With only a decade of on-stage experience, Shane Mauss has achieved a Master's education in stand-up comedy. He started telling jokes in 2004 and made two appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien within his first three years. His first album, Jokes to Make My Parents Proud, was named one of Punchline's Top 10 Comedy Albums of 2010. He currently co-hosts "Double Date" with April Macie and has a new stand-up special in post-production.
Shane and I sat down in The Purple Room in Winnipeg, MB during his run of shows at Rumor's Comedy Club. The conversation covered racist cops, doomed relationships, and the power of the human brain. It was a feel-good kind of chat.
