24: Standing Up with (Sean)

Sean Kleier comes from a background unlike most our guests. Not convinced arts could be a job – it wasn’t until later he started to pursue. After moving to NY, nabbing a restaurant job, doing open mics, getting looped into the commercial world, his viral video got the attention of an agent. Now Sean is a series regular on Bravo’s Odd Mom Out and chats about all his mistakes as well as his socially conscious side projects.
