Journey into the mind of a psychedelic astronaut with a consciousness-expanding comedy show that will leave you mesmerized. At the intersection of science and psychedelics comes “A Better Trip,” the latest work from Shane Mauss.
Originally conceived for his springtime 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 … but wait, there’s more! It’s also accompanied by a vivid display of mind-blowing visuals and custom animations that back the entire performance.
