Professional stoner comedian Doug Benson swings by the Improv this week, so if you haven't smoked all those Christmas buds yet, pack a fat bowl and take a cab over to Irvine. We initially became fans after the indulgent (albeit hazy) Super High Me, the documentary in which Benson smokes a ton of weed and measures the effects, but he managed to keep our affections with a continuous stream of funny in his Comedy Central specials and live podcast, Doug Loves Movies—and, most recently, his show titled The Benson Interruption where he sits around on stage and interrupts his friends. That's the show. Somehow, he makes it brilliant. Or maybe that's the hash talking. Pass the nachos.
