Justin Shaw is a comedian and storyteller originally from Prince Edward Island (and if you're also from Prince Edward Island, his dad probably knows your dad.) He has performed on JFL42 at Just For Laughs Toronto, has appeared on Mike Birbiglia's Working It Out comedy show, has opened for Fortune Feimster, while touring regularly with Yuk Yuks across Canada. He develops his own solo shows that are unique blend of theatre, standup, and storytelling, with his work being featured on his TV series Tales From Island Boy on Bell FibeTV1. Shaw is no stranger to the Hamilton Fringe - in 2022 he presented his acclaimed solo show The 70 Mile Yard Sale, which told the story his Prince Edward Island home, and in 2023 he presented A Creature Is Stirring, which is the painfully true story of his first Christmas living in Hamilton. An avid writer, he is also a working playwright with his works produced by Feast Dinner Theatres. His debut comedy album Human Money showcases his down-home yet outrageous sense of humour, and can be heard on Sirius XM. He enjoys living in Hamilton with his wife, Diana, and his dog, Phoebe.
