Adam Strauss is a writer and performer based in New York. His monologue “The Mushroom Cure” is the true story of how he treated his debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder with psychedelics. The New York Times said it “mines a great deal of laughter from disabling pain,” The Chicago Tribune called it “arrestingly honest and howlingly funny” and Time Out New York called it “riveting; a true-life tour de force” and named it a Critics’ Pick. Apart from the show, Adam shares his perspective on OCD and psychedelics in articles, on podcasts, and at conferences. Adam is thrilled to be performing psychedelic stand-up comedy at the conference.
