- Both Benson's podcast recording and stand-up show start at 4:20 p.m. Nice.
If you don’t know him, these shows start at 4:20, which hints at his favorite subject matter.
But he’s not just doing weed jokes.
On Saturday, he’ll tape his podcast Doug Loves Movies, which started back in 2006. The show typically features guests talking about, well, movies and playing movie-related games. No word on who’s lined up for the SA taping.
On Sunday, however, Benson will fly solo, presenting a stand-up set.
In addition to his movie podcast, Benson also hosts the podcast Getting Doug with High, which makes sense considering he made a splash with his 2007 documentary Super High Me.
Less well-known is that he was an extra in Blade Runner (surprising!) as well as Fast Times at Ridgemont High (less surprising!).
$20-$30, 4:20 p.m. Saturday, August 7 and Sunday, August 8, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 Northwest Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, improvtx.com/sanantonio.
