Shang

Shang has come a long way from the boroughs of New York. Originally from Brooklyn, this Carnegie Mellon University graduate and aspiring illustrator began his comedy career on a dare. A friend bet him $50 to take the stage during open-mike night at a local comedy club, Shang won the bet. He felt It was a way to get the things that he was passionate  and angry about that he saw in the world. So he caught the comedy bug and quickly became an underground favorite with his dark, edgy avant-garde, socio-political style. The charismatic comic has proven his premiere stand-up skills with appearances nationwide and abroad. Shang provided one of the most memorable performances of 1995 on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and won two half-hour comedy specials on BET’s Comic View Grand Stand. Shang has cemented his position as one  of the brightest funnymen in the business and his political and explosive humor has been showcased on HBO’s Aspen Comedy Festival Special Best of the Fest. Other appearances include Politically Incorrect, the BBC’s Funny Business,Mun2’s Loco Comedy Jam, NBC’s Comedy Showcase, MTV’s Choose or Lose,  National Lampoon’s New Faces, Comedy Central’s Jamie Foxx presents Laffapalooza and was a Co-Host on Russell Simmon’s One World Music Beat. Shang also is a co-producer and host of BET’S Access Granted and is a regular on BET’s Comic View, which airs weeknights at 10 pm. In addition, he has displayed impressive comedic acting and writing ability as a series regular on the late-night laugh-fest The Newz and a contributing writer for George Magazine. Now Shang has been making headway into the acting field with recent guest starring roles on episodes of On CBS’s NCIS, ABC’s Zack & Cody, NBC’s Passions, WB’s The Jamie Foxx Show and just finished shooting a pilot for FOX TV called FACELESS written and directed by hot new director Joe Carmahan (Narc and Smoking Aces) and produced by Tony Krantz ( 24, The PJ’s & Sports Night). The debut of Shang’s first major release CD entitled SHANGRY!! on Uproar Records is in stores now & has one of the most played comedy specials on XM Radio’s Live on Broadway taped at the world famous Caroline’s on Broadway In NY. In addition, Shang will be featured in several uipcoming international televised shows in Japan, Ireland, London, and Amsterdam. Shang will continue to rise to the top of the comedy ranks with high-profile acting  and televised stand up and personal appearances.
