Who is Justin Shaw?


Justin Shaw is a comedian and storyteller originally from Cardigan, Prince Edward Island (and if you're also from Cardigan, his dad probably knows your dad.)


Fusing comedy and storytelling, Shaw has toured his solo shows across Canada, as well crafting comedy plays for Feast Dinner Theatres.


Development of his solo work was documented on his TV series Tales From Island Boy on Bell FibeTV1.


He has appeared on Just For Laughs Toronto, Mike Birbiglia's Working It Out comedy show, has opened for Fortune Feimster, and tours regularly with Yuk Yuks across Ontario.


He is a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada (Acting 2017) and proud alumnus of Vagabond Productions from the University of Prince Edward Island.



Shaw's debut comedy album Human Money showcases his down-home yet outrageous sense of humour, and can be heard on Just For Laughs Canada on Sirius XM.


Solo Shows

the 70 Mile
Yard Sale

2024 Charlottetown Festival

Inspired by Prince Edward Island's 70 Mile Coastal Yard Sale, comedian and storyteller Justin Shaw shares a story about a madcap journey across Prince Edward Island to retrieve a lost family heirloom. Equal parts funny and heartfelt, this tall tale is about family, friendship, and finding more than what you bargained for.

"Justin Shaw brings a friendly, energetic style of storytelling to his performance. He never misses a beat, and yet never seems to go too quickly either. He delivers wit and humour... and has the audience laughing every time. Watching him perform feels like sitting down with a long-time friend, swapping stories over lunch or dinner." - Beyond James
