October 18th, 2012, CHICAGO, IL – THE COMEDY BAR proudly presents: “Never Been To Paris”, starring Sean Flannery - voted 2010 best Chicago standup comedian by The Chicago Reader – brings his multimedia one-man show about his close calls with death. Flannery has been featured on ABC News and NPR’s Snap Judgment. Jim Belushi opens the show with some stories of his own.

After being voted best stand-up comedian in Chicago in 2010 by The Chicago Reader, Ohio-native Sean Flannery brings his one-man show to The Comedy Bar with hilarious tales of his several brushes with death. Sean explains, “While telling the stories, I show pictures from the events and mix other multimedia into the show - voicemails, video and even some animation. In some ways, it's like watching a guy show his vacation photos - if he nearly killed himself 10 times on his vacation."

“I'm excited to bring ‘Never Been to Paris’ to the Comedy Bar,” says Flannery “it's become one of my favorite clubs to perform at and I think their audiences, which are fun-loving to say the least, will really match well with the show's content.” 

“Never Been To Paris” has been featured on NPR’s ‘Snap Judgment’ and a segment on ABC News. The Chicago Reader calls Sean Flannery “a master storyteller [with] beautifully structured stories.”
