In a few short years, Gemini Award-winning Actor/Comedian 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 24, Robson Arms, Less Than Kind and Da Kink in My Hair. His feature films include Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, The Ladies Man, Pushing Tin, Purpose, the Farrelly Brothers’ Fox comedy Unhitched, and Bob Funk.
Majumder also starred in his documentary series, Majumder Manor, which told the story of his dreams to transform his home town into a high-end, sustainable tourist destination. It ran for two seasons on the W Network.
