Both are correct but I think shown is more common.

You are incorrect.

The past perfect of "show" is "shown." Show, showed, shown. They will show up. They showed up yesterday. They had already shown up.

Showed and shown can't both be used correctly in that sentence.

It would be "If he had shown up, we would have had a full house".

you are right ma'am or sir.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I disagree.

In the two sentences, the correct use is "shown" imo. The second sentence should have the "had" removed before the word "showed".

If he showed up....not "if he had showed up"

The second sentence is incorrect in its current form I believe.

Just my .02 though....
Did you check the link fivejedjon provided? "Had showed" is an acceptable alternative.

He has not showed up. He has not shown up
