It would take too long to cite all of his credits, but here’s a small sampling: How does a little show called NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” grab you? Fact: he finished top six in 2009, no big deal. Doug is a series regular on VH-1’s “Best Week Ever.” He also makes recurring appearances on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On the classic sitcom “Friends,” he had the nerve to hit on Jennifer Aniston. He has his own half-hour TV special – “Comedy Central Presents Doug Benson,” is a recurring character on “The Sarah Silverman Program,” and oops, almost forgot, got Larry David in a headlock on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” If that’s not enough for you, he’s a creator/writer/star of “The Marijuana-Logues,” a show that’s been 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 Doug “Stoner of the Year.” He has his own documentary/movie called “Super High Me” based on a joke from his standup act. It’s available on DVD! He also expresses his love of movies on his “I Love Movies” podcasts (available on iTunes). More? OK. His acting skills have been showcased on the sitcoms “How I Met Your Mother” and “Yes, Dear,” and his comedy has been laughed at on ESPN’s “Cheap Seats: w/o Ron Parker,” and he has been featured in the doc/movies “Mash Up,” “Heckler,” and “The High Road with Doug Benson.” Most recently you’ve seen Doug on Comedy Central’s “The Benson Interruption” and “Marijuana: a Chronic History” on the History Channel. His latest film, "The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled" is slated for release later this year.
Enough about Doug Benson, come see the show!!
