What to Expect
Picture a modern Mae West. Shannon is a hot librarian who loves comic books and heavy metal, so you can bet she's got comedy material for nearly any situation. Clean, dirty, bikers, professionals... just let her go do her thing!
Shannon's show can be clean or dirty, just ask.
Although she's new to stand-up, she's had a mic in her hand since she was 16. Shannon's performing career started in high school when she hosted and produced a punk rock radio show at SUNY Fredonia, later working on and off air for a local radio network.
Shannon hosted the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz when it first came to Buffalo in 2012 and called roller derby bouts in front of crowds of up to 1,200 for the Queen City Roller Girls from 2006-2013. She's had sexy, comedic bit parts in two movies, "Slime City Massacre" and "Queen City."
Shannon holds a masters in library and information science from the University at Buffalo. She does web content management and social media marketing professionally and has freelanced as a music publicist. That is to say she can be counted on to promote her shows thoroughly.
