Cullen.jpg Those who fear that the execrable comedy stylings of Mike Bullard constitute Canada’s only (living) contribution to the world of portly funnymen can take heart in the growing popularity of one Mr. Sean Cullen.
Having under his long belt and his Gleasonesque pork-pie hat both a very odd, six-episode CBC miniseries and a stint as Max Bialystock in the TO production of The Producers, Cullen’s been attending lately to the sorts of tasks that describe the arc of the comedian ascendant: Comedy Central Special, Leno visits, hosting a Just For Laughs gala… All he’s got to do now is sign up for an edge-killing, unfunny sitcom starring Fran Drescher as his lippy wife and he’s really made it.
In the mean time, however, the man himself will be appearing to Torontonians every Monday night at the overly-hip Drake Hotel Lounge, testing new riffs on his bizarre brand of stream-of-consciousness, non-sequitur-heavy comedy.
And the price of this plebe-blessing appearance to said plebes? Nothing at all, unless you want a cocktail. Enjoy.
