Reviews and Quotes

 

Steve Bennett CHORTLE 2019 Leicester Comedian Of The Year Finalist 2019

Sean Turner, a dry, surreal bloke from the North East, all of which invite comparisons with Gavin Webster. Some of his one-liners are delightfully absurd, and very funny.
He’s got funny instincts

Sean Turner at times was absurdist and surreal, he was just as good as American legend Steven Wright. The moment when he diffused his difficult jokes by singing a song in a club-land style was Reeves and Mortimer at their finest. It was thoroughly entertaining.

He is a different kind of act all together. Completely unpredictable and unbelievably funny,

Sean Turner, with his enthusiasm for audience participation and cheeky twists was a highlight - Narc magazine review of silly billies 

 

David Hadingham, Comedian and Northeast Jesterval comedy festival/ Grinning Idiot Promoter

I couldn’t believe how much I laughed, honestly, I couldn't believe it!

I can't think of on occasion ever when the open spot got an encore though but Sean Turner did. Will be keeping a close eye on this guy.

 

Giggle Beats, Developments in comedy tend to come from the outsiders rather than the mainstream. Sean is as out there as anyone out there. Keep an eye on him.

 

Jack Gardner, Silly Billies Comedy club Newcastle.

 

Sean Turner is incredibly original whilst also being a part of that rich Geordie tradition of otherworldly surrealism. He has an imagination the size of Jupiter and the warmth of a cuddle from a Hairy Biker, which combined makes him one of the most underrated and finest stand-ups around. Sean Turner is the real deal make no mistake!

 

Simon Donald/  Comedian and one of the Viz comic creators 

 

Sean pushes boundaries, he's not easy to pigeonhole. You don't know what you're going to get.  He's a proper alternative comedian.
