Born in Miami and raised as an only child by a single hippie mother, Forrest Shaw got into stand-up comedy after a decade of life as a marine biologist. Saving manatees and counting seagrass by day, at night, Forrest dedicated himself to comedy, quickly working his way into regular club work. The influence of his former life as a biologist is evident in his material. Forrest delivers witty and clever anecdotes of 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. He also isn’t fond of stupid people. Life is complicated and it shouldn’t be. We have created all of this stress and aggravation so the healthiest thing to do is make fun of ourselves and laugh about it. He was in the 2012/2011/2010 South Beach Comedy Festival, the 2011 Laugh Detroit festival, the 2010 New York Underground Comedy Festival, the 2010 World Series of Comedy, the 2009 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival showcase, and Sleepless Night 2009. Forrest was a finalist for the 2007 Comedy Central Open Mic Fight and the 2007 Las Vegas Comedy Festival Lucky 21 showcase. He was a finalist for the 2007 Carnival Comedy Challenge and the winner of the 2006 South Florida New Faces Comedy Contest. Forrest is a member of The All Organic Comedy Tour. Forrest was featured in a commercial for the Florida Marlins 2009 campaign. He has also appeared in several other television ads, radio ads, on CBS4 news, and WSVN (Deco Drive).website: Forrestshaw.net, twitter: @forrest_shaw
