Episode 112: Shanna Christmas

Shanna Christmas was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. She is a stand up comedian, writer, actor and producer. She stands at 6’3’’ and played volleyball in college, despite much protest.


Her comedy style has been described as “Edgy/Classy” as she finds ways to speak about complicated issues that can offend, but she’s so charming that you can’t be mad at her.


Shanna has performed across North America, including Montreal and Edmonton in Canada. You can see her backside on episode 5 of Amazon’s “Inside Jokes” cause she crashed JFL. She can also be seen on an upcoming season of “Coming To The Stage,” which she was invited to do. 

Shanna’s festival appearances include the 208 Festival, Altercation Festival, Black Girl Giggles, Black Women In Comedy Festival (NY) and the Devil Cup Festival, where she took home the trophy in 2018. She was also a finalist in the inaugural ABFF Comedy fest in 2021.

In addition to producing successful all black women stand up shows, Shanna also a co-hosts the “Topical Smoothie” podcast. She’s currently working on a book about her life as an Occupational Therapy Assistant in nursing homes which will be available in September, 2021.
