Seaton Smith

with Haywood Turnipseed Jr.

Seaton Smith is a comedian, actor, writer and director.

In late 2014, Seaton made his television debut as “Motif” on Fox's “Mulaney.”

Soon after in 2015 he had a breakout performance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Then he got real lucky appearing in “Inside Amy Schumer,” in the season 5 finale of HBO’s “Girls,” and Hulu's “Difficult People.” All while also being a regular guest on Comedy Central’s “Nightly Show.” In 2017, Seaton had a blast making people uncomfortable when he made his first appearance on “Conan.”

Vulture named him one of the 50 comedians you should know in 2015: "He’s bursting with energy in a way that sets him apart in a overcrowded stand-up scene." Chortle.com says Seaton “offers a mesmerizing, livewire performance, full of joy and amazing comic energy.”

In September 2015, Seaton released his debut album, “Bologna Meat.” He has performed at more than 200 colleges across the country and he has headlined shows across the world, appearing in international comedy festivals.

Originally starting in Washington, DC, he now lives in NYC.
