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 stand up comedian. In less than three years, Shane caught his big break when he was awarded Best Stand Up Comic at HBO's prestigious US Comedy Arts Festival in 2007. Shane's current TV credits include three appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, an appearance on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Showtime's Comics Without Borders, regular appearances on The Bob and Tom Radio and TV show, BBC's The World Stands Up (two appearances), and what is easily his strangest television appearance to date, Playboy TV's Night Calls. In the last year alone Shane has performed in The Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, The Comedy Central South Beach Comedy Festival in Miami, and The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in Kilkenny, Ireland. In the first half of 2010, he will also be performing in The Sydney Comedy Festival, The New Zealand Comedy Festival and Rooftop Comedy's Aspen Comedy Festival. Having performed all over Europe and Australia, Shane is now an up and coming international headliner.
