Hi. Shannon Hardy here. Just hanging. Writing my bio. I think I'm supposed to write in third person now. But that feels soooo off-putting and weird. This is all a little weird, right? You're on my website to know more about me, but I haven't even asked who YOU are! Are you my ex? Did we go to high school together? If so, please creep on my Instagram like a normal freakin' hater. But if you're "some industry person" reading this, then hello gorgeous and thank you so much for doing that! 

Shannon Hardy is a comedian, writer, actress, and pretty alright person from Massachusetts! She received her BA in Film & TV Production from USC's School of Cinematic Arts. Currently her pilot, THE GODMOTHER, is a Second Rounder in the 2022 Launch Pad Pilot Writing Competition and #15 on The Red List's top comedy pilots. WeScreenplay ranked THE GODMOTHER's dialogue and characters among the 92nd percentile within the 2022 Diverse Voices competition, with judges calling it "one of a kind in its genre." In 2021, Hardy's feature film, DADDY ISSUES, was a Yes and Laughter Lab finalist. Her short films have been featured at Clexacon, LA Women’s Independent Film Festival, AGLIFF, LA Cinefest, NFFTY, and Film Pipeline. If you like gay stuff, her film "Yes and No" is available for streaming on Tello and The Advocate's PRIDE.com

Hardy got her start hosting on Dirty Water TV (NESN), and currently co-hosts the mini-series, Conspiracy Central (Pollution TV). Last year, she hosted Women Creating Comedy alongside Ziwe Fumudoh, Rachel Sennott, Chelsea Devantez, London Hughes, and Jana Schmieding. More recently, Shannon appeared in the Facebook Shop Holiday Mess sketch directed by Kristian Mercado Figueroa (Michael Che: Shame the Devil, Taylor Tomlinson: Look at You). 

Shannon's performed stand-up at the House of Blues, the Comedy Store, the Ice House, and various hotspots around Los Angeles. Up next, you can catch her at the 2022 Laugh Riot Grrrl Comedy Festival. Maybe someday she'll perform at a Dunkin Donuts near you, but for now she hosts the Formosa Comedy show and her drag comedy show, Tight 10's!
