Sean Flannery
Never Been to Paris
The Comedy Bar
Sean Flannery's critically acclaimed one man show. Flannery has been tearing shit up lately with featured appearances on Comedy Centrals Mash Up. His one man show is hilarious... read why:
After being voted best stand-up comedian in Chicago in 2010 by The Chicago Reader, Ohio-native Sean Flannery brings his one-man show to The Comedy Bar with hilarious tales of his several brushes with death. Sean explains, “While telling the stories, I show pictures from the events and mix other multimedia into the show - voicemails, video and even some animation. In some ways, it's like watching a guy show his vacation photos - if he nearly killed himself 10 times on his vacation.
Bring a bra (a new or newish one fools!) and get 2 free drink tickets!
