This sassy female will blow you away with her physical comedy and high energy. If Dane Cook and Kathy Griffin were to have a love child, then this would be your comic for hire. Shawn will take you on a wild ride with her outrageous impersonations and knowledge of pop culture. Her ability to nickname and work a crowd will blow your mind. Once you “Stretch it Out” with Shawn Pelofsky, you will never stop.
Shawn was born one out of ten Jews in Oklahoma. Performing since the age of eight, it’s only natural that Shawn decided to pursue a career in comedy. She attended the University of Southern California and received a B.A. from The School of Theater. During her time at USC, she joined an improvisational group “Comedius Interruptus” which became her motivating force to train at The Groundlings.
By the age of 20, Shawn Pelofsky was performing sketches and improv with comedic giant (SNL’s) Will Ferrell'. With a couple years of improv under her belt, she became a member of The ACME Comedy Theater. During her time at ACME, Shawn flourished in the field of stand-up comedy culminating with her current status as a regular at The World Famous Comedy Store. When she’s not touring or performing for our troops in places like Afghanistan, Bosnia, Bahrain and Guantanamo Bay, Shawn performs weekly on their infamous Main Room stage. Adding to her many comedic accolades, Shawn has been featured in The Montreal “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival and in the all female hit comedy tours Pretty Funny Women, Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad and The Hot Tamales produced by Eva Longoria. She has opened up for greats such as Richard Lewis, Robert Klein, Bill Maher and the fabulous Margaret Cho.
Shawn has given the comedy competition circuit a run for its money as a finalist for The Funniest Woman in Orange County and in Comedy Central's "Laugh Riots".
