Get ready to laugh with one of the rock’s favourite sons. Shaun Majumder makes a return visit to Cowichan with his unique brand of adult comedy. As he says, “This is not the CBC.”
Gemini award-winner Shaun Majumder is an actor, writer, comedian, and social entrepreneur from the small town of Burlington, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. He starred in the Farrelly Brothers Fox comedy Unhitched in 2008 before his Comedy Central Presents special debuted; he’s since appeared on 24, Cedric the Entertainer Presents, and was one of the principals and lead cast members on This Hour Has 22 Minutes for 14 years. His documentary series Majumder Manor told the story of his dream to transform his hometown into a high-end, sustainable tourist destination and ran for two 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.
Opening act: Peter Hudson. Peter is a mainstay of the Vancouver Island comedy scene who has entertained audiences throughout western Canada. Known to comedians across the country as the mayor of Nanaimo, Peter taps into daily life to bring you hilarious takes on work, family, and his own quirks and misadventures. His comedy is raw and colourful, whether he’s describing growing up as a redhead, working blue collar jobs, or “living green” (in more than one way) on the west coast. Known for his ability to rev up a crowd with his high energy, exuberant, and always entertaining comedy, Peter will get you laughing and won’t let you stop until he thinks you’ve had enough.
