Shane just doesn’t get it… growing up he told anyone that would listen that he wasn’t interested in work or responsibilities. As he’s gotten older he’s been consistently disappointed and confused as these things attempt to take on a larger role in his life.
After avoiding the real world in college, then doing some loafing, Shane found himself in Singapore working as an Advertising Copywriter for Mercedes-Benz. Soon he ran out of ways to write “this car goes fast” and decided to seek out endeavors that would pay him a tiny fraction of what he was making… the obvious choice was comedy.
He then completed Second City’s Conservatory and Comedy Writing programs; and in his short time in comedy appeared all across North America at clubs that include:
Bonkerz Comedy (Orlando)
Absolute Comedy (Toronto)
Yuk Yuks (Toronto)
The Comedy Studio (Boston)
In 2010 Shane moved to Chicago hoping to recreate the intro to the sit-com “Perfect Strangers”. Sadly he did not have a car or a foreign cousin, but not long after relocating he was selected as a finalist for the “Jokes on You” national comedy competition at Jokes & Notes (Chicago). He’s also been the head writer for the late night talk show “Night Cap”. Additional writing credits include the Mockumentary “Totally Untrue History of…” on Much Music (Canada’s MTV), and the live sketch shows “Yank My Cheney One More Time” & “Run GIC and the Notorious AIG.”
Through his comedy Shane takes a stand against things he has no chance of changing with jokes alone, unfortunately that is all he is willing to contribute to this world.
