Shane Mauss makes his return to the studio along with comedian Al Jackson. We also get a call from Scott Potasnik, live from the Sex Desk out in LA.
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.

After spending several years as a 7th grade public school teacher, Al Jackson decided he was ready to pursue his dream of performing comedy. Now he delivers his edgy, hard-nosed comedy with a laid-back swagger and a giant smile. This former teacher has been seen on two different seasons of NBC's "Last Comic Standing", MTV's MVP's, "Friday Night Stand-up", and "Live at Gotham." Al Jackson on facebook.
Scott Potasnik’s adventures as a “Sexpert” started early, when, at age 23, he was hired as the fresh-faced young host and senior producer of Playboy TV’s hit series Sexcetera. For the next seven years, Scott traveled the globe reporting on every bizarre aspect of human sexuality known to man. From folks who have sex with balloons ("Looners"), to the underground brothels of Brazil, to the world’s largest outdoor swinger’s campout, “Swingstock,” all the way to Tokyo's massive fetish party, "Torture Garden," Scott has seen it all. And today, he is known as the go-to-guy when it comes exploring the comedic side of human sexuality. Scott on Facebook and twitter.
