Comedian Shane Mauss will bring his Good Trip Comedy Tour to the Palace Picture House for one show Friday, June 23.

Mauss' 110-city psychedelic comedy tour began last October and is sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies.

A self-described psychonaut which Mauss explains is his use of psychedelics to gain a deeper understanding of the mind the comedian takes his audience on a funny journey through the stigma, history, laws and science of psychedelics while sharing personal experiences.

"I've worked very hard to put together a one-of-a-kind show for the open-minded, insightful, inquisitive, curious weirdos among us," Mauss says in a news release. "My hope is that I'm helping to destigmatize and demystify psychedelics in a fun way. I am an advocate for psychedelic studies and rights. I'm in no way encouraging everyone to do them. They aren't for everybody. They just happen to be for me.

"Psychedelics have had a significant and positive impact on my life," he continues. "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."

His comedy show at 9 p.m. will be followed by a DMT Talk at 11 p.m.

DMT, or Dimethyltryptamine, is an intense hallucinogenic. In the DMT Talk, he discusses his DMT experiences and the scientific insights they reveal about the brain.

Mauss is a nationally touring act whose career was launched after he won Best Stand-Up in the HBO U.S. Comedy Festival. He has been a guest on Conan O'Brien's talk show five times, appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Comedy Central Presents."

His comedy special "Mating Season" is available on Netflix, and his most recent comedy album, "My Big Break," went to No. 1 on the comedy iTunes charts. He is also the creator and host of the podcast "Here We Are," in which he interviews scientists and academics.
