Since entering the Yuk Yuks Search for Canada's Funniest New Comic 24 years ago, Laverty has traveled from Vancouver to St. John's. In 2001, she toured Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, South Africa. She is a favorite with clubs, community fundraisers and Military posts. In October 2006 she performed at a NATO base in Germany and hopes one day to travel the world performing for all of the military personnel.
Laverty's big dream in life is to become a sex therapist, but since that involved going back to school she decided that hosting "The Everything To Do With Sex Show" in 2004 was credit enough.
Shannon's recent TV and Radio credits include Listed (Much More Music), Club 54, "Fruitopia Comedy Funfest" at Paramount Canada's Wonderland (broadcast on CKVR-TV), The Movie Network's Pay-Per-View comedy special "Mondo Taboo 2", She's So Funny and Funny Girls on the Woman's Television Network, Comics (On CBC) and Yuk Yuk's The Radio Show on the Telemedia Network.
Shannon has also made numerous appearances at the Molson Canadian Toronto Comedy Festival. She has also been nominated four times for the Canadian Comedy awards.
Laverty's on stage persona is proud to be provocative. Her Mae West come-hither attitude will draw you in and her flirtatious delivery has been embraced by both sexes.
