Episode 056: Shannon Gillespie - Jokes And Jabs

Tue Mar 07 2017 (42:00)

This week on Uncontained I talk to Shannon Gillespie. Shannon is a MMA fighter and a stand-up comedian based out of Iowa. I know that is not a combination you hear about every day, and that is why he is the perfect guest for Uncontained. We talk about how he got his start in MMA and comedy, how they are similar, and how he deals with hecklers in both. You can see Shannon on Donzillia’s Comedy Showcase on the CW in eastern Iowa or check it out on YouTube. Here is the link to Shannon’s episode https://youtu.be/i-WLK-7JdVs. I had not talked to Shannon since I left Iowa and moved to California. It was fun catching up with him and learning how he Lives uncontained.
