Shane Torres is a New York-based stand-up comic, writer, actor, teller-of-tall-tales, and fish-out-of-water, originally from Fort Worth, Texas. He’s pleased to announce that September 8th will mark the release of his first stand-up comedy record, Established 1981, via Comedy Central Records, with a Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents…half hour special to come later this fall.


Shane began performing regularly in Portland in 2007 and connected with other likeminded and talented comics like Ron Funches, Ian Karmel, Sean Jordan, Whitney Streed, Phil Schlaberger, and Christian Ricketts. He honed his craft and drew inspiration from a tight-knit scene of friends for 7 years before moving to New York in 2014. Shane has been performing and touring constantly. In 2017 alone, Shane has performed stand-up on both Night Train and The Guest List for Seeso, in addition to AXS’s Gotham Comedy Live. He made his late-night debut on Conan in 2016 and also made an appearance that year on Uproarious for Fuse. You may have also seen him performing on Last Comic Standing on NBC, and Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops on CMT. He’s performed at many other festivals all over the country including Moontower, Bridgetown, Riot LA, High Plains Comedy, Bumbershoot Music and Arts, and Outside Lands.
