Comedy + Science + Art + Psychedelics = A Better Trip
Journey into the mind of a psychedelic astronaut with a consciousness-expanding comedy experience. At the intersection of science, humor, and psychedelics comes “A Better Trip,” the latest work from Shane Mauss.
Originally a residency at AREA15 in Las Vegas–this hilariously heady event highlights Shane’s personal psychedelic experiences and examines the history, science, and culture of psychedelics. Accompanied by a vivid display of mind-blowing visuals and custom animations that back the entire performance, this one-of-a-kind show articulates the psychedelic experience.
