Better known in Ozark Mountain Country as Apple Jack, Shannon was born and raised in the small town of Rayville, Louisiana, and lived most of his life in the Pelican State before moving to Branson 15 years ago. A natural born performer, Shannon grew up singing and performing in his church, as well as in local theatre and several bands in and around Richland Parish.
Shannon decided to audition for Silver Dollar City and was hired to be a part of The Silver Dollar Saloon Show and the Echo Hollow evening show. In 2007 he became a part of the Comedy Jamboree Show and has been tickling the funny bones of thousands of visitors every year. He also hosts the Amazing Pets show.
One of his favorite aspects about the Comedy Jamboree is the fact he gets to interact with the crowd, who he loves to visit with after the show, passing out his famous hugs and infectious laughter. “The comedy is the body of the show and the music, singing and dancing is the life blood,” Shannon said. “We are so blessed to be here doing what we’re do every day because the Bible says a merry heart does a body good, and that’s what we strive to do.”
