About Shawna Blake
Shawna Blake, of Tulsa, has been doing standup comedy for more than 7 years now (not that 2020 counts) and storytelling since she started drinking. She has gotten to work with some very cool people, opening for Dave Attell, Jeff Ross and Michelle Wolf to name a few. She likes to describe her stage presence as calm confidence mixed with finger guns. “I think of the audience at shows as my close friends and divulge embarrassing moments, private thoughts and personal victories.”
Blake teaches communication at Tulsa Community College because she loves a captive audience. When she is not performing or teaching, she is obsessed with her dog to a degree that’s been called “terrifying” and “disturbing” by others who haven’t met him.
