Shannon K. Dunn

Shannon is an award-winning actor and writer, who is best known for her comedic roles, and she loves to perform character parts!

When she was performing stand-up at the Comedy Store, she was recruited to be the lone female of an all-male improv group, and they performed in several LA-area venues for a few years but disbanded when Shannon was offered a series regular role on a comedy pilot.

She just completed filming a movie where she plays a snarky cashier in a grocery store titled, "Yellow Bird" and secured a role as a series regular in a drama TV pilot as well! One of her favorite roles was playing a smoking/drinking/cursing white trash chick for the short, "The Unmentionables" -- filmed in B&W on actual 16MM film!

After taking a 10-year hiatus to concentrate on writing, (she is an actor first) -- she sold 1 feature and 5 short films and has optioned 4 of her Christmas themed feature films (co-written with Tony Jerris). Most of the scripts she writes are simply to "Tina Fey" herself by writing supporting character roles specifically for her to play (usually not the lead). She has also won awards for her scripts/writing!

Although comedy is her first love, two of the scripts she has sold have been dramas! "Writing means I am constantly editing/revising. It's never perfect and I don't think I want anything to be absolutely perfect to be honest. Giving actors the freedom to improvise with my dialogue is awesome as long as they don't screw up the beats (for comedy) but get the words to come across naturally."

Shannon currently splits her time between her homes in California and Colorado.
