This Funzing Experience:

Join us for a truly unique evening, into the immersive world of ALCOTRAZ - the Prison themed BYO cocktail bar - for a fascinating talk on life in one of the USA's deadliest jails. Smuggle in your own liquor, and have it made into your favourite drink by the 'serving' in-mates of Alcotraz.

Shaun went from recreational drug user and stock-market millionaire to becoming an Ecstasy kingpin in America. He got caught and was sent to maximum security prison in Arizona. His story has been broadcast worldwide on the National Geographic program “Banged Up Abroad”. His trailer is here.

In this amazing talk, Shaun is going to tell you what it was like making millions of dollars and reaching God like status throwing raves and selling Ecstasy, to ending up in one of America’s most dangerous prisons, where gang members and even guards were murdering inmates.

“Shaun’s story is the Manchester rave scene meets The Wolf of Wall Street and ends in The Shawshank Redemption” - Jon Ronson author of The Psychopath Test

Please be aware that this talk is not for the faint hearted. Shaun will be talking about the brutal conditions in jail including murder and gang rape. Due to the nature of this talk it is strictly an 18+ event.

Venue: Alcotraz Penitentiary, Brick Lane

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
