Shane Mauss – A Better Trip

Originally from a small town in Wisconsin, this former factory worker skipped college to pursue his childhood dream of stand-up comedy. His dry wit and cerebral absurdism quickly earned him regular television appearances on Comedy Central, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, Netflix, Showtime, Epix, and Amazon Prime.

Given the opportunity to headline nationally, he felt compelled to explore bigger ideas. He always found himself reading science books and having a lot of questions, so he started reaching out to different scientists at universities in each city he traveled to interview them for his science podcast: Here We Are. Favorite topics on the show include psychology, biology, evolution, cognitive biases, behavioral economics, mating, animal behavior, neuroscience, and consciousness.

As podcasting changed the entertainment landscape, Shane became a regular guest on Duncan Trussell’s Family Hour, Pete Holmes' You Made It Weird, and has had appearances on many of the biggest podcasts including, Marc Maron’s WTF, Andrew Santino’s Whisky Ginger, Theo Von’s This Past Weekend, and Bert Kreischer's Bertcast.

After a variety of science-themed one-person shows, Shane decided to make a show about how psychedelics had both inspired him and aided his mental health. He had no idea the amount of attention that passion project was about to gain! Shortly after he had partnered with MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association Of Psychedelic Studies) he embarked was on a 111-city sold-out psychedelic comedy tour (A Good Trip) with a film crew following him for the documentary Psychonautics: A Comic’s Exploration of Psychedelics.

Shane’s ability to hilariously articulate the most mysterious and intriguing of experiences in a knowledgeable, grounded way quickly gained him attention in the psychedelic space. He’s even the most viewed storyteller on Comedy Central’s animated psychedelic series Tales From The Trip.

When Covid hit and put his non stop touring and income on hold. Shane made the most of his time to restructure his business.

In 2021 Shane combined all of his passions and collaborated with visual artist Ramin Nazer for the comedy and philosophy podcast Mind Under Matter. Last year the two launched an immersive, physical manifestation of the show with The Mind Under Matter Campout Festival, which combines bands, science talks, comedy shows, wellness, and visionary artists with the community.

Doors open 1 hour prior to showtime. This show is All Ages
