Doug Benson

It would take too long to cite all of Doug's credits, but here's a small sampling: He has a documentary called Super High Me, based on a joke from his standup act, and another one called The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled. How does a little show called NBC's Last Comic Standing grab you? Fact: he finished top six in the 2007 season, no big deal. Doug was a series regular on four seasons of VH-1's Best Week Ever. He's made recurring appearances on The Sarah Silverman Program, The Jeselnik Offensive and fX's Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. He has two Comedy Central Presents half-hour specials, and his long-running live show, The Benson Interruption, became a series broadcast on Comedy Central.

If that's not enough for you, Doug was a creator/writer/star of The Marijuana-Logues, a show that was a hit (small pun intended) in clubs and theatres from Los Angeles to New York - and drew a bongload of rave reviews. Now there's a CD, also called The Marijuana-Logues, and a book, The Marijuana-Logues: Everything About Pot That We Could Remember. In 2006, High Times Magazine named him Stoner of the Year, and in 2009, he successfully made it to all the shows in his thirteen-day Medical Marijuana Tour. Now Doug has several CD's out, most recently Gateway Doug, a new web series called Getting Doug with High and the hit itunes podcast Doug Loves Movies. You can also hear him talk through movies with his comedian friends in the live show The Benson Movie Interruption. Enough about Doug Benson already!
