In a few short years, Shaun Majumder has blossomed into one of Canada’s top comedians. As a former cast member on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Majumder provided viewers with a volatile mix of parody, sketch comedy, and scathing editorial commentary. Equally at home on stage as he is in front of the camera, Majumder’s incessant wit never ceases to entertain.
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 2011, Majumder began 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 is set to air on W Network.
