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 & angry about that he saw in the world.
So he caught the comedy bug & 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 with one of the most memorable performances of 1995 on HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” & 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 & 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” & was a Co-Host on Russell Simmon’s “One World Music Beat”.
