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-mic night at a local comedy club. Shang won the bet. After that he caught the comedy bug he quickly became an underground favorite with his dark, edgy avant-garde, socio-political style.

The charismatic comic has proven his stand-up skills with appearances nationwide and abroad with one of the most memorable performances of HBO's "Def Comedy Jam." He won two half-hour comedy specials on BET's "Comic View Grand Stand." Other appearances include HBO's Aspen Comedy Festival Special "Best of the Fest," "Politically Incorrect,” NBC's "Comedy Showcase," MTV’s "Choose or Lose," CBS’s "The Late Late Show," ABC’s “Comics Unleashed,” National Lampoon’s "New Faces," Comedy Central’s "Jamie Foxx presents Laffapalooza.” 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 10pm. (Incidentally, BET reaches 80 million cable households according to Nielsen Media Research).

As a actor Shang has been making headway with recent guest starring roles on episodes of On NBC's “Heroes,” CBS’s “NCIS,” "CSI," 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" & "Smoking Aces") and produced by Tony Krantz ( "24," "The PJ’s" & "Sports Night"). Shang will be co-starring in the upcoming movie “Devine Intervention” directed by Van Elder.

On the radio front Shang has one of the most played Comedy Specials on XM Radio called “Live on Broadway,” taped at the world famous Caroline’s on Broadway In New York. In addition, he will be featured in several upcoming international televised shows in Japan, Ireland, London and Amsterdam, and will continue to rise to the top of the comedy ranks with high-profile acting and televised stand up and personal appearances.
