Earlier this year, I told you that during the tapings for Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, comedian Shane Mauss had himself one of them thar American Idol moments, knowing enough of his surroundings to gaze into the camera as it panned across the stage, in close-up, to deliver a punchline. Well. That moment is captured here for your enjoyment. The full episode with Mauss airs this coming Friday, June 20. Enjoy! Mauss also is among 24 comedians taking part in a showcase competition this week at the inaugural Great American Comedy Festival in Norfolk, Neb. (Johnny Carson’s hometown).

After the jump, another clip with Mauss talking about airbags in cars, knowing the date, and blind people. Enjoy!
