On Friday, December 21st, Island-born and bred comedian Justin Shaw is coming to King’s Playhouse for an evening of comedy. Offering his off-beat (and often peculiar) perspective of the world, Shaw is bringing home-spun tales of family, friends, and, unfortunately, romance.
King’s County residents may remember Shaw as the lad who washed dishes at the Whim Inn at Poole’s Corner one million years ago. Island audiences may recognize Shaw from Charlottetown stages, having performed with Popalopalots Live Improv Comedy and Vagabond Productions. In the past three years, Shaw has been involved in a number of successful Island Fringe Festival productions, including Nutshell, The Wrestling Play, and Half A Star.
Since leaving home, Shaw has performed around Montreal, earning the Triple Crown Comedy Award at Montreal’s Comedyworks. After moving to Fort McMurray to work in the arts (yes, you read that correctly) Shaw has had the privilege of hosting the Wood Buffalo Excellence In Arts Awards, and opening for Mike MacDonald.
Performing in King’s County holds a special place in Shaw’s heart.
“PEI is my favourite place in the world,” says Shaw. “Audiences and artists alike have such a shared love of storytelling that keeps communities and families together with a stronger sense of identity. I’m performing at the King’s Playhouse hall to connect to my community roots, and so my parents don’t have to drive over the bridge in case it snows.”
Come to King’s Playhouse performance hall on Friday, December 21st at 8:00pm ($20.00 plus tax) for an unforgettable evening of comedy and home-spun stories performed by Prince Edward Island’s sentimental dingus, Justin Shaw.
