If you've been previously misinformed, I can promise you that Doug Benson's comedy isn't just for stoners.
The cooked/uncooked format of this (getting to hear the set twice) was genius. I listen to many podcasts because what I like about comedy or comedians has evolved over the years. Rather than just seeing the polished set that airs on TV, I prefer to hear my favorite comedians riffing, doing extemporaneous bits, working/controlling the crowd. I like that 'behind the scenes' feel of getting to hear how they actually they work out their sets - and the unique format of this album is a great exposure to that.
There's some imagery (and terms) that will stay with me forever, and always make me smile when I think of it.
I don't want to list more, I don't want to spoil any punchlines, but I could go on and on.
Now, the bad: I admire Doug for a lot of things, but mostly for his work ethic. The guy might be a stoner, but he's far more prolific than your average comedian. He puts out a new album every year like clockwork, he hosts a podcast about movies on a (more or less) weekly basis. He's already created and produced two movies (and is working on a third). And he's had a few shows appear here and there (most notably The Benson Interruption, which is sort of the MST3K of stand-up comedy). He's the best argument against weed turning you into a do-nothing slacker.
Unfortunately, this also means he's getting a little overextended. Some comedians only release an album when they've got a full set's worth of A-grade material.Read more ›

I loved the concept for this album. Providing two performances of the same material with one while high and one sober was a very cool idea.Published on March 17, 2013 by Pete Christensen
