Player Spotlight: Kevin “Shaquille” O’Shea

Posted on 11. Mar, 2011 by in Blog, CSz Culture

Kevin Patrick Francis O’Shea is a NorCal native, born & raised in San Francisco. He holds both American & Irish citizenship, which means he has two passports and has a hidden pot of gold. He’s also a colossal ‘tech geek’ and is over 40 years old, which means he understands Twitter but doesn’t see the point of it. Kevin is also married (sorry, ladies) and a dad, saying he “had a kid back before ComedySportz players having kids was cool.*”

Years of Catholic school and a steady diet of George Carlin, Steve Martin, Bill Cosby and Monty Python gave Kevin an early appreciation for comedy. He first encountered ComedySportz at a friend’s birthday party in 1996 and started taking workshops soon thereafter.

Kevin has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business & Information Systems, the culmination of 10 years, 4 majors, and 6 different university careers. For almost two decades, he’s worked at Apple – the company who put the lowercase ‘i’ into modern iMarketing with so many different iProducts. Do not ask him when the new iPhone is coming out.

Kevin casts no shadow.

Player since: 1997

Favorite Game(s): Chain Murder, Rap Madrigal

Favorite CSz Moment: “Either the time I cracked two ribs in a show, or the time I broke my arm in a show – definitely one of those.”

Insider Statz: One of ComedySportz’s more ‘seasoned’ (i.e. ‘old’) players, Kevin is one of our few remaining sources of clever references from the 70′s & 80′s, which are always appreciated by those in the audience old enough to understand them. If you are especially lucky, you may see him ‘dance’ in a show.

*in 2010/2011, the CSz SJ family welcomed 3 new babies from various playerz, within the span of 3 months.
