It is said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This show seeks to prove that by pitting 8 comedians head-to-head in a hilarious tournament-style debate of “what’s hot” and “what’s not”.
Each round will consist of two comedians that will be given a hot trending topic such as “TikTok, Kanye West, the High-Five”. One will have to argue the pro (treasure) side vs the other arguing the con (trash) side of the topic for the audience to decide if it is Trash or Treasure. That’s right – we are keeping or canceling people and trends right on stage y’all.
The comedians that make it through the first round will advance to a speed round of trash or treasure. Winners will close out the night with a stand-up comedy set for continued laughter.
Hosted/moderated by the host of iTunes top-charting podcasts Stephen Settani and the hot and hilarious up and coming comedian Lamar Mitchell J.R.
This show is brought to you by A Comedy Advice Podcast and We Major Presents.

Gillis began performing comedy in 2012. He regularly performed in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. To further his career, he relocated to Philadelphia. In 2015, he placed 3rd at Helium Comedy Club’s annual “Philly’s Phunniest” tournament, and he won the tournament the next year. Shane has named among his biggest stand-up influences as Louis CK, Dave Chappelle, Norm Macdonald, Patrice O’Neal, and Bill Burr.
In 2016, Gillis began Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast with Matt McCusker. In 2017, Gillis became a frequent guest on The Bonfire with Big Jay Oakerson and Dan Soder, increasing his popularity. He also began a weekly show on Compound Media called A Fair One with Tommy Pope.
In 2019, Comedy Central named Gillis an “Up Next” comedian as he performed at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest. That same year, Gillis was recognized as a “New Face” at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. During an interview for All Things Considered at that festival, Gillis was interrupted by stand-up comedian Robert Kelly, who said, “You’re very funny, dude … I mean, I wanted to hate it.” The interviewer, Andrew Limbong, described Gillis’ set at the festival, writing: “Shane Gillis gives off post-jock energy—like someone who used to play a sport in school, then had the self-awareness to realize he wasn’t cut out for it and stopped—but he isn’t bitter about it at all. His friendly demeanor distracts you, while he sneaks in just a whiff of social insight within a barrage of self-deprecating sex jokes.”
In January 2020, Gillis was named “2019’s Stand-Up Comedian of the Year” in Theinterrobang’s Sixth Annual Comedy Awards.
