Default Ship Comedian Killed in St. Thomas

Just read that Blair Shannon, a Cincinnati resident who performed frequently on Ship and had just worked this week on Jewel of the Seas and was to work next week on Voyager, was shot and killed in his hotel room in St. Thomas. He apparently surprised a robber in the room, who shot Blair once in the Stomach. Just caught on the local news here as he was a resident. I'd seen him on Tv a few times over the years but heard he was very popular in the cruise industry. Sad story.

Oh man. He's a black guy, right? If so, he was so funny. How sad!

Yes, can you describe him? I worked with a lot of ship comedians myself.

This is actually about a year old news

What's really cool is that a lot of RCI's entertainers pitched in to cover his dates for the year - and gave the paycheck for those gigs to his daughters fund.
