Forrest Shaw is not fond of stupid people. Lucky for him there is stand-up comedy, the perfect way to vent his frustrations while also sharing his own faults and failures with the audience. Opening up about his gambling addiction, struggles with health, and his life growing up in Miami raised as an only child by his single hippie mother, Forrest delivers his stand-up with an intriguingly unique perspective on life. He became a comic after a decade of life as a marine biologist. Saving manatees and counting seagrass by day, at night, he dedicated himself to comedy, quickly working his way into regular club work and eventually having to retire from his career as a biologist. Forrest Shaw is a sharp, cynical critic of our shortcomings as a species, and points out these observations with precision in his hard-hitting, quick-witted act.

Forrest Shaw made his television debut on Conan in 2014 and appeared on Gotham Comedy LIVE on AXS TV in early 2015. He has performed in numerous festivals such as, Comedy Central’s South Beach Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, Big Sky Comedy Festival, New York Underground Comedy Festival, World Series of Comedy, & the Comedy Central Open Mic Fight and was awarded 2013’s Ultimate Miami Comedian. Forrest is featured in season 2 of the FX show Legit and has also appeared on The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central as well as Animal Planet.  In 2018 Forrest joined the writing team on The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central and is also featured as the co-host for The Jm Jefferies Show Podcast.
