“Last month’s QUEEN tribute was an amazing experience and this month’s tribute to the music of The ‘80s: Unplugged – was very familiar territory for me,” says Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian. “The support of the community and the performers here in Las Vegas has truly inspired me to take ‘Mondays Dark’ to a new level each month so that we can continue to raise much needed funds for local charities.”

Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. “Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity to raise money each month for that charity, between ticket sales and silent auction items.
