Vulture named him one of the 50 comedians you should know in 2015 and said "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" and Time Out New York called him "a naturally effervescent stage presence...as spirited as he is cerebral…one to watch." In September 2015, under the legendary comedy record comedy New Wave, Seaton released his debut album "Bologna Meat," which Laugh Button reviewed: "Smith's humor is smart, energetic, and refreshingly clever as he fiddles with unique views on the world…continuously brings something new and exciting to stale topics.” He’s performed at over 200 colleges across the country and he has headlined shows across the world, appearing in international comedy festivals like the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, The Melbourne Comedy Festival, and the Iveagh Gardens Comedy Festival in Dublin. "I got platinum miles yo!" – Seaton Smith once said. Originally starting in Washington DC, he now lives in NYC.
