SHANE MAUSS JOKES TO MAKE MY PARENTS PROUD TO BE RELEASED BY COMEDY CENTRAL RECORDS DIGITALLY ON MARCH 9
Comedian/writer Shane Mauss comes to COMEDY CENTRAL Records with his debut album Jokes to Make My Parents Proud. The digital album will be available on iTunes, eMusic and all other major download sites on March 9.
Shane Mauss (pronounced MOSS as on the north facing side of a tree) is one of the funniest and fastest rising comedians in the country. The album was recorded at his home club “The Comedy Club on State,” in Madison, WI in December 2009. Mauss charms the audience with his Wisconsin drawl, good nature and outrageous jokes and stories.
Originally from La Crosse, WI, Mauss moved to Boston in 2004 to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a stand-up comedian. In less than three years, Shane caught his big break when he was named Best Stand Up Comic at HBO’s prestigious US Comedy Arts Festival in 2007.
Mauss’ 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 Show,” BBC’s “The World Stands Up” and what is easily his strangest television appearance to date, Playboy TV’s “Night Calls.”
In the last year alone, Mauss 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 perform in the Sydney Comedy Festival, the New Zealand Comedy Festival and Rooftop Comedy’s Aspen Comedy Festival. Having performed all over Europe and Australia, Mauss is now an up-and-coming international headliner.
