Shawn D. Stevenson affectionately known as “Jay Stevens” has been a professional comedian since 2002. Growing up, he was always known as a hilarious outgoing character by friends, family, colleagues and those he would meet on a first encounter. Having a passion to make people laugh, he surprisingly was not seeking a career in the comedy industry. It was not until he gave his life to the Lord in 1997 that he felt the yearning to share this “gift” to entertain people. His very first show was at a church “Solomon’s Temple COGIC” in 1999 where he realized that laughter is a healing medicine. Since then he has been very successful at making people laugh from the church to comedy clubs. His clean comedy style reaches all audiences. Jay Stevens believes that sowing the gift of laughter is the best gift one can give.
