Night Train with Guest Host Seaton Smith
This week's edition of Night Train will be hosted by the wonderful Seaton Smith!
Applying smooth charisma to a layer of explosive energy, topped off with unforgettable characters sure to permanently reside in your brain, Seaton Smith leaves his audience in a state of comedic euphoria as he killed performing on Opie and Anthony Virus tour and the New Faces show at Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.
