Justin Shaw is a writer and entertainer originally from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Shaw melds his theatre background and love of storytelling into an unforgettable comedy experience that is equal parts foolish yet intelligent, outrageous yet relatable, and eccentric yet genuine. Much of his material centres around stories about his parents, leaving home, and finding his way in the world.
Featured at Edmonton’s Nextfest Arts and Culuture Festival, Island Fringe Festival and various clubs and theatres around Canada, Shaw delivers a rich and ridiculous comedy experience.
High-End Bootleg: An Evening of Comedy with Justin Shaw
High-End Bootleg is a bootleg recording of An Evening of Comedy with Justin Shaw on January 4th, 2020 at Bar1911 as part of their After Hours Series. This is what has become of Canadian comedy - comedians are now releasing their own bootlegs. This thirty-minute recording is a sample of a fun evening of entertainment performed before a sold-out audience in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. It is an archive of a material written over the course of six years, and proof that Justin Shaw is a goddamn fool. This recording is best paired with two or three glasses of wine.
