SEAN WOODLAND – Father of two Sean Woodland began performing stand-up comedy at age 40. In his first two years he either won or placed in numerous Australian comedy competitions including Green Faces, Quest for the Best and the RAW NSW State Final. Since then he has forged his dream career, captivating audiences around Australia and abroad, with his ‘everyman’ appeal always a winning formula.

Not limited to the stage Sean performs in sketch comedy, is a regularly published freelance writer and is the author of two novels.
