What does the title of Seán Cullen's new show, Erotic Laser Swordfight, mean? Probably nothing. He's just being silly. And showing off his stream-of-consciousness improv. That, after all, is why we swarm his shows again and again. Plus, he always looks like he's having as much fun -- singing, doing impersonations or just kidding around -- as us. He plays the Rivoli July 3 to 6 before heading off to Just For Laughs, the Vancouver Comedy Festival and a huge run at the Edinburgh Fest. See listings, this page, for details.
What's so erotic about your show?
The eroticism is unspoken, intrinsic without being blatant -- the way a fine wood stain protects your deck but arouses you at the same time.
Are you part of the Weall and Cullen gardening empire?
I was heir to the throne, but I was ousted by Jimmy, the bastard Prince of Perennials.
If they named a cocktail after you, what would be in it, and how much would it cost?
Kahlua, twigs and mud. $8 Hong Kong, no other currencies accepted.
What will you do if we get the 2008 Olympics?
Get drunk and crash the marathon.
What should we do with Mayor Mel?
Make his son sit on him.
If you and Eddy Izzard got in a fight, who would win?
I would win because Eddy would be covered in jam.
