Hi! I’m Shane Mauss. Most comedians write biographies in the third person, but it’s kind of silly. Before I tell you about this show, it’s standard for comedians to gloat about their accomplishments: I’ve 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 I’ve 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 Trussell’s 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.
Now let me tell you about the show. I’ve 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, thought-provoking, and well-received material of my career. I’ve worked very hard to put together a one-of-a-kind show for the open-minded, insightful, inquisitive, curious weirdos among us. I’m hoping that is you.
