DOUG BENSON: MAKE US LAUGH FUNNY BOY!
Doug Benson, best known for umpteen appearances on Comedy Central Presents, Best Week Ever, along with his pot doc Super High Me, brings his Doug Benson Interruption to Largo, where he'll be cutting off fellow comics, usually of the hotshot variety.
Ã¢â¬Â¨LAW: Did you have a nice 4/20?Ã¢â¬Â¨BENSON: I'm pretty sure I did. Ã¢â¬Â¨ What's your favorite highlight from The Benson Interruption?
One time Zach Galifianakis, Paul F. Tompkins and Graham Elwood all switched coats and did impressions of each other. Anything can happen at an Interruption show, even wardrobe changes!Ã¢â¬Â¨ If you could call a moratorium on one over-used stand-up premise, what would it be?
Noticing things.Ã¢â¬Â¨ Didn't your mother teach that it's rude to interrupt people?Ã¢â¬Â¨Yes, but she also taught me to do what I love.
Who are some of your dream guests on The Benson Interruption?
Most of the comedians I admire have done it. Well, the living ones, anyway. So my dream would be to get all of my dead heroes on Ã¢â¬“ George Carlin, John Belushi, Chris Farley, Mitch Hedberg, Bill Hicks and, even though he wasn't a comedian per se, John Lennon. Ã¢â¬Â¨What do you do all day when you're on the road? Ã¢â¬Â¨Sadly, I spend most of my time in my hotel room staring at my computer. My computer's all, "Why don't you take a picture, it'll last longer."
Who do people say you look like?
Some character on South Park whose name I can't remember. But I'm sure it's a compliment. Right?
