It would take too long to cite all of Doug Benson’s credits, but here’s a small sampling: How does a little show called NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” grab you? Fact: he finished top six during his run on the show last season. Benson is also a series regular on VH-1’s “Best Week Ever.”

2008 was a great year for Benson. After premiering at the South By South West Film Festival, Benson’s documentary film Super High Me became all the buzz. Super High Me explores the current debate over medical marijuana use in California and the United States, specifically focusing on the conflict between federal and state law and the explosive growth in medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles over the past two years. As part of his journey, Benson smokes, eats and vaporizes medical marijuana for thirty consecutive days in order to get "super high." But there is a catch--first Benson must go thirty days without any marijuana and undertake a number of tests, completing the same tests while medicated and while sober, in an effort to find out what marijuana does and how it really affects people.  The film is now available on DVD.

Fresh off the success of the critically-acclaimed film Super High Me, Benson released his first CD Professional Humoredian on ASpecialThing Records on July 15th. Professional Humoredian is available for purchase at, select Amoeba Records outlets, on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and many other online digital music stores. In true Benson style, Professional Humoredian was recorded at the Hollywood Improv on April 20th, 2008, best known as the stoner holiday 4/20. In Benson’s words, "I am a multi-tasking pot smoker. Just the other day I was walking down the street, putting eye drops in my eyes, talking on my cell phone and getting hit by a car."

Benson also makes recurring appearances on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Chelsea Lately” and “Red-Eye.” On the classic sitcom “Friends,” he had the nerve to hit on Jennifer Aniston and this year made a special appearance on “How I Met Your Mother.” He has his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, a guest appearance on “The Sarah Silverman Program,” and oops, almost forgot, got Larry David in a headlock on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” If that’s not enough for you, he’s a co-creator/writer/star of “The Marijuana-Logues,” a show that’s been a hit (small pun intended) in clubs and theatres from Los Angeles to New York – and drew a bongload of rave reviews. There’s a CD, also called The Marijuana-Logues, and a book, The Marijuana-Logues: Everything About Pot That We Could Remember. In 2006, High Times Magazine named Benson Stoner of the Year. He also expresses his love of movies in podcasts called “I Love Movies” available on iTunes.
