Despite looking like he's just stepped out of a Kays catalogue, Sean Meo has actually been a professional stand-up since 1989. Before that, like his namesake Tony, he was a full time snooker player and was a quarter finalist in the English Championships of 1987. Since then, he has risen to the very top of the UK comedy scene and is much in demands as both a stand-up and a writer.
On television, he has worked alongside and with such diverse names as Clive James, Jack Docherty and Jimmy Tarbuck and appeared on everything from Des O'Connor Tonight, Celebrity Squares, and Talking Telephone Numbers, to Talking About Sex for Channel 4.
In 1998 Sean was awarded the title Comic of The Year by Timeout Magazine. Sean has appeared at the Kilkenny, Cork and Montreal Comedy Festivals.
Sean's impressive wealth of material sets him apart from many of his contemporaries and he has been asked to write and perform specific sets for various corporate functions. Recent corporate clients include British Petroleum, British Telecom, Andersons Consulting, Chrysler Jeep, PC Direct, Forte Post House, Comet, Chemical Bank, Volvo and the Press Advertising Awards.
He has performed all over the world, The 2002 Singapore Comedy Festival. Previous festivals include The Melbourne Comedy Festival, The New Zealand Comedy Festival, Kilkenny, Edinburgh, Manchester and the Montreal Comedy Festival. He has worked extensively in the US including Cobbs, San Francisco, Caroline's, New York and the Riviera in Las Vegas.
