Shaun Jones is funny, talented, and on his way to Pensacola to headline PHP Entertainment’s latest edition of Jokes and Quotes on Sunday, June 5th. As an international performer, Jones has been a professional comedian for awhile. Jones shares, “I’m an old school dude. I’ve been doing comedy for 23 years. I was on several seasons of BET’s ‘Comicview,’ Martin Lawrence’s ‘1st Amendment Stand Up,’ and Robert Townsend’s ‘Partners in Crime Next Generation.’ I was in the movie ‘Shade’ with Jamie Fox and Sylvester Stallone. And recently I was on ID TV’s ‘Your Worst Nightmare.”
This weekend’s trip to Pensacola will not be his first time in the area. Jones continues, “I love the (Pensacola) area. It’s good to come back.” When Jones isn’t touring the country, making a movie, working on a tv show, or being bossed by a three-year-old, you can also find him on the radio. Jones is part of Real Women Radio’s Grown & Dating hosted by TJ and V.
Jokes and Quotes will also have comedian Bill Fowler and poet Smash. Bill Fowler is a Pensacola native who specializes in clean observational humor. Smash hails from Milton, FL and is a rapper and a lyricist. Jones and Smash helped PHP productions launch the first Jokes and Quotes at Vinyl Music Hall in 2015.
Hudson will be the host for Jokes and Quotes. You’re invited to come for the free entertainment and feast and imbibe at Five Sisters. The show begins at 5:30 pm. Expect laughter and a great time.
