Shane Mauss got the idea to become a stand-up comedian when he was only eight years old. But knowing his small-town Wisconsin home wasn't exactly a hot bed for comedy, Mauss moved to Boston (when he was older than eight) where he attended some classes and began honing his material. Since then he's gone on to win the Best Stand Up Comic of 2007 award at the Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and he's made appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", Comedy Central and Playboy TV.
