Meet Seamus Evans: The boy who was often more engrossed in evoking laughter in class than in his studies, who faced daunting challenges with ADHD and Tourette Syndrome but never let these setbacks define him. Instead, they fueled his journey.

For many, low grades and limited career prospects might spell the end of their dreams. But for Seamus, they merely marked the beginning of a remarkable journey—one filled with ambition, resilience, and a boundless zest for life. His name now resonates with households across the country, thanks to his unmistakable presence on iconic shows like Toasted TV and Totally Wild. But that’s not all. Seamus’s radio voice has been the uplifting start to many a morning, most recently echoing through the airwaves of 91.1 Sea FM Breakfast on the Sunshine Coast.

However, his influence doesn’t stop at the screen or the radio. Embracing his role as an Ambassador of Tourette Syndrome Australia, Seamus has transformed into a beacon of hope and inspiration. His keynote speeches—delivered at schools, universities, conferences, and businesses—are not mere talks. They are transformative experiences. With his inimitable blend of humor and heart, Seamus invites his audiences to laugh, cry, and most importantly, to believe in the power of individuality.

This episode invites you to step into the world of Seamus Evans. A world where adversities aren’t roadblocks but stepping stones. Where ‘being different’ isn’t a challenge, but a superpower. And in dedicating this episode to Cameron—a wonderful teenager who touched so many lives—we’re reminded that every story has the potential to inspire, uplift, and encourage us to pursue our dreams, no matter the odds.
