never heard his name. Can definitely recommend for any event, large or small. Topics include parenting, animals, children, marriage. A very funny guy.”
Sholto Macpherson

“Sean was great very accommodating and easy to get on with There is usually a lull in most parties when things start to taper off but not ours While he was doing his thing Sean had everyone’s attention
I would not hesitate in having Sean back again” – Jeff

“Sean was great, funny, witty and very appropriate. My friend Antony loved it! Very successful present” –Sara

“All of the guests had commented that it was the best performance that we have had so far, so you can pass that on to him from us all. You will be hearing from us again for next Christmas.” Thanks Genele

“Sean engaged the audience from the start, and left them laughing until it hurt” – Paul

“Immediate Impact – Sean had attendees of the Grand final Luncheon rolling, a great distraction from the seriousness of Rugby League. Our sincere thanks.” -Tamara

“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.

I’ve said to Sean, if he sends me any flyers or promotional material, I’d be more than happy to distribute. And apart from his act, what a lovely guy.  Please pass onto Sean my thanks.”

Kind regards Carolyn

“Sean was spot on! Absolutely the most friendly bloke. His show required turning up to a private house, nothing provided, for a small bucks party of about a dozen guys that had been drinking for 2 days……. And he smashed it, no warm up needed, and had us all laughing out loud. Don’t know how he does it. “


“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 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 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.” Adam

“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!!” Cheers Merryl

“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.
