I saw Arj a few years ago at Cobb's. He was hilarious then and even more funny now. He was particularly hilarious this time because he was visibly and audibly drunk. He has great timing and incisive wit and can do bits on just about everything under the sun. This was my first Doug Benson show and I was impressed. His bit on McDonalds' McGriddles almost made me piss my pants. Occasionally I felt that he was a little too focused on marijuana jokes. All in all, it was a night of hilarity and fun with my friends.
It would take too long to cite all of Doug Nenson’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!
Arj Barker has appeared on several television comedy shows since his 1997 appearance on Premium Blend. Most of his appearances are late-night shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien and The Glass House. He has had his own Comedy Central Presents episode on two occasions, first on 20th September, 2000 and again on 31st March, 2006. He also has appeared on the Australian show, Thank God You’re Here on 18th October, 2006 and the 19th September, 2007 (the latter of which he won).
Barker also co-wrote The Marijuana-Logues, an off-Broadway show currently showing in New York – the title is a parody of production The Vagina Monologues. Doug Benson and Tony Camin also wrote the play, and all three perform in it as the original cast.
NBC had given him the lead role for Nearly Nirvana, a sitcom originally scheduled for fall 2004. However, Barker was replaced in the lead role by the show’s creator, Ajay Sahgal, and then the show never aired.
Arj Barker also appears in the HBO sitcom Flight of the Conchords, as Dave, Bret and Jemaine’s friend, whom they meet after moving to New York.
