Comic gives away 'shrooms at Glastonbury
    #4342532 - 06/27/05 12:40 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

'Shrooms with a view
June 27, 2005 - chortle.co.uk

Outspoken stand-up Brendon Burns threw himself from marquee scaffolding while high on magic mushrooms during his Glastonbury gig last night.

The Australian comic had previously handed out free samples of the hallucinogenic fungi to some of the hundreds of people in the festival's cabaret tent, then admitted he'd just taken some, too.

Spotting the scaffolding, which also doubled as lighting rig, he said: 'I'm climbing that' - getting about 10ft up before deciding to plunge into the audience, who were waiting to catch him.

Burns's exploits were filmed by fellow comic Paul Provenza, whose recent movie The Aristocrats - featuring a parade of famous comics trying to outdo each other in the world's filthiest jokes - has been causing a stir on the festival circuit.

The pair have been working on film based on the beneficial effects of laughter - and the handing out of free magic mushrooms designed to enhance the experience was all part of that experiment.

The movie will chart Burns's recovery from the heartbreak of splitting up with the girlfriend he thought was the love of his life at last year's Glastonbury. During last night's gig, Burns tried to call her to make his peace - but she had blocked his number. Instead the comic read out a poem about his experiences, and closed his set by saying: 'My name's Brendon - and sometimes I can be quite self-indulgent.'

Burns and Provenza had to smuggle the mushrooms into the festival even though they are currently legal in the UK and openly on sale throughout the site.

However, in three weeks time, the Drugs Act 2005 will come into force, classifying cultivated mushrooms as Class A substances, alongside heroin and crack cocaine. Burns has been among those campaigning against the change in the law.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

I once knew a crackhead who dosed on shrooms and then smoked crack.
He was a cool ass mother fucker though...
But now he's in jail.
Apparently crack doesn't help in the good decision-making area of the brain.

epic.
This will be the next great evolution in Comedy. dosing the masses with
Big-Laughing Gyms. Audience Participation will skyrocket, and the need for an actual comic will be phased out.

I don't think climbing scaffolding on mushrooms is really helping the cause.
