Call him cocky, call him confident, but never call him dull. The Midnight Swinger erupts onto the stage like the volcano in front of the Mirage Hotel in a fresh and original, over the top event that has been called "sharp-witted," "clever" and "classy."

Putting the show back in showman, The Midnight Swinger combines the style and cool of a 60"s Las Vegas performer with the flash and excitement of a 21st century Super Bowl halftime extravaganza.

More than just a stand-up comedian, the Midnight Swinger is proud to be called a throwback entertainer. That"s right, an entertainer! The Swinger believes in more than just standing behind the microphone and telling jokes, and doing more than just a simple "comedy show." The Midnight Swinger puts on a spectacle that leaves the audience LAUGHIN", SINGIN" and SWINGIN".

The Swinger always wears the sharpest threads no matter where he is performing, and stylin" and profilin" with an oversized pompadour. The Swinger will be the first to tell you, "Damn, I Look Good," his battle cry before, during and after every show.

The never subtle or soft spoken Midnight Swinger heats up the room as he puts on a classic Las Vegas style show filled with great comedy, music, singing and dancing. And when the show is over you will walkout with a smile on your face yelling DAMN, I LOOK GOOD!

SHANE MAUSS - A GOOD TRIP TOUR

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.

Unlike a typical stand-up act that is 45 minutes of set-up, punch, repeat. This is an hour and a half show that is part stand-up, part hilarious stories of experiences, and part Ted Talk. I will take us on a funny journey through the stigma, history, laws, and science of psychedelics. I will share personal experiences and talk about the effects of hallucinogens like mushrooms, LSD, and DMT. (Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar, I’ve worked hard to articulate the experience for all.)

My hope is that I’m helping to both 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!

*This is a very popular show so make sure to make reservations. Also, presale tickets are cheaper than at the door.

WARNING: This show is about PSYCHEDELICS! It’s about learning about ourselves and looking at life differently. If you are a fan of meth, heroin, or any other idiotic drug like that, this show will probably only make you feel worse about yourself than you likely already do.

Q: Isn’t drug humor cliché?

A: It often is, but this is not a bunch of dumb pot jokes. This is some of the most thoughtful and unique humor you will ever see.

Q: Will you be on drugs while performing.

A: No. Who does psychedelics and then goes to work? What a waste of good drugs.

Q: Are you going to pass out psychedelics out to everybody?

A: Umm NO. Obviously. But if you come and support this kind of message, meet like-minded people at the show, and help keep the conversation going; maybe one day these outrageous drug laws will change.

Regardless, we’re all going to have a good trip.

his Florida girl got her first laugh on stage at 5 years old in the Little Miss Fort Myers Beauty Pageant, after an interviewer ask if she liked going to school she answered “Hell no, I'd rather stay home and watch cartoons”, when the audience exploded, she had found her calling. After completely crushing her Mother’s hopes for a future Miss America in one single moment, she went on to become a full time stand-up comic in 1997.

The road to the comedic stage was a bumpy one; sarcasm is an underappreciated trait in the educational system. Undeterred she grew up honing her comedic skills in detention hall and time out. The youngest and only girl in a large family gave her the opportunity to learn firsthand how to handle a heckler, even one that can give you a really mean Indian burn. This “tomboy in high heels” is now a proud single parent to a teenage son, whose twisted sense of humor he has inherited from his Mom. Her animated likeable personality and quick delivery style brings a relatable but unique voice to the stand-up stage.

She has performed in some of the best comedy clubs across the country becoming one of the most requested by clubs and audiences alike. This has led to being invited to both the Boston Comedy Festival and the Las Vegas Comedy Festival. In 2009 made her film debut in the independent film “Pose Down”.
