T. Sean Shannon

T. Sean Shannon is a comedy writer originally from Houston, Texas.

As a writer for "Saturday Night Live" he won an Emmy Award in 2002 (nominated in 2001 & 2003) and a WGA Award in 2001 (nominated in 2001, 2002 and 2003). He is the writer and creator of the sketch "Bear City", which deals with a city completely inhabited by anthropomorphic bears due to a meteor crash. In July 2008, Shannon revealed that he has written a "Bear City" movie, which he is hoping to shoot in Fall 2008.cite web | last=Armstrong | first=Josh E | publisher=Armstrong Interviews | title= T.

He was also the subject of controversy and political unrest at "SNL", thanks to a joke he told in "The Aristocrats". (Penn Jillette mentions this incident in the commentary for the film, but does not mention the show, instead stating that T. Sean works for a popular network comedy show.)

He directed and co-wrote the feature film "Harold" that is set to be released in July 2008.
