"Telegram review"

Excerpt from The Telegram, June 24, 2008
"Newfoundland foursome garner most laughs at gala" by Justin Brake, Special to The Telegram

"... Sheehan's routine, in particular, had the crowd in stitches for the better part of his 10-minute set. He told the story of a mainlander he met in Ontario who asked him if he was happy to be away from the drinking and fighting in Newfoundland.

"My first impulse was to punch him in the head," Sheehan said, pausing for a moment. "But I figured I'd spill my beer."

The former member of Gander theatre company "Acting Up Entertainment" closed his set with a five-minute re-enactment of a series of drunken phone messages he left on a buddy's voicemail and left the audience raucously cheering for him as he left the stage.

"...The only comic to give Sheehan a run for his money was Majumder, whose on-screen success in Canadian television is unmatched by any other second-generation Newfoundland comedian, with five seasons of "22 Minutes" under his belt, hosting gigs for 15 "Just For Laughs" television specials, and a slew of other TV program appearances."

"To say John Sheehan "killed" at the 2008 St. John's Comedy Festival would not do him justice. He "obliterated." His was the first name on people's tongues as they left our shows, and the rave continues. John has clearly quantum-leaped to a whole new level. In the words of Canadian Comedy legend Mike MacDonald, moments after our Sunday GALA, "That John Sheehan guy? KABOOM!"
