The Shannon brothers left their large Houston family years ago to pursue careers as network television comedy writers. T. Sean, who lives in Manhattan, writes sketches for Saturday Night Live, and Charlie, who hangs his hat in L.A., has written for Sinbad. When the boys return home for the holidays, they make the most of their reunions, getting together for joint shows. In fact, their Christmas act has lasted so many years, it's become a tradition of its own.
