Islander. Dingus. Sweetheart.
Justin Shaw is a performer and writer originally from Prince Edward Island, and if you’re also from Prince Edward Island, his dad probably knows your dad.
His first solo show THE WRESTLING PLAY premiered at the 2017 Island Fringe Festival, earning the Patron’s Pick Award. It was later presented at Alberta Culture Days Wood Buffalo, St. Peter’s Courthouse Theatre Summer Season, the YMM Midnight Madness Festival, and Nextfest Arts & Culture Festival.
His follow-up show MIDNIGHT BABY premiered by Desert Island Theatre Co. at King’s Playhouse and was remounted at Harmony House. It was also presented at the Hamilton Fringe, Halifax Fringe, TEDx McGill, and at Staircase Theatre. This show will be made available on his debut album HUMAN MONEY in Summer 2022.
He has appeared on Mike Birbiglia's Working It Out Online Comedy Show, and has performed alongside Lorne Elliott, Scott Faulconbrige, and Mike MacDonald. He also hosts with Hub of the Hammer Event Planning, writes for Parton & Pearl, Maritime EDIT, and RED: The Island Storybook, hosts radio program Jokes on Hamilton on CFMU 93.3fm, and is a graduate of the National Theatre School’s Acting Program. Imagine that.

"... an undeniably effective laugh machine."
- Sean McQuaid, The Buzz
"His style was a combination of current event humor and personal storytelling that the audience enjoyed with a bit of “down home” humor we could all relate to."
