Shane Mauss: A GOOD TRIP
Hi! Im Shane Mauss. Most comedians write biographies in the third person, but its kind of silly. Before I tell you about this show, its standard for comedians to gloat about their accomplishments: Ive been a comedian for twelve years. Nine years ago I won an award for Best Stand-Up at the HBO US Comedy Festival and became a fulltime national (and sometimes international) headliner. Since then Ive appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, five times on Conan, and have specials on Comedy Central and Netflix.
Probably the best way to get to know me and what this show is about is from my appearances on popular podcasts like You Made It Weird, Duncan Trussells Family Hour, The Bertcast, and TOFOP. Better yet, listen to my podcast Here We Are where I talk with a different scientist each week about the meanings of life.
Ive been a psychonaut for almost 20 years (to me this means I use psychedelics to aid in gaining a deeper understanding of the mind). Psychedelics have had a significant and positive impact on my life. But more relevant to this show, they are also the source of some of the most hilarious and thought-provoking and well-received material of my career. Ive worked very hard to put together a one-of-a-kind show for the open-minded, insightful, inquisitive, curious weirdos among us. Im hoping that is you.
Unlike a typical stand-up act that is 45 minutes of set-up, punch, repeat. This is an hour and a half show that is part stand-up, part storytelling, and part Ted Talk. I will take us on a funny journey through the stigma, history, laws, and science of psychedelics. I will share personal experiences and talk about the effects of hallucinogens like mushrooms, LSD, and DMT. (Dont worry if you arent familiar, Ive worked hard to articulate the experience for all.)
My hope is that Im helping to both destigmatized and demystified hallucinogens in a fun way. I encourage the study of psychedelics, not necessarily recreational use. They arent for everybody, but they are for me.
BUT isnt drug humor cliché? It often is, but this is not a bunch of dumb pot jokes. This is some of the most thoughtful and unique humor you will ever see.
WARNING: This show is about PSYCHEDELICS! Its about learning about ourselves and looking at life differently. If you are a fan of meth, heroin, or any other idiotic drug like that, this show will probably only make you feel worse about yourself than you likely already do.
FINALLY: To answer your question, no! I will not actually be on drugs (at least not until I am done with work). But regardless, were all going to have a good trip.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: This is a very popular show so make sure to make reservations
