Cowichan Performing Arts Centre and Gee Dan Productions present

Shaun Majumder with special guest Matt Wright

Shaun Majumder is one of Canada’s top comedians. A cast member on CBC's This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Shaun provides viewers with a brilliant mix of parody, sketch comedy, and scathing editorial commentary. Equally at home on stage as he is in front of the camera, his incessant wit never ceases to entertain.

A Gemini Award-winning actor/comedian Shaun Majumder hails from Burlington, Newfoundland (population 350). A former member of the famous sketch comedy group The Bob Room, Shaun’s clever and unique style of comedy earned him Gemini nominations for The Comedy Network special On the Edge With Shaun Majumder, as well as the Halifax Comedy Festival.

He has starred in the Farrelly Brothers Fox comedy Unhitched in 2008 before his Comedy Central Presents special debuted; he’s since appeared on 24 and Cedric the Entertainer Presents. His documentary series Majumder Manor told the story of his dream to transform his home town into a high-end, sustainable tourist destination and ran for 2 seasons on the W Network. Film credits include Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, The Ladies Man, Pushing Tin, Purpose and Bob Funk, and he’s hosted the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival TV series for three seasons.
