Shaun is stand-up comedian, writer, spinning instructor, Iron Man, Comrades Marathon finisher, ginger and all round nice guy. From clubs to corporate functions, on radio and on television, he has kept audiences amused with his left-of-centre take on life.
Whether he is hosting a radio show or blogging for a fitness publication, Shaun’s wacky way of viewing the world always keeps listeners and readers amused.
Shaun developed his unique sense of humour at a young age. You would too if you had bright red hair, freckles and a surname no-one can pronounce.
Despite the fact that Shaun grew up in southern Johannesburg, he has somehow transformed himself from ‘caveman to showman’, walking upright, using his opposable thumbs, making fire; and causing audiences to collapse with laughter just by being himself.
Shaun has performed in some of South Africa’s most prestigious comedy venues, and hasn’t left out some of the dodgier ones either! From Joburg to Bloem and Polokwane to Umhlanga – the man with the bizarre surname has taken his own brand of comedy around the country. A versatile act, Shaun is as comfortable talking about current affairs as he is about making human observations, including impressions as well as ‘left-of-centre’ humour.
He has an interesting background – he hosted the Wake-up Call on 90.6fm (Vaal Community Radio); DJ’ed for a wide variety of corporate clients; is a qualified spinning instructor; and currently writes weekly columns as part of his editorship of both the Cape.Town.co.za and Durbs.co.za e-zines. He is also responsible for compiling the Joburg.co.za weekly newsletter, which boasts a subscriber base of over 200,000 readers.
Shaun’s popularity as an act helped him reach the final stages of the comedy competition “Survival of the funniest.” The contest was based on audience votes, and finalists in the competition appeared on the popular comedy show Laugh Out Loud.
He has also appeared in a comedy segment on Beetroot, a magazine show on DSTV’s Channel Go! Furthermore, his material has featured on Alex Jay’s show as part of The Five o’Clock Funnies.
In addition to being a more than capable stand-up comedian, Shaun is also a talented writer. He has written for radio, magazines, online publications, including speeches for high-profile UK Government officials.
The fact that he has taken on many roles in his working career ensures that Shaun is able to effectively and humorously communicate with diverse audiences.
His approach to comedy is “a bit of something for everyone”– he never dwells on one topic for too long; is comfortable with both story telling and delivering witty one liners and good old fashioned jokes; and can easily switch between material that stretches the mind.
So, if entertainment is a priority on your event checklist, you’ll have one less thing to worry about if you book Shaun for your function.
