Sean Grant got into comedy after getting a buzz from the laughs he got from delivering a best man speech. Just four months after his first-ever open-spot in May 2007, he won the Scottish Comedian Of The Year title, beating many more experienced acts.
Original Review:Sean Grant, 2007’s Scottish Comedian Of The Year, has distinctive material, delivered in a very dry deadpan. But that approach also makes him distant, and needlessly slows the pace of the set.
It shows an act afraid to engage with the audience, so he doesn’t try, instead seeking sanctuary in the strength of material – that’s where he finds his confidence, rather than in any interaction.
But he’s right to put store in the writing, which shows a lot of flair – even when talking about such generic subjects as teenage mums. He also exploits some unedifyingly selfish behaviour for some very well put-together routines.

Enjoyed your set at Eden Court Theatre, Inverness as part of the Gilded Balloon Comedy Circuit on the 11th October. The audience warmed to you from the first humorous line, not because you were on home territory,purely and simply you made the audience laugh! Being on the comedy circuit for such a short time you displayed the natural talent that a comedian needs, good timing and anecdotes not becoming too laboured and ultimately with a poor punchline. You left the stage with the audience wanting to hear more! That's certainly a good endorsement for any comedian.
Spot on Sean, well done
