Shelley is known for her comedy writing. In addition to writing sketch comedy , she is responsible for cult movies into staged parodies that then sell out audiences. Discouraged by the auditions she was being called for, Shelley decided her best bet was to write her own material that would highlight her comedic chops. In fact, it was the staged adaptation of the movie Road House (1989) that she cowrote with fellow writer Courtenay Hameister back in 2010 that was the catalyst for her production company Bad Reputation Productions.
