Shannon, Laverty

Since entering the Yuk Yuks Search for Canada's Funniest New Comic years ago, Laverty has been nominated four times for a Canadian comedy award. In December 2014 she was named as a top host of the year in Now Magazine by comedy critic Glen Sumi. She has traveled from Vancouver to St. John's, and toured Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, South Africa.

Some of her favorite shows have been at community fundraisers and Military posts. She has performed at a NATO base in Germany and hopes one day to travel the world performing for all of the military personnel. Shannon's recent TV and radio credits include Laugh out Loud, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Listed, Club 54, and Fruitopia.

Comedy Funfest at Paramount Canada's Wonderland (broadcast on CKVR-TV).

She appears in 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, and other networks. She has appeared at comedy festivals such as YYC Calgary comedy Festival, Sudbury LOL comedy Festival, Niagara Falls Comedy Festival and the Molson Canadian Toronto Comedy Festival.

Laverty's on stage persona is proud to be provocative. Her come-hither attitude will draw you in and her flirtatious delivery has been embraced by all sexes.
