Presented by: Jonathan Falconer

After five sold-out Dunedin shows, The Science of Getting 2 High is a sequel show hosted by the self-identified World's Dumbest Doctor Jonathan Falconer that seamlessly blends stand-up comedy with intriguing insights from the field of neuropharmacology. The new show gets a bit more raw and personal, with a look at the science behind bad trips with personal anecdotes on how to embrace or avoid them.

The Science of Getting 2 High combines the fun of stand-up comedy with the captivating neuroscience of altered states and drug dependence, illuminating our susceptibility to negative experiences with drugs and how to minimize risks with drug use.

Jonathan has been featured on Radio New Zealand and Stuff, won the 2020 Mount Maunganui Comedy Competition and Best Comedian at the Dunedin Comedy Awards in 2020 and 2021.
