Raised in rural Newfoundland Canada, Shaun Majumder has been a performer his entire life. After leaving his hometown of Burlington (Population: 350) and moving to Mississauga, Ontario at the age of thirteen, Shaun acted in his first stage play in the 8th Grade (Grade 8 in Canada). Immediately he was hooked. He continued theatre throughout high school, winning several awards at festivals for his many performances. But according to the adults around him, there was no future in this acting thing. So, Shaun followed the guidance of his teachers and did what most did; went to university with the hopes of a career finding him.

After one year of partying and taking general arts classes, Shaun 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 TV and in 2003 he joined the cast of CBC’s This Hour Has 22 minutes where he spent seventeen seasons.

For the past twenty-plus years, Shaun has found success on both sides of the border. A few noteworthy performances include his work as Detective Vik Mahajan in the ABC’s critically acclaimed crime drama, Detroit 1-8-7. His role as Andrew Palmer on NBC’s The Firm starring alongside Josh Lucas and Juliette Lewis. As Hassan Numair on FOX’s 24. His comedy roles include starring in the Sketch Comedy Series Cedric The Entertainer Presents, The Farrelly Brother’s Unhitched, ABC’s Married Not Dead, NBC’s Nevermind Nirvana, and CBC’s Hatching Matching and Dispatching.

He most recently starred alongside Harold Perrineau, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Eion Bailey, in the EPIX Sci Fi/Horror series FROM playing Father Khatri.

Shaun resides in Los Angeles with his wife Shelby Fenner, his two daughters Mattis Maple and Eslyn Willow and their two Boston terriers Jazzy and Freddy.

Frank started working for some of the top photographers in the country after finishing college. One thing became very clear, Frank had a knack for entertaining the crew on these shoots. Whether it was telling stories about his family, imitating the models, or making fun of himself, Frank always had everyone laughing. Photographers began to hire Frank for not only his photography ability but also his entertaining ability, sometimes at the request of the clients.

It was on one of these shoots that one of the models started telling Frank that he should take his comedy to the clubs. Frank began contemplating it. After visiting a few local comedy clubs he decided to give it a try.

On March 18, 1997, Frank stepped on stage for the first time as a stand-up comic. He didn’t tell many people about it and there were just a few select friends in the audience. He was on stage for only five minutes, but those five minutes told everyone in the room that this guy truly had something special.

He continued working amateur and open mic nights in Toronto, constantly building his material and starting to create a buzz. In less than a year he would perform in his first professional spot. Soon he was headlining at the top comedy clubs in Toronto and then taking his act to many other cities across Canada. He continued honing his craft, graduating from improv classes at Second City and still takes many advanced improv and acting classes.
