Shaun Jones – Headliner
For more than 16 years, the comedy world’s senses have been tantalized by both audio and visual artistry. The young known as Shaun Jones is making his mark everywhere he goes with his quick wit and fashionable flair.
Born in Newark, New Jersey and having lived in Los Angeles for a short time, Shaun now calls Atlanta, GA home. He has traveled abroad entertaining crowds using many of his personal life experiences to get a laugh. Like an accomplished chef, Shaun’s comedy performances combine a cup of truth, a spoonful of originality, and a double twist of humor. When he takes the stage, he mixes his talents before the audience, bakes his show just right and serves up a unique dish to satisfy everyone’s laughter appetite.
Shaun has appeared on several television appearances like B.E.T’S Comic View, Black Starz “1st Amendment Standup”, and Robert Townsend’s “Partners In Crime-the next generation”. He also was in the 2003 motion picture called “Shade” as the crooked poker player, Mr. Ose starring Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone.
You can be sure that Shaun will bring his “game on” while he makes The Holiday Inn & Suites Charleston West Comedy Zone Laugh, Laugh, Laugh!
