Brew City Comedy brings top notch experiences to any audience.
Brew City Comedy puts on variety comedy shows, and improvisational comedy shows for any age range.
Brew City Comedy shows have interactive elements that really give the audience something to remember for a long time past the show.
We have been asked back for a second year for several venues now. We focus on the audience, and giving them something to remember.
Shawn and his team did a great job with our holiday party. They did a super job at reading the crowd and filling in local jokes where possible.
Response from Shawn Shelnutt:
Every member of my team that attended has nothing but great things to say about the experience. Thank you so much for having us! We had an amazing time performing for, and interacting with everyone there.
Shawn Shelnutt and his improv group were very personable, friendly, and most importantly very funny!
After Shawn was selected to do the show, he was very easy to contact through text messaging and emails, and he always got right back to me. We kept the lines of communication open right up to the time of the show. It was comforting to know that Shawn and his group would be there on-time (early) and that the show would be a success. I don't know who was more excited; me to to have the performance, or Shawn to perform. It was easy to sense and see his passion for the field of comedy during our conversations that led up to the show. I was also very impressed by Shawn when during one conversation he told me that he and his group would be rehearsing that night for our show.
Shawn and his group did arrive early on the date of the show. I met each member of his group before the show and they were all so very friendly and excited to perform. The show was for my father's 70th birthday party. It was awesome how they asked for tidbits of personal information about my father, and then hilariously incorporated it into the show.
As they performed, I looked around the room to make sure that everyone was laughing and having a great time. They ALL were. After the show, everyone I spoke to gave great reviews.
The bottom line is that I asked Shawn for a show that would give me that deep, uncontrollable belly laugh, and that kind of laugh that brings tears to your eyes. He and his group delivered, and went way above my expectations. I can't wait to invite them back to a future event, and will definitely refer friends and family who are looking to add laughs to their next big event.
Thanks Shawn! Thanks to your group! Good luck to all of you! Keep the masses laughing! It's great medicine!
Response from Shawn Shelnutt:
We were honored to be able to have been able to perform for your event and it was memorable for us as well. Words can't express our gratitude and a huge thank you for this amazing review. We look forward to any opportunity in the future with you, you were a great host and we are so glad to have had the interactions we all did. I shared the review with my team and they send their heartfelt thanks and warmest wishes to you. Cheers!
Shawn was funny. Kept it clean just as we requested. Every one seemed to be having a good time. Thank you.
