My story starts out when I was working the latest in a string of retail and call centre jobs. I was on the phone dialling for dollars and not having much luck, like every day, and caught myself staring at the clock. I became aware of time passing in a way I never had before, realized that the path I was on did not lead to where I thought I was going with my life, and became filled with a sense of urgency that I had lost time to make up for. I instantly made a decision to put into practice the principles I had been absorbing from a collection of books that I still reference to this day, and stopped showing up to work to dedicate my Life to my Art.
With No money and No Education, before I even had a smartphone or an internet connection of my own, I started writing and drawing my own comic books, printing them on a self-serve photocopier at Staples, and selling them to strangers on the street. That was how I earned a living for three years.
A series of release events for each new Comic Book issue morphed into an underground film series where I screened short parody movies about my adventures as a galavanting street artist, featuring musical guests and my own performances. These events got me invited to join the cast of a top rated light night TV show as their new Master of Ceremonies. I was with that show for the last two years of it's run, and then began experimenting with online video.
For two years I tried uploading everything from vlogs to music videos to comedy sketches. A Batman prank video I made went viral and became a worldwide media sensation. For the rest of that year I tried a bunch of different things but the Videos that were informed by my love of Superheroes and Comic Books were the Successful ones.
After another year of dedicating myself full-time to developing my YouTube channel long before I could afford to live that way, I made the decision to start publishing weekly. Today The Sean Ward Show starring #TeamSuperFunny is the #1 most-watched cosplay comedy channel on YouTube with over 2 million subscribers and 1 billion video videos from 200+ countries.
