Canada's very own #1 Musical Comedian
A multitalented entertainer from Canada's West Coast, Kenny enjoys a well deserved reputation for drawing his audiences into a wacky world of high-powered comedy and music, innovative skits and hilarious one-liners.
His performances are liberally laced with crafty impressions, hysterical comedy and incredible musical tributes to his client's favorite entertainers. He integrates the hits of contemporary musical artists from the past three decades with humorous sketches of Dr. Ruth, Red Green, Jack Nicholson, Christopher Lloyd and many more.
Kenny also brings together some unlikely duos on stage, Johnny Cash and Dwight Yoakum harmonizing on a duet. As far as we know, Kenny is the only entertainer capable of becoming two celebrity personalities in a single breath while charming his audience with his innovative talents.
This fast paced mixture of comedy and music has put Kenny on the main stage with some of country entertainment's highest stars, ranging from Brooks and Dunn and Toby Keith to Brad Paisley and Deanna Carter.
His superb showmanship has also won him the BC Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year Award no less than four times. He was also selected to open the CCMA Awards Show in Vancouver, Ottawa, Edmonton and Hamilton.
In 2001, a tour of Canadian Peacekeeping bases in Eritrea, Africa, in 2003; another tour in Dubai, Saudi Arabia and one to Afghanistan in 2005 adds yet more highlights to his versatile career. Kenny has since added a show tour to the North Pole and two more to Afghanistan to his credits.
He is in constant demand to deliver the opening entertainment at country music galas across Canada and the United States. That he has been the Master of Ceremonies for Countryfest in Dauphin, Manitoba (one of Canada's larger music festivals) for fourteen years is a testimonial to Kenny's strength and consistency.
Along with the many professional awards that he has earned over the years, Kenny also has a loyal following of fans from across the country and consistently generates standing ovations from his audiences. Many audiences have been enthralled with his ability to present songs and stories about lifestyles and communities across the continent.
In April, 2011, Kenny was inducted into the BC Country Music Association Hall of Fame
A master of the live stage, Kenny is constantly updating his material and integrates his audiences industry and interests into his live performances in a fashion that has endeared him to his clients again and again. Audiences are awed by Kenny's ability to entertain children, families or adults, equally as well, and he has the track record to prove it.
With a reputation for hysterically funny presentations and just a touch of the wild side, Kenny Shaw is a guaranteed success at any event!
