Shapel Lacey

with A.D Hodge and Charles Engle

Shapel Lacey is an American comedian born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. A diehard punk rocker and former award winning competitive cheerleader, Shapel found ways to express himself and own his individuality at an early age. Shapel was cheerleading competitively for University of Louisville when someone dared him to take the stage as a comedian and he never looked back, dropping out shortly thereafter to pursue a career in stand up full- time. His unique life experiences (such as being adopted by a Caucasian family at age15), punk rock mentality, and stage presence combined make for a truly original voice in the community. Diligence and the desire to grow led him from the Phoenix open mic circuit onto main stages where he regularly performed for comedians such as Bill Burr, Chris D’Elia, Hannibal Buress, Bryan Callen, Frank Caliendo, and now regularly in Los Angeles, California.

Since recently moving to Los Angeles and securing representation, Shapel is preparing for what looks like a very busy near future, opening for his idol Henry Rollins at the 2019 Sonic Temple Music Festival, performing at Comedy Central’s festival Clusterfest, and being named Just For Laughs Comedy Festival “New Face”.
