Seán Cullen was regular on the Tonight Show and he's appeared on
stages in Chicago, Toronto and at the Stratford Festival. He writes
books for young readers, his "Hamish X and The Cheese Pirates," won
the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile Crime Book.
Plus he has a podcast, the Seanpod, and with all that going on he still finds time to play hockey three times a week.
Seán Cullen and I talk about his improvisation and writing, as well as his path to success in comedy.
He also talks about his work on stage and why he describes his time performing 8 shows a week in "The Producers" as "just trying not to get sick."
Seán mentions his time as a CBC Radio host and says "I was rambling completely and this drove the CBC Mad." But his rambling got the attention of a book publisher that led to the opportunity to his write books for young readers.
