A One Night Stand

The 24 year old Irishman became the youngest ever winner of the Perrier award with a finely crafted set that showed wisdom beyond his years. Not long after he enjoyed a cult success with his award-winning Sean's Show on Channel 4. A six year reign as team captain on Never Mind The Buzzcocks between 1996 and 2002 cemented his place in the national consciousness and after this he enjoyed an acting stint in The Last Detective.
