Sean Collins isn't your typical stand-up. In fact, for much of his act he sits down -- on a stool, beer in hand -- and tells stories. Good thing the audience is sitting down, too, because Collins -- not to be confused with comic Sean Cullen -- comes up with some wickedly dark shit. A former counsellor with street kids in Vancouver, the Ottawa Valley native doesn't shy away from heavy material, whether it concerns giving multiple hand jobs to prison inmates or shouting down the Britney Spears look-alike in the front row. Just back from big gigs at Just For Laughs and England's Glastonbury Festival, he headlines Yuk Yuk's Downtown through Saturday. Not to be missed. See comedy listings, this page, for details.
