Dudley's very own 'Sultan of Smut'. A consistently popular act from a larger than life and earthy performer. 'Sean's humour is not surreal, it's not wacky, it's just bl**dy funny. This is not smile humour, this is bust your gut rubber underpants stuff' (What's On) '... the big gold star of the show must be the long-haired man from Dudley. He came. He spoke. He had us curled up begging for more...' (Evening Mail) '... comedian and scriptwriter Sean Percival. His brand of comedy steers clear of the surreal and confronts realism in an explosively funny way. His down to earth act is bang up to date with its upfront attitude, no long stories, just gags galore' (Funhouse Comedy).
