Shane Hartline is an Actor/Comedian/Filmmaker and former Pro Wrestler from Central Florida. Pro Wrestler?!? Yes you heard right, in 2004 at the young age of 17 Shane entered the Pro Wrestling world as the wild surfer character "RIP MALIBU" and by 2005 he was voted "Rookie of the Year" in the state of Florida being featured in Magazines, newspapers, etc. His charisma and energy which rooted back to Improv training at an early age really stood out in the Pro Wrestling world, so much in fact that in 2006 Shane decided to hang up the wrestling boots and pursue a career in Acting/Comedy.
Soon after stepping away from Pro Wrestling full time Shane began doing online sketch comedy work as part of a Comedy group he started known as "Wooden Steel Production" which has generated over 2,000,000 web views worldwide! Shane's work online has stood out so much that it has gotten him appearances in Newspapers, News Channels, Radio Shows and in talks with shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and TRL on MTV. Also in 2007, his sketches were going to be featured in a new NBC show hosted by Carson Daly called "It's Your Show TV". Though the show never took off, that didn't stop Shane in his path. A year later in 2007 Shane entered a nationwide acting contest held by CBS called "BIG SHOT LIVE" and won! He was flown to Los Angeles and filmed a webisode for their series.
In 2008 Shane produced his own Independent film entitled "Skittin Across America" which he and his Wooden Steel crew went entirely around the country shooting a comedy documentary meeting up with various celebrities from MADtv to Viva La Bam. He's giving all proceeds of the DVD to his idol's charity "THE CHRIS FARLEY FOUNDATON" and working hand in hand with Chris' brother Tom Farley on a future sequel.
Today Shane is a full time cast member at SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando, FL (same place Wayne Brady got his start). He is hosting a webcast called "Wooden Steel LIVE" that has been running weekly since 2007 and can be seen every Thursday Night at 10ET/7PT on the Wooden Steel website woodensteel.tv. Shane has been featured in National Commercials including a current SONIC Burger commercial, he's done films, television and much more! It looks like the future holds no bounds for this aspiring comedian actor. « less
