Shane Gillis Professional Life
Gillis’s career as a stand-up comedian started in 2012 when he started doing regular shows in Harrisburg. Shane moved to Pennsylvania in search of better job opportunities. In 2015, he won first place at Philly’s punniest tournament. Then, in 2016, he won the tournament. During this time, comedians like Bill Burr, Norm Macdonald, Dave Chappelle, and Louis CK had a big impact on Shane. In 2016, he also made the “Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast,” which was his first podcast. Over the next few years, he was often on podcasts like “The Bonfire” and started a new one called “A Fair One.”
In 2019, he was asked by Comedy Central to do a show at Clusterfest. Then, he got a spot as a “New Face” at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.
Shane was soon named as one of the new “Saturday Night Live” cast members. Unfortunately, he has fired almost right away because people were upset. This happened because there was a YouTube video of Gillis using homophobic slurs and words like “Chink.” Shane apologized on Twitter, but the creator of “Saturday Night Live” decided quickly to take him off the show. Gillis then responded by saying that the clips were taken out of context and that he was often misquoted in news stories. Then he took back his first apology.
Even though this was a big setback for Gillis’s career, he still goes on stage and gets good reviews. At Theinterrobang’s Sixth Annual Comedy Awards in 2020, he was named Stand-Up Comedian of the Year. Gillis then started the web series “Gilly and Keeves,” which had several funny sketches. Shane’s first live comedy show, “Shane Gillis: Live in Austin,” came out in 2021. The special was posted for free on YouTube, where it got more than 3 million views. It was also liked by critics, who put it in second place on “The Laugh Button” list.
Shane became much better known after he was on “The Joe Rogan Experience” in 2021. During his first appearance, he talked about being fired from “SNL” and said what he thought about it. During his second time on the podcast, he joined comedian Mark Normand and Ari Shaffir and said that he had been on tour with Louis CK. Shane took a big step forward with these appearances since the “JRE” podcast is watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world. Some people had different opinions about the podcasts themselves. For example, Joe Rogan said that gay and transgender people are the “most vicious” champions of transgender culture. The host also said that “SNL” has taken jokes from stand-up comedians in the past.
