Shannon O'Neill is a writer, performer and teacher at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
She can be seen every Friday night with The Stepfathers, an improv powerhouse of nerds and dirty dawgs, and every Sunday in UCB's longest running show, ASSSSCAT 30000. She is a member of the sketch group Thunder Gulch, a UCB Theatre house team that performs a new show the second Monday of every month. She also travels the country with the UCB Touring Company. If you had a time machine, you could travel backwards over the past 10 years and see her perform with improv super groups, Optimist International, Mailer Daemon and fwand. She also performed with The Joe Ross Tribe, but lets be honest, nobody remembers them and if they do they don't want to talk about it. That time machine would also give you the chance to see her perform in a poop ton of sketch shows like Braintown, Sketch Show, NeoTokyo Girl Crush 2040, The Dogs of St. Christopher, Double X , Soundtracks Live, Laid UP! and Tick Tick Tick. Wait, do you have a time machine? If so, please use it on something better, like not letting Superman ride that horse.
Shannon's one person show "Prison Freaks: A Talent Show" has recieved rave reviews and in March, Shannon was named one of "Three to Watch" by Time Out New York.
Shannon has been with the theatre for so long, she is practically a ghost. Please don't try to put your hand through her though, that would be weird.
When she's not haunting the UCB Theatre, Shannon hangs out with her husband and adopted dogs Luz & Rico. The four of them like to bet on the ponies.
