I saw him at Cobb's in SF, so between tough parking and long line to get in, give yourself extra time.

If you sit near the front know that you will be targeted for material towards the end of the show :)

The show was awful. If I had to do over I would have walked out in the middle of his routine. I kept hoping that it would get better. It went from bad to worst. He sucks.

Other commenters hit it on the head: Doug Benson was hilarious. His stoner routine was at times genius, and we were laughing the whole time. Brian Posehn? God, that was terrible. His look was about the funniest thing; his material is very...continued

Description

Comedian/actor/writer Brian Posehn has most recently been seen on Comedy Central’s popular show, The Sarah Silverman Program and on tour as part of the Comedians of Comedy, of which he is one of the original members.

Besides writing and performing on HBO’s acclaimed Mr. Show, he has acted on sitcoms such as Just Shoot Me, Seinfeld, NewsRadio, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Friends.

Brian has also appeared in several movies, including Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He released his first graphic novel, The Last Christmas (2006), and a comedy album, Live in Nerd Rage (2006).

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 this current season, no big deal. Doug is a series regular on VH-1’s Best Week Ever. He also makes recurring appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. On the classic sitcom Friends, he had the nerve to hit on Jennifer Aniston. He has his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, is a reccurring character 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 enopugh for you, he’s a 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. Now 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 Doug the “Stoner of The Year.” Look for the documentary “Super High Me,” coming soon to a theater (or computer) near you! He also expresses his love of movies on Superdeluxe.com and in podcasts available on iTunes. Enough about Doug Benson already!
