on Thompson's Comedian Bio
Bio Shannon Thompson is no lightweight when it comes to comedy. With his brothel-sized vocabulary and rye (wry) sense of irony, he slays audiences like a modern day Samurai after a drunken binge. Shannon has used his unique perspective on life, not to mention his unusual experiences, to create a comedic prose like no other. As a child Shannon would spend countless hours engaged in swearing contests with the other neighborhood children, and was almost always victorious. This naturally led to a budding interest in humor, and eventually stand up comedy. He has performed at: Skyline Comedy Cafe, The Loonie Bin, The Minnesota Comedy Club, The Joke Joint Comedy Club, Nitwits and many others. He is also a founding member of the comedy troupe, Intellectual Delinquents.
