Michael turns ventriloquism upside-down with his original puppets and creative routines; vaudeville ventriloquism for a new generation.
Michael is a talented ventriloquist, puppeteer and comedian with a lifetime of experience in this unique field of entertainment. He has worked with Kelly Clarkson, The Muppets and Boyz to Men. He has headlined on the world’s most luxurious cruise lines; Disney, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian and Crystal. Corporate events; Rainbow Room, Rockefeller Center-New York, The Bellevue Grand Ballroom-Philadelphia. Comedy clubs and Festivals; Hong Kong Comedy Festival, Catch a Rising Star-New York, Yuk Yuks- Canada. Shows at luxury resorts Atlantis and Sandals in the Caribbean.
Michael took his talents to a new level when he appeared on the hugely successful television show, America’s Got Talent, receiving glowing reviews from the celebrity judges. He has written and performed on the award winning television show “Kids in the Firehall” (Bronze Apple AwardWinner) and is the star of the reality television pilot “The Dummy Test”.
Shawn Hogan was born and raised on PEI, and he spent time living in Calgary and Toronto before moving back to the Island at the start of the pandemic. Among other things, Shawn is a writer, producer, performer and comedian. He is also the Executive Director of the PEI Writers’ Guild. Before making the shift into the world of performance, Shawn spent 15 years working in the trades.
With no formal comedic training and a lifetime of funny-making behind him (and that sprinkle of East-coast humour), Shawn started to find himself on the stage of comedy clubs when he lived in Calgary. He underwent intensive and immersive self-study when he lived there by attending as many comedy shows as he could. With the foundation in his pocket, Shawn moved to Toronto where his commitment and dedication to comedy continued. Shawn has been on popular comedy stages such as Just for Laughs and Yuk Yuks. He recently opened for Canadian comedian Gerry Dee at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, and he has an extensive background in comedic performance.
Shawn has not only shared his own comedy across Canada and here at home, he also has brought many comedians to the Island and is encouraging of new, upcoming comics on PEI.
