Fresh off his fifth appearance on Conan, Shane is about to record his first one hour special before heading to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland to do a month run of his solo show at the world's largest arts festival.
Originally from La Crosse, WI, Shane Mauss moved to Boston in 2004 (at the supple, tender age of 23) to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a standup comedian. In less than three years, Shane caught his big break when he was awarded Best Standup Comic at HBO's US Comedy Arts Festival in 2007.
Comedy Central Presents: Shane Mauss debuted in 2010 and was accompanied by his first CD Jokes To Make My Parents Proud with Comedy Central Records, which was named in the Top 10 Albums of 2010 by Punchline Magazine.
Shane's other TV credits now include two appearances on Conan on TBS, three appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Showtime's Comics Without Borders, two appearances on BBC's The World Stands Up, and in what is easily his strangest television appearance to date: Playboy TV's Night Calls.
You may also know him as a regular on The Bob and Tom Show.
Shane has been in several comedy festivals around the world including The Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, The Comedy Central South Beach Comedy Festival, The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in Kilkenny, Ireland, The Sydney Comedy Festival, andThe Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival.
