Throughout his childhood in Detroit, MI, Shawn held the distinction of being the only black kid on the block who couldn’t play basketball. As the subject of so many jokes, Shawn understood what made people laugh at an early age. With the help of some encouragement from his friends and family, Shawn began his comedy career in January 2004 as a New Year’s resolution to himself. It’s the only one he has ever kept. Since then, Shawn has been polishing his act and working his way up the ladder by performing at clubs in Michigan and Canada.
A self-professed pop culture freak and student of the world, topics of commentary at one of Shawn’s performances can range from celebrities to previous jobs to street racing in a matter of minutes. His playfully cynical observations, outrageous situations and biracial point of view are sure to entertain in any venue.
In his brief but productive career, Shawn has had the honor of working with some of the finest comics in the Midwest and beyond, including Dave Landau, Melvin Bender, Leo Dufour, Joe Matarese, and Myq Kaplan just to name a few.
Shawn has performed in a number of comedy clubs, including: Joey’s Comedy Club (Livonia, MI), Leo’s Komedy Korner (Windsor, ON), Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle (Royal Oak, MI), Wiseguys Comedy Club (Novi, MI), The Comedy Room (Wyandotte, MI), Maxie’s (Flint, MI) and The Holly Hotel (Holly, MI)
