• About Me

    Shannon Bacchus is a Chicago based comedian and creative. She holds a degree in Communication from the College of Charleston.


    While in college, Shannon honed her skills as a stand-up comedian both in and out of the classroom. For her senior capstone she studied how loud an audience laughs at stand-up shows vs. improv shows. Her research was even accepted at the highly competitive Souther State Communication Conference in Austin, TX.


    Shannon is a graduate from the iO training program and the Conservatory at Second City. She trained at the Second City Training Center in writing for sketch comedy, improv, and comedic acting. She also completed the Comedy Studies program through Columbia College Chicago.


    Shannon is a cast member in the National Touring Company of Mission Improvable and the co-founder of CatNip Cabaret. She is also on the celebrated teams: Improvised Jane Austen and Burlesque is More.


    Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Shannon has had the pleasure to perform virtually with Mission Improvable, act in several covid safe film productions, and write her little heart out into several original pilots and writing packets.
