MIGHTY DUCKS’ Shaun Weiss Celebrates 4 Years Of Sobriety

By Movieguide® Contributor

MIGHTY DUCKS star Shaun Weiss recently celebrated four years of sobriety with a special comedy event featuring other ’90s child stars. 

“The best Night! Thanks old friends for coming out,” Weiss wrote on Instagram, referring to SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH’s Nate Richert, THE SECRET WORLD OF ALEX star Natanya Ross, AMERICAN PIE’s Thomas Ian Nicholas, THE SANDLOT star Marty York and many others. 

Comedian Ryan Talmo served as the event’s host and wrote about how powerful the night was in an Instagram post. 

“Last night was something unbelievably amazing. An emotional night of a Celebration of @shaunweiss being 4 Years Clean!” he wrote. “we all came together because we love Shaun and to see him healthy and living his life at his fullest. Every year is a celebration! Because you’re bringing everyone together.”

Weiss often talks about his sobriety journey and how proud he is of the work he’s done. 

“I am getting a second chance at life,” he told NewsNation. “I’m totally aware of that, and I tried to never take that for granted.”

Weiss continued, “[My sobriety is] really the thing I’m proudest of. I’ve had a lot of accomplishments, but this recovery thing is really my proudest accomplishment…Being able to look at the trauma, I went through the lens of trying to be creative, and to do comedy has just been a game changer. And people find my story inspiring so I just kind of tell my story, and I try to do that — in a funny way, though. It’s fulfilling for me.”

He’s even started acting again. Weiss recently appeared in JESUS REVOLUTION, which was nominated for Movieguide®’s Epiphany Prize and Best Movie For Mature Audiences awards. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Weiss’ recovery:

MIGHTY DUCKS star Shaun Weiss is hopeful that his story of addiction and recovery will help others who are struggling with the same issues…

Weiss lost his possessions, including his cell phone, which led him to lose contact with friends and family. He made no real efforts to reach out because of the shame he felt from his addiction. 

“It’s a big reason for why people don’t reach out for help. When we’re in our addiction we tend to burn people,” he explained. 

The turning point came when, after his 2020 arrest, a judge ordered him into a recovery program. Weiss said this program saved his life. 

Now, he’s hoping that his story will inspire others who are also fighting to get away from drugs and alcohol. 

“I’m really hoping my story can be useful, so it’s not just a sad thing that happened,” Weiss said.
