You Made It Weird #11: Doug Benson

One of the funniest, quickest and most pick-up-huggable comedians ever gets super weird with his buddy Pete getting into blackout drinking, being older than he looks, Best Week Ever, and the ethical conflict behind doing Last Comic Standing. Plus another standup track from Pete’s UCB NY recordings (the never-released standup CD). CRISPY!

    I love that in the middle of his “I own bible trivia” he says that it’s Jonah and the Ark.

  2. HaileeJo says:

    Oh gosh, that little laugh at the end, very Mario Bros. Love it.

    You guys fucking ruined Cash Cab for me.
    Just kidding.
    But fuck.

  5. Gene says:

    I’ve always liked Doug Benson, but now that I know he may have saved Janeane Garofalo’s life, I like him a little less.

  6. onReload says:

    Great episode, I love the discussion on why to do TV like LCS, really interesting and Doug sounds insanely smart about the business.

  7. Ben Black says:

    Great show, Pete! Thanks for getting weirder!

  8. Crea says:

    Jesus I love the PTA conversation and that Doug doesn’t necessarily dig TWBB (acronyms: Suck It)
