Shawn Paul Mathenia wants to change the world through laughter. People's protective walls come down when you touch their funny bones. During this era of hardship, people need to laugh more than ever.

From comedy clubs, to corporate gigs, to fundraisers, to churches...Shawn Mathenia does the same material in every setting. His motto has always been: Funny is funny, no matter who or where you are. When you can make a hole in the wall bar filled with bikers laugh at clean jokes, you have the gift of humor.

Who is Shawn Paul Mathenia? He is the everyday American man. He is the guy that lives in the background... until he takes hold of a microphone.

Born the son of a Southern Baptist pastor, he has lived his life in church. There was always a wall between him and other church kids, and that is where his comedy comes from. He has always been a part of life, but being the outsider allowed him to observe all the goings on. He is a firm believer that humor is in every day life.

Shawn began doing stand up comedy in 2001. Like many other comics before him, his comedy life began with a contest. He lost, but he was hooked. From there, he spent the next few years in the Memphis, TN comedy scene. Comedy clubs, bars and church don't usually go together. But his fellow up-and-coming comics and comedy mentors accepted him, and he pursued the art of making people laugh.

Shawn was content with doing comedy clubs and hole-in-the-wall bars. He never desired to stand in front of a church and make the holy chosen laugh... that was until a long lost church buddy committed suicide. God used that moment to show Shawn that he needed a mission and a reason to open his mouth. God also showed him that everyone needed to laugh... even church people that pretend to have it all together.

An absolutely fabulous performance. Shawn had the audience hysterical. A welcome addition to any function. He was a pleasure to deal with and a true gentleman. He'd be welcome back at any time. Please feel free to use us as a reference at any time.
