Enjoy an evening jam-packed with bits and banter, lively songs, random trivia, mind-blowing magic tricks and the occasional pronouncement of poetry! Harkening back to the days of the late-night talk TV of Carson, Letterman and Leno, The Shaw Variety Show features a core cast dedicated to hijinks and hilarity and complemented by a different mystery guest at every performance. See it once, see it again, see it often! Guaranteed to be a different show each time.
