Touring comedian Shaun Majumder to appear at theatre in Harriston this March

HARRISTON – Love is no joke, but comedian Shaun Majumder finds a way to make it funny. 

Majumder, an alumnus of This Hour has 22 Minutes, is bringing The Love Tour to the Harriston Town Hall Theatre on March 25, 2023.

The tour will also take Majumder to the Wingham Town Hall Theatre for a show on March 23.

In addition to This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Majumder has worked on YTV as a host, at the Just For Laughs comedy festival, and appeared in television shows such as Detroit 1-8-7, The Firm, and 24. His new horror series From recently premiered on Paramount Plus in Canada.

Raised in rural Newfoundland, Majumder has been a performer his entire life. 

After leaving his hometown of Burlington, Newfoundland (Pop 350) and moving to Mississauga, Ontario at the age of 13, he acted in his first stage play in Grade 8. Immediately he was hooked. He continued theatre throughout high school, winning several awards at festivals for his many performances. 

However, according to the adults around him, there was no future in acting, so Majumder followed the guidance of his teachers and went to university with the hopes of a career finding him.

After one year of partying and taking general arts classes, he quickly realized his true passion was acting, so he abandoned his safety net and went for it.

He found early success as a standup comedian and host, landing his first gigs with YTV (Canada’s Nickelodeon) as a host/PJ for five years, along with CBC’s Just For Laughs comedy series. He continued to book small roles in film and television and in 2003 he Joined the cast of CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes where he spent 17 seasons.

He currently stars alongside Harold Perrineau, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Eion Bailey, in the EPIX Sci Fi/Horror series From playing Father Khatri.
