A Gemini award-winning actor/comedian, Shaun most recently played Andrew Palmer on the NBC/Global Television series The Firm, starring Josh Lucas and Juliette Lewis, and in 2010 starred as Det. Vik Mahajan in the critically acclaimed drama series Detroit 1-8-7 on ABC.

Finding success on both sides of the border, Majumder has starred in the Farrelly Brothers comedy Unhitched, as well as roles on 24 and Cedric the Entertainer Presents on Fox.

Last year, HBO’s feature documentary Every Word is Absolutely True followed Shaun as he embarked on his first national standup tour, garnering critical praise for its candid look beyond the public persona to reveal a more intimate and complex side.

In May 2014, Shaun’s documentary series Majumder Manor begins its second season on the W Network in Canada. Majumder Manor revolves around his dream to transform his hometown of Burlington, Newfoundland (population 350) into a high end, sustainable tourist destination.

He currently splits his time between Los Angeles, Halifax and Newfoundland.
