Alan Shane Lewis

Alan, Shane Lewis

Alan Shane Lewis is a comedian, actor and writer based in Toronto, Canada and also the co-host of THE GREAT CANADIAN BAKING SHOW, for season 4 and 5.

From his early beginnings as a short filmmaker, he has had a constant passion for writing and creating comedy in all its forms. As a standup he has performed at the world-renowned Just for Laughs Festival, NBC's Stand Up for Diversity, Toronto Sketchfest and headlined Yuk Yuk’s, Canada's oldest comedy club chain. Lewis has appeared on CBC’s “Because News” and NBA TV and has written for CBC Comedy. 

He is an alumni of The Second City. He’s also the host of Shopify’s YouTube series, Curious Business and co-host of the podcast, Do They Deserve Love? 

Known for his high-energy and cheerful disposition, Lewis’ comedy is inspired by his experience being an outsider hiding in plain sight. Case in point: his name is so white it needs to wear sunscreen. His work touches on everything from his lived experience as a Black man in Canada to talking to dogs on the TTC. 

When he’s not performing, you can often find him on the court dunking basketballs, playing video games on Twitch or attempting to TikTok.
