About the Event

Award winning comedian, science communicator, and psychonaut Shane Mauss has joined forces with video jockey Michael Strauss, Emmy nominated Comedy Central ‘Tales From The Trip’ creator and animator Grant Lindahl and a number of psychedelic artists around the world to visually bring his unique brand of psychedelic stand-up and storytelling.

Shane Mauss caught his first big breaks as an absurdest Conan, Kimmel, Comedy Central, Showtime and others.  While touring he decided to use any free time explore his interesting science by interviewing scientists for his podcast ‘Here We Are’ where he has interviewed over 400 professors about evolution, the mind, and the meanings of life.

Science inspired a variety of themed one person shows giving Shane a style unique to American comedy.  In 2016, the lifelong psychedelic and mental health advocate partnered with the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) on a 111 city psychedelic comedy tour during which a film crew followed him for the Amazon Prime documentary ‘Psychonautics: A Comic’s Exploration of Psychedelics’. 

In 2023 Shane created his new multimedia ‘A Better Trip’ for a Vegas residency at the immersive psychedelic entertainment complex Area 15.  Having created this accessible, informative, hilarious, visual comedy experience, Shane is now hitting the road with his live VJ Micheal to bring this one-of-a-kind show to over 100 cities all over the country.

This show is full of surprises, including impressionist The Ungooglable Michaelangelo resurrecting historic psychedelic figures such as Hunter S Thompson, Timothy Leary, and Terrence McKenna for some fun sketches.

We usually connect with local psychedelic organizations everywhere we go for an opportunity for audience members to connect more with members in their community and get more information about some of the most intriguing substances and experiences on earth.

This show sells-out everywhere and ticket prices increase closer to the show.  So reserve your seats today. Use $5 OFF code: GPS
