Comedian Doug Benson Bringing His Movie-Themed Podcast to Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club This Weekend

Movie-loving marijuana enthusiast Doug Benson is nothing if not consistent with his brand.

Known to many for Super High Me — his 2007 pot-themed response to Morgan Spurlock's gimmicky fast food documentary Super Size Me — Benson is also notable as one of the early adopters on the podcast scene. He launched I Love Movies with Doug Benson all the way back in 2006, which he's bringing to Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club this weekend under its updated name, Doug Loves Movies. As suggested by the title, Benson discusses all things film with each week's guests, filling out the podcast's hour-plus episodes with segments including Watch This/Not That, Not for Emetophobes and Now Buscemi Now You Don't.

In a trademark move, Saturday's Doug Loves Movies show will start right at 4:20 p.m. — Benson's favorite time of day, natch. However, while he makes a point to toke up at 20 after the hour for each of his weekly YouTube livestreams of Getting Doug With High — so "it's 4:20 somewhere" — we doubt he'll be doing any smoking onstage at LOL, since, you know, it's not strictly legal in the Lone Star State.

$20-$30, 4:20 p.m. Saturday, February 1, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (866) 468-3399,
