About

Part talk show and part game show, I’m Too Effing High is a half hearted attempt to find out if people are funnier when they’re high. Using the language of comedy in an effort to normalize cannabis, host James Mastraieni guides a panel of stoned comedians through a series of comedy challenges, games, and performances, testing their comedic creativity while being too effing high.

More unpredictable than a 100mg edible, this is the funniest show you’ll never remember.

Watch the show live, the first Saturday of every month at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre — and hear new episodes of the podcast every Tuesday wherever you listen to podcasts.

“Comedy show ‘I’m Too Effing High’ fights the stigma with humor, wit and intellect.”
- OC Weekly’s PotPlus

“I’m Too Effing High tests the age-old query: ‘Are comedians funnier when they’re high?’ Host and creator James Mastraieni casually probes for the answer by inviting … some of the coolest, funniest people working the stand-up scene. The show is tremendously funny as is, but if you get high when you listen, it’s like being baked with some of your best friends.”

“The vibe is friendly and good-hearted, and the listener feels quickly welcomed into the fold of host and guests. As the listener, you become the quiet baked kid in the corner while your funny friends hold court. Face it, you like to get high and you like to laugh. That’s one of the goals of recreational use.”
