    Shane Mauss’ new comedy album is about breaking both of his feet

    Shane Mauss, My Big BreakYeah, it sounds gruesome as hell, but that’s what happened.

    Shane Mauss is set to release his third stand-up comedy album titled, My Big Break, and this time he didn’t have to look far for inspiration. You see, a few months back, Mauss was hiking and misjudged the height of a cliff on a jump. The result were two, yes two, shattered feet and some of his strongest work to date.

    Mauss had surgery to fix his feet which included some screws to put him back together. Let’s be honest, if you peep the album art, you might just think Shane is more machine than man at this point. My Big Break will hit stores on Tuesday, May 26 and b available at all digital retailers.

    Sean White laughs in the face of death on his debut album Dead & Gone (review)

    Sean White - Dead And GoneMany comedians come to a point in their lives when they have to decide whether to relocate to New York or LA. The move is considered an inevitable and necessary step to advance their careers. While it’s not impossible to achieve big things in a smaller, secondary scene, it’s not terribly common. Sean White, however, is one of those people who’s talent is bigger than his zip code.

    Originally from Alabama, Sean White is an emerging comedian based out of Chicago, IL. He’s been called a “Gem” by RE:Com Chicago Comedy magazine, “Killing it” by the Chicago Tribune, and was named one of the top 16 comics in Chicago by Chicago Magazine. Despite not having an LA or NYC address, White was recently able to catch the eye of A Special Thing Records who released his debut album Dead & Gone. It goes without saying White’s album has to be pretty amazing to earn a spot in the AST library next to Guy Branum, Bob Odenkirk, Jared Logan and many more hilarious comedians, but let’s elaborate anyway.
