"The Business helped with developing our style and skills due to the regular 20-25 minute sets," says Keane. Of his fellow Business comics — including Caitlin Gill, Nato Green, and Bucky Sinister — Keane says, "When you perform with people every week, you pick up on stuff from them and you get pushed by seeing someone go out and kill."

"Sean is someone who makes stand up look easy," Gill says. "He is impossibly likable, endlessly witty, and incredibly fun to watch, even more fun to be around." One of Gill's most memorable moments with Keane was the "Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction" show, in which Keane performed bits entitled "Riding Miss Daisy" and "Zero Dark 69."

Sadly for San Francisco comedy fans, Keane is at that point in his career where a move may soon be necessary. "SF is a great place, but I need to get to the next level and there's no comedy industry here," he points out. "Your ceiling as a SF comic is two weekends a year at the Punchline, and two weekends a year at Cobb's. To become a headliner, you have to be famous. To be famous you have to get on TV. And it's hard to get on TV in a place that does not produce many TV shows."

Until then, Keane's Business is booming on Mission Street, delighting audiences every week — even those who have to ride those carpeted BART seats to get home. Catch him while you can.

Consider I met this guy on a craigslist ad, and spent the next few hours crusing down highway 5 on a shared adventure to LA, I can attest to his brilliance and humor! He is not only one of the most down to earth guys I have met, but so witty and observant! So much deserved love sent your way SEAN! You are fvcking hilarious, and I know both Shazzas agree! Thanks for not being a serial killer!

So excited to see that the hilarious Sean Keane was honored like this. He's an amazing comedian, and a super nice guy! People in the South Bay will be able to see him live and in-person Thursday through Sunday (2/20-2/23) at Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Club in Sunnyvale, along with headliner John Wing who was on America's Got Talent last season. It's going to be a great show!
