Still working on that hot first release.



Born in Miami and raised as an only child by a single hippie mother, Forrest Shaw got into stand-up comedy after nearly a decade of life as a marine biologist. Saving manatees and counting seagrass by day, at night Forrest dedicated himself to the open mic circuit quickly working his way into regular work with the South Florida Improvs. Forrest delivers witty and clever observations from his unorthodox life with a wry smile. He shares his own faults and failures with the audience in hopes that they too can find the lighter side of those things in life, which sometimes seem too much to bear. Forrest placed first in the 2006 South Florida New Faces Comedy Contest, was a finalist in the 2007 Carnival Comedy Challenge and was selected as a regional finalist for the 2007 Comedy Central Open Mic Fight, the 2007 Las Vegas Comedy Festival Lucky 21, and the 2008 South Beach Comedy Festival. Forrest is a regular at the South Florida Improvs. He has worked clubs and colleges all over the State of Florida, and he hosted and coordinated the longest running one-nighter in Miami at Bougainvillea’s Old Florida Tavern. Forrest has been featured in several local commercials and on CBS4 news. Catch Forrest on stage at a club near you.
