Seth Rogen Talks About Taking Magic Mushrooms At Cirque du Soleil

Actor Seth Rogen takes his movie roles very seriously. So when he was asked to scout filming locations in Las Vegas for a “Knocked Up” scene where he and Paul Rudd take magic mushrooms at a Cirque du Soleil performance, Rogen and co-producer Evan Goldberg didn’t cut corners.

“As responsible producers, we thought the only appropriate way to really know which one would be the best would be to do shrooms for two days straight and see every single Cirque du Soleil show that was on The Strip at the time, which we did,” Rogen said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday. “It was amazing.”

But not all of the shows were psilocybin-friendly, he said. A water-themed show made him nervous for the performers and he “kept trying to get them to stop.” Another show that’s billed as “exotic” and “burlesque” also didn’t feel right, he said.

“Sex becomes very medical on mushrooms,” Rogen said. “You just don’t want that.”

The eventual winner was a production that is considered more family friendly and comical. The Mystere show, which featured a “big, funky baby dude in it,” proved to be “a comedic gift from god.”

Better yet, the manager of the show agreed to let the “Knocked Up” production film on location, and he didn’t have a problem with the use of magic mushrooms.

“How do you think we come up with stuff?” Rogen recalled the manager telling him.

Later in the interview, Rogen talked about his recently launched cannabis company, Houseplant. He said it fulfilled a lifelong dream to “provide people with high quality cannabis.” But it’s not the first time the comedian sold marijuana. “During prohibition” he sold cannabis and shrooms, he said.

“I’m doing my best,” Rogen said. “I’m just trying. It’s an exciting time.”
