Riot Act is proud to welcome Shang in his only real DC appearance in many years June 1st and 2nd for four amazing shows.

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" 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".

Shang also is a Co-producer & host of BET'S "Access Granted" and is a regular on Bet's "Comic View", which airs weeknights at 10pm. In addition, he has displayed impressive comedic acting and writing ability as a series regular on the late-night laugh-fest "The Newz" and was 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 & directed by hot new director Joe Carmahan ("Narc" & "Smoking Aces") and produced by Tony Krantz ("24", "The PJ's" and "Sports Night").
