‘Sean Patton, the brilliant New Orleans raconteur and spinner of cleverly interwoven stories, was like an auctioneer taking phantom bids last Saturday, responding to non-existent backchat from his adoring audience. To be fair, he merits slack-jawed awe. Patton’s outlining of his obsessive-compulsive behaviour — a series of deals made with God — is an apotheosis of indy stand-up.’ – Chortle
“I’ve seen him perform more than a dozen sets, and he’s killed every time. He’s dynamite, even with ordinary material, turning standard Brooklyn hipster jokes into a stomping, roaring tour de force, and elevating a bit about sex-performance anxiety into high-stakes comedy. […] He’s the rare comic who goes over as well in a comedy club as in a bar basement.” – New York Times
Sean Patton appears on the album Silent Anxiety.
