With appearances on TOSH.0, The Late Late show, The Smoking Gun Presents, Conan and his own half hour special on Comedy Central Jay has come a long way since he moved to Los Angeles in 2000. After flunking out of college, then finally getting accepted back after many attempts, Jay threw away his diploma to pursue a career in Stand Up comedy. After living in a condemned house for 14 months, I mean who hasn't, Jay started opening for comedy greats such as Nick Swardson, Daniel Tosh and Pablo Fransisco. He soon became known as a comedian with a whacky, original voice who tends to get a little weird. Since those early days Jay has continued climbing the ranks with multiple TV appearances, many internet short films and his first album, "Self-Diagnosed". His voice continues to grow as he has delved into the world of interacting with strangers and creating conflict with people he doesn't know. Jay is a fantastic storyteller, showcased weekly on his podcast, "The Crabfeast" on Jay Mohr's Fake Mustache Studios. With TV projects in development, be sure to catch Jay now before he ignores everyone...forever...seriously...he will.
So far in 2013 Shane Mauss has had his fifth appearance on Conan, recorded his first one hour special which will be out in early 2014, performed his solo show for a full month in the world's largest comedy festival The Edinburgh Comedy Festival, and just recorded a TV spot in Australia at The Just For Laughs: Stand-Up Series at The Sydney Opera House.
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.
Shane has been in several comedy festivals around the world including The Just For Laughs Festival Comedy Festival in Montreal, Sydney & Chicago, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, The Comedy Central South Beach Comedy Festival, The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in Kilkenny, Ireland, The Sydney Comedy Festival, and The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival.
