Shaun Majumder Newfoundland Comedian
AFTER DINNER COMEDIAN
Shaun Majumder Bio
In just a few short years, Shaun Majumder has blossomed into one of the Canadian comedy scene’s top young stand-ups. As a cast member of the Gemini Award winning political satire This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Majumder provides viewers with a volatile mix of news parody, sketch comedy and scathing editorial commentary.
Majumder’s material is slice-of-life. He refers to everything from his family to holidays or goes completely alternative with free-form association. His greatest weapon so far is his physical work. He has an outstanding range and is adroit at creating intriguing characters and playing them off each other. Majumder takes his time on stage and doesn’t rush his punch lines. He allows the audience to follow his lead.
A former member of the famous sketch comedy group The Bob Room, Majumder’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. Other television appearances include The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. In 2002, he received the Canadian Comedy Award for Pretty Funny Stand Up.
Majumder is proud and honoured to have joined the prestigious list of comedians who have performed at the renowned Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada. He has hosted numerous CBC Just For Laughs Television Specials and has appeared as a series regular on Cedric The Entertainer Presents for FOX Television, as well as guest appeared on Robson Arms, Less Than Kind and Da Kink in My Hair. His feature films include Harold & Kumar, Ladies Man, Pushing Tin, Purpose, Unhitched and Bob Funk.
In July 2011, Shaun began work creating “Majumder Manor”, a house in his hometown of Burlington, Newfoundland that when completed will be a modern, upscale fully sustainable Eco-luxe Inn. A 12-part documentary on Majumder Manor’s construction airs on the W Network.
