Shane Rhyne is a reluctant optimist, a depression enthusiast, and a “the glass is half-shattered” kind of guy.
He has worked previously as a husband, a marketing professional, and a television and radio personality. But that’s all gone, so now he turns personal traumas into jokes for strangers. He uses playful, clean, intelligent comedy as he exposes the bright side of his dark thoughts. He hosts and produces comedy shows in Knoxville. He has been blocked on Twitter by his Congressman, and takes this as a sign his comedy career is going well.
Shane is part of a cartel of comedy producers working under the title of Rain/Shine Events. Currently they produce two popular monthly comedy showcases: First Friday Comedy at Saw Works Brewing in downtown Knoxville, and Casual Comedy at the Casual Pint-Hardin Valley in West Knoxville.
He is a regular member of the performing cast of QED Comedy Laboratory, Knoxville’s weekly experimental comedy show. He was also a member of the organizing committee for the inaugural Scruffy City Comedy Festival in Knoxville in 2014.
He was the Scruffy City Comedian of the Month for October 2014, which moves him one step closer to membership in the exclusive club of performers to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony and Comedian of the Month award.
