Sean hits the road running

Have your say

AFTER performing two critically-acclaimed shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, award-winning comedian, Sean Hughes, is heading to the region as part of a national tour.

From the moment the lights come up on Life Becomes Noises, revealing a hospital bed and Sean dressed in a slightly inappropriate costume, it is apparent that this is going to be no ordinary comedy show.

It has been over a year since his father died, and Sean is dealing with his death in a way that only Sean can.

This hilarious, yet poignant tale, is an insight into the lighter side of dying and getting older.

Sean has performed all over the world and, as well as being the youngest ever winner of the coveted Perrier Award, he has also won a Fringe First for his short plays, Dehydrated and Travellin’ Light.

Despite a prolonged absence from the comedy arena, he was recently voted No. 40 in Channel 4′s World’s 100 Greatest Comedians poll.

Sean’s TV and radio credits include writing and starring in the Sean’s Show and a long stint on Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
