Description: Raised on the south side of Chicago, Shawn uses different facets of his life to draw from for his comedy, although he admits that it’s exaggerated at times. He describes his comedy style as being laid back, real, and true to the situation. He uses his jokes not only to draw laughs but also to turn real situations into learning experiences.
Shawn went to school with Bernie Mac’s daughter and credits Bernie, another Chicago comedian, as being the person who inspired his career. Bernie gave him career advice and inside information that he feels “put him at an advantage and allowed him not to go into the comedy circuit with blinders.”
Shawn has done well for himself, as is evidenced by his accomplishments to date, like performing at venues such as the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, the Laff Factory in Los Angeles, the Civic Center in Atlanta and appearing twice on BET’s popular comedy show “Comic View.” To see Shawn’s comedy for yourself, you can check Shawn out as a featured comic on P. Diddy presents The Bad Boys of Comedy on HBO, the Big Black Comedy Jam DVD and more… Or check him out right here at the Laff House Comedy Club for 4 Laff till you cry performances.
