Originally from Wisconsin, Shane Mauss caught his first break when he was awarded ‘Best Stand-Up” at The HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in 2007. This led to his TV debut and first of five appearances on Conan. Since that time he’s been on Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, has had a Comedy Central Presents, a Netflix special ‘Mating Season’, and most recently released an album inspired by breaking both of his feet in a hiking mishap called ‘My Big Break’ which spent time at #1 on the comedy iTunes charts. Shane is a regular guest on popular podcasts such as You Made It Weird, Bertcast, WTF, Duncan Trussell’s Family Hour, TOFOP, Crabfeast, Never Not Funny, and last year he started traveling around the country interviewing scientists about the meanings of life for his own podcast “Here We Are” which has a 5 star rating on iTunes.
Shane Mauss has too many credits to name. Since winning HBO’s Comedy Arts Festival “Best Stand up Comic” Award, he’s gone on to be a favorite on Conan, Comedy Central, Netflix and pretty much everywhere online. His latest album, ‘My Big Break’, debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts and is regarded among fans to be his best work yet. Now he’s diving into a brand new hour about one of his admittedly controversial lifelong passions: psychedelics.
A self-described insane teenager, Shane seems to have done every drug he could get his hands on while constantly in trouble with the law. In a few short years, however, he’s gone from barely getting a high school diploma and near homelessness to interviewing the top scientists in the world about the meaning of life on his hit podcast ‘Here We Are’. Throughout all of this there appears to have been only one constant in Shane’s life: TRIPPING BALLS.
Take a journey down the rabbit hole for some deep, authentic laughs about hallucinations, scientific insights, near-death experiences, and a whole lot of weird. If there is no concept strange enough for you, this is the show for you.

Large and loud, alternately topical and goofy, Lawrence Thomas loves to make people laugh. He hurls hurricane lines out of a frenzied onstage storm that is little more than his own personality focused in a single direction. He lives for the moment, but at full throttle!

He’s fast paced, brutally honest and breaks down the troubles between men and women like no one else. A definite date night or a sure thing for Ladies Night Out. You have seen him on HBO, Showtime, A&E and NBC!
