Alan Shane Lewis

Alan Shane Lewis is a comedian, actor and writer based in Toronto, Canada. He is the co-host of CBC’s THE GREAT CANADIAN BAKING SHOW, for which he earned a Canadian Screen Award nomination alongside Ann Pornel.

From his early beginnings as a short filmmaker, he has had a constant passion for writing and creating comedy in all its forms. As a standup he has performed at the world-renowned Just for Laughs Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, NBC's Stand Up for Diversity, Toronto Sketchfest, headlined Yuk Yuk’s, Canada's oldest comedy club chain, and appeared in the CTV Comedy Channel series, ROAST BATTLE CANADA.

Lewis regularly appears on CBC’s BECAUSE NEWS and NBA TV, and has written for CBC Comedy. He’s also the host of Shopify’s YouTube series, Curious Business and co-host of the podcast, Do They Deserve Love? He is an alumnus of The Second City.

Known for his high-energy and cheerful disposition, Lewis’ comedy is inspired by his experience being an outsider hiding in plain sight. Case in point: his name is so white it needs to wear sunscreen. His work touches on everything from his lived experience as a Black man in Canada to talking to dogs on the TTC. 

When he’s not performing, you can often find him on the court dunking basketballs, playing video games on Twitch or attempting to TikTok.
