We were fortunate enough to be able to talk ish with Chicago’s very own…Comedian Shawn Morgan!!! He’s not necessarily a up and comer, but more like a been there done that, just trying to repeat and defeat. In case you may not know, possibly even forgot (which you shouldn’t have) or been living under a rock, Mr. Shawn Morgan is a comedian and actor, who has been seen (and heard of course) on Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes?, P. Diddy’s Bad Boy’s of Comedy, BET’s Comic View, Walter Latham’s Comedy After Dark, and the list keeps going on and on.
3 Voices: So Shawn, from the introduction it’s obvious that you been around for a while accomplishing a few things. What’s your most memorable experience?
Shawn Morgan: Winning Bill Bellamys Who Got Jokes and getting my own special on tv one.
3 Voices: When did you realize that being a comedian fit your job description better than a regular 9 to 5?
Shawn Morgan: As a kid, I knew it was my calling. I even filmed a short stand up in front of a few friends when I was like 15 I wish i could find that.
3 Voices: Not too long ago, our very own Shams (Loyal Brown, Simply Brown, Brown , you probably recognize her as being ol girl with the glasses) gave comedy a brief shot for a moment and actually witnessed you doing what you do best at a local comedy club in Dolton. You may have actually startled her a little with referring to the elderly lady in a super freak joke. Is there a line between the things you will and will not say when you’re up on stage?
Shawn Morgan: I think there are no boundaries. Freedom of speech is our first amendment right? Some things are sensitive but I dont mind pushing the envelope.
3 Voices: We think it’s great when someone has been on nationally televised shows on more than one occasion and still go out and do shows in local comedy clubs. What makes you do that?
Shawn Morgan: Even Michael Jordan had to practice. Plus it keeps my knife sharp. Local spots are harder than big venues, so if it works there it should work everywhere.
3 Voices: Not that we be tweet watching or anything but we notice that you actually engage in conversations with some Hollywood celebrities such as Tony Rock. Who all from the Hollywood industry that you can actually call and get a answer from, tweet and they actually tweet you back, or you might have even been over there houses and hung with them?
Shawn Morgan: Im not gonna really name drop like that but I will say that I have been very fortunate to befriend and or be in the company of a lot of celebrities.
3 Voices: Right, right and we can respect that. You’ve been on several stages already, what’s your ultimate goal?
Shawn Morgan: I would say my ultimate goal is to not necessarily be the best or top 5 or any ranking system i just want to be mentioned with the likes of legends and to also become a legitimate actor both comedic and dramatic
3 Voices: If people want to reach out to you in the social media, what’s your Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook so that people don’t be reaching out to those fake Shawn Morgans?
Shawn Morgan: IG and twitter both: comicshawn
