There’s nothing more embarrassing than writing your own biography for your website. Should I try to make it funny? Just list my credits? Tell a coming of age story of how I dreamed to be a comedian as a kid, then I got hit by a car, my dad died, and I started telling poop jokes and it all changed? I don’t know. I’m no storyteller, so I’ll just get straight to the point. I’m from Chicago and I started comedy in 2005. I bombed. Boy, did I bomb a lot, and still do. After endless times going to open-mics and local stand-ups shows, I caught a break when I was a regular at the defunct Lakeshore Theater opening for amazing comedians such as Doug Stanhope, Jim Jeffries, and Al Madrigal. Stanhope decided to take me on tour with him, and he bragged about how much little he paid me, but I thought I was rich at the end of it. I’ve never even been in a hotel room before and had to learn how to pack a suitcase. Yeah, I’m that out of touch. After I got off tour with Stanhope, I got a huge break when Dave Attell and Comedy Central invited me to perform on Comedy Central’s Underground with Dave Attell. Since then, I was invited to perform on Last Comic Standing Season 2015, and Norm MacDonald even gave me some of the best praise I’ve ever had during my career.
When he’s not on the road, his free time is spent marathon running, streamlining vigilante justice, and enriching the lives of farm animals. He also comes from a long and triumphant line of Freemasons, who founded the fair city of Eugene, Oregon. Although he is 1/32 African American, he made the choice long ago to forgo racial material in his repertoire. This triple threat will soon be a licensed real estate salesman, in the hopes of parlaying his selling adventures into comedic gold. Favorite color is yellow.
Sean Rouse was one of the breakout stars with Dave Attell, Greg Giraldo, and Dane Cook on Comedy Central’s Insomniac Tour. He was in Men in Black II and also on HBO’s critically acclaimed Down & Dirty with Jim Norton. He’s irreverent, even though he looks innocent. He’s likeable even though he’s highly obscene. But most of all, he’s extremely entertaining.
