With the appeal of a teddy bear and the soul of a frat boy, Shawn Halpin has made a successful debut into the world of comedy. His stand up style is full of honesty, making him the kind of comedian that anyone would love to have a beer with after the show.
Shawn grew up in a single parent household in the outskirts of Dallas, Texas ( which would later prove to be hilarious). He started behind the scenes at one of the hottest comedy clubs in the country, as a door guy, where he worked his way through the trenches and landed himself the coveted title of house emcee. As the house emcee Shawn worked with some of the biggest names in the business, Louie C.K., Pablo Francisco, Jim Gaffigan, and Mitch Hedberg among a long list of others.
With topics that range from being raised without a father, to his life as a Marine, where the “higher-ups” deemed his comedy inappropriate for the military, as well as his problems with commitment and abandonment. Shawn’s stand up comedy appeals to everyone that is not easily offended. Honesty of life can be hard to swallow. Shawn’sappeal is genuine and is sure to entertain audiences for years to come, as he is already doing so across the country.
For anyone that wants to see a comedian that talks about topics you’ve heard about before, then this is not your man. Shawn was a regional finalist for NBC’s Last Comic Standing II, winner of Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Competition, and a finalist in the Texas Comedy Festival. The goal of Shawn Halpin’s comedy is to entertain an audience with his real opinions on his life that are not censored or sugar coated.
After moving to Los Angeles, Shawn is regularly seen at the World Famous Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory, and the Hollywood Improv. Shawn is a writer for National Lampoon and is the featured, working on the road with Pauly Shore. This year Shawn can be seen working with Tom Green and has been featured on “The Channel”, Tom Greens webovision show that is the top rated talk show on the internet.
